Ray, i'm just saying what would happen if he followed the route of Roy Jones Jr and, a better example, Floyd Patterson.
Both were middleweight/light heavyweights who moved up to Heavyweight. They fought in the 190-200lb range, which had been a heavyweight weight for a long time. Actually RJJ fought at Heavyweight at 194lbs, so I assume you can still campaign for Heavyweight at that weight.
If Hopkins was 29-33 years old and bulked up to the 195lbs rounds, could he defeat the Klitschkos in a heavyweight match-up. Or a Klitschko. That is all. It is a fantasy fights because it can never happen, but this is a discussion forum where people exchange opinions.
