Who wins the battle between these 2 Philly boxers? Both were 6'1, both were world champions and altho Hopkins may be a better boxer, he sure ain't the better puncher.:boxing: Brewer was also known to come back strong after getting dropped, like against Herol Graham. And Hopkins could make 168 without a problem for sure. I just am not sure if he would want this fight, coz he wouldnt be having the physical advantage he usually enjoyed among middleweights.

I still like Hopkins in this one. Brewer was a little suspect around the chin and I'm sure that Hopkins punched harder than the likes of Herol Graham.....who had Brewer down twice from memory.

Even taken to decision, I favour Hopkins too.

Pastrano, if you're gonna take shots at Hopkins, ya gotta do better than this! Brewer not even close to being in Hopkins league, no matter the stage of their careers, weight,etc.

Hopkins wins a wide decision although a late stoppage wouldnt shock me,Brewer simply isnt in Bhops league

Prime Brewer was clearly better than most of Bhop's opposition at 160, except for Glen Johnson, RJJ, Trinidad, DLH and Jermain Taylor. That he lost to Echols means nothing, he kd him three times before that and that was past prime Brewer. Stoppage came too early too.

Brewer is a second class fighter in comparison to Hopkins. Bernard chops him down in 8.

Can you name even ONE contender Brewer ever beat at middleweight? Not to mention the multiple losses, some by KO. Brewer was a good offensive fighter, but had no chin whatsoever. The truth is that he was damn lucky that he didn't get Hopkins in the ring. His best days were at 168 anyway.

Other Bhop challengers superior to Brewer- Eastman, JD Jackson, Carl Daniels, Echols, and even Joppy. Anyone who has seen both BHop and Brewer fight knows this is a missmatch because of the difference in skill not because of them being the same height.

Your boxrec research and guessing about a fighter has become one big joke. Brewer was no where near Hopkins class and if you knew anything about him you would know this. Stop talking about fighters you know nothing about. You're not fooling anybody here and you look stupid.

Surely Holmes, Joppy, and Jackson are also better than Brewer and should be up there. What a weird thread. Brewer....Brewer beating Hopkins?
