Hopkins has the record of title defences at middleweight with around 20 defences, and he is in the top 5 all time middleweights on pretty much anybody's list. now look at the guys Hopkins beat in those 20 defences and then compare them to the guys Michalczewski beat. u ll find out the opponents are on the same level
I wouldn't have B Hop anywhere near my top 5 middleweights list. And i wouldn't have Michalczwski anywhere near my top 20 light-heavyweights let alone top 5.
It's flawed logic anyway. You need to compare Michalczewski to other light-heavyweights not to middleweights. A top 5 light-heavyweight isn't necessarily the equal of a top 5 middleweight anyway.
