THIS IS GUNNA GET INTERESTING!!!!
I dont no what everyones views are on Calzaghe and Hopkins but its one of those fights were you can have an opinion and your opinion can be turned completely on its head..
The way I see Calzaghe beating Hopkins is the same way that Jermain Taylor did, this was by being fast at foot in and out not letting Hopkins get anywere near him..
However I thought Hopkins put a great show on against Antonio Tarver, I thought it was a top top fight..
I was talking to the bloke from ( Geezers Palace - Boxing Equipment Specialists: boxing boots, boxing gloves, boxing headguards, boxing punchbags, boxing protection, boxing rings ) geezers palace the other day and he thought that Hopkins mastered then man that is Antonio Tarver..
So its an interesting, two masters of the ring who arent quite in there prime but could go either way, more so than prehaps the brittish public think..

the way calzaghe' been talking he's itching to go toe-to-toe with hopkins. he should stay on the outside imo, but if he feels he can beat hopkins this way then more power to him. i feel he'll make the fight harder for himself, but it will make the fight more entertaining at the sametime. either way, i'm really looking forward to this fight!

welcome to the site:thumbsup:

Hopkins cant win the fight. He's not as good a fighter as Calzaghe, never has been.

117-111 Calzaghe.

This fight will be exciting! Mark my words. I think B-hop can pull it out. I'll be rooting for him anyway. Calzaghe will come out strong in the earlier rounds and will steal them with his flurries. B-Hop will then start countering him with hard right hands and will be rallying on the judges' scorecards. The last 2 or 3 rounds will determine the winner IMO. That's when we will see a lot of fireworks.

It will be an entertaining fight to say the least. I hope Joe does the razzle dazzle he was trying to put on for Kessler. Pretty funny stuff.

It'll be close after 6 rounds. Calzaghe takes everything the second half of the fight!

Easy? Against Bernard Hopkins? LMAO
Yup....The fight will be easy against Hopkins, this guys talk has everyone fooled.


Jermain Taylor is no Calzaghe, not even close, he was 1-1 with Hopkins IMO.

Easy fight for Joe.

You say forbes ( like myself ) can beat oscar, yet you say hopkins can't beat calzaghe. Hopkins/calzaghe is a much closer fight. And I agree Calzaghe will win but it'll be anything but easy. Even the best fighter of all time's offense was affected by hopkin's style.

No, i never said Forbes can beat Oscar because he cant.

I dont think it'll be the 3 round blow out like every else thinks though.

Now lets not get ahead of ourselves. Joe will finish him off but if you think a fight with Hopkins is a gimme you gotta be crazy.
it'll be easy in the sense that it wont be as hard as the Kessler fight.

Its not a gimme fight but its not a hard fight to call.

117-111 Calzaghe.

It wont be Calzaghes easiest fight but it wont be near his hardest fights either.

The Eubank and Kessler fights will prove to be harder.
