The B-HOP was aggressive last night and had more energy then ANY of his last few fights and would beat both JT and lil boy Joe if he came and fought like he did. If HOP was as aggressive as he was last night that SD L to Cally would have been a W by UD for Hop. Like he stated himself, he has changed his style and will not wear the seat belt when driving anymore (which is the reason he barley "lost" to Joe). He will take chances and look for KO's more often. HOP last night WAS NOT the same HOP everyone sall VS JT and slapper Joe. FACT. Don't deny it because it IS the truth and you will only be lying to yourself if you believe otherwise.
NO ONE can sit here and tell me that they where not surprised how HOP fought the cleanest fight in a long time. Didn't even clinch that often. B-HOP last night reminded of HOP of old. He was aggressive and took many chances against a hard puncher and came out on top.
Lets see Jones dismantle slapper Joe so we can get a HOP VS Jones II and then they both can retire for good so they BOTH can go down in history as ATGs!!!!!!!!
Over all I'm happy for both guys. Pavlik just got a first hand "paid" lesson on defense and craft. He should take as much from the fight as he can. He still has the belts and can move back down and continue to dominate 160. Like Hop said he just needs to work on some things he will be a great fighter. WIN WIN for both guys!
Congrats to HOP!!!! ALL TIME BAMF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
