I don't think Hopkins stands a chance, even though he is the favored fighter. He is moving up a 2 weightclasses, which I silly since this is the last fight of his career. It's not like he is Sugar Ray Robinson, what is he trying to prove? I know he has been training for awhile, but adding an extra 15 lbs or so to his frame, could prove to be a bad move. He could be sluggish and slow, by screwing with is metabolism like that. Since he is a slow starter anyway, he can't afford to be sluggish in the beginning. Tarver will take full advantage of Hopkins in the first rounds. I think we will only see a couple good rounds from Hopkins. I don't think he will have any staying power with the extra weight. I guess win or lose, he is going out with a bang. I don't think we will see a knockout at all, I think it will be Tarver by decision. My husband is taking Tarver in 6, and Tarver said he will have Hopkins out in 5. Only time will tell, tonights the night.
