B-Hop, well that's another conversation totally. It's been damn near a decade since that fight & B-Hop is fighting on the world class level, against naturally bigger men. I would find it hard to argue that he wasn't in his prime then.
Hopkins wasn't prime then, but that doesn't take away from the risk Oscar took in that fight at all. Hopkins is just a freak that has stayed at a very high level even after he was no longer prime.
