I like Mayweather, BUT Hopkins has proven over and over again that he's willing to fight anyone; and is not afraid to lose which I think is key. What he did against Pavlik, Tarver, and Tito was a perfect example of why Hopkins has the better legacy. All 3 of those fights he was expected to be KOd and to lose badly; in result, he TKOd Tito, and beat Tarver and Pavlik in lopsided decisions. And some people forget to mention that Tito at the time was #3 on the P4P list and Pavlik was #7. Mayweather has a good legacy as well, but I think Hopkins just has a better legacy.

Your bang on and not to mension he was the underdog going into the Winky fight aswell. Floyd will probably only fight another couple of times, Bernard will always have the better legacy. :thumbsup:

Bernard definetly. Its a shame for Floyd too, because with the depth of the division he fights in he could have retired with an unbelievably good resume.

Way too soon for this, Hopkins legacy is at it's end, Mayweather's could keep going for another 10 years, we don't know.
Mayweather will be 32 next time he fights, he's got 2-3 fights left in him max...That still wont be enough.

This is an easy one...B-Hop Resume> PBF. B-Hop is still beating P4P fighters at his age and that speaks magnitudes for his career. The Living Legend....BERNARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD HOPKINS!

Mayweather fights for big money, while Hopkins fights against big names. That's the difference for me.
