How can anyone defend Hopkins in the “who ducked who” wars for Roy?
Hopkins was certainly the duck. He called out Roy for the rematch I believe for more exposure.
He wanted a 50/50 with Roy but I thought Roy being p4p king at the time was generous in offering 60/40 to a guy he was more relevant then and already defeated.
Can anyone say B-Hop deserved a 50/50 fight when:
Roy was considered the best fighter in the world at the time
The bigger name and bigger draw.
Already won the first fight.
And Hopkins beating Roy would do much more for him the Roy beating Hopkins again would do for Roy.
Can anyone really say this wasn’t a duck?
