Default Bernard Hopkins' most exciting fight?

If by exciting you mean schoolings in which B-Hop picks his opponents apart piece by piece there are plenty to pick from. Been checking out a few of his fights from his younger years and so far I like the Joe Lipsey fight and Antwon Echols 1 fights. Lipsey was 25-0 with 20 KO's going into the fight and after Hopkins KO's him in the 4th and the guy never fought again. Echols put up a good fight but Hopkins got into him toward the later rounds and won a decision.

Mangler411 posted quite a few of Hopkins older fights on youtube that I still need to check out. You aught to check them out too.

The finishes in both Taylor fights were edge of the seat stuff.

I really enjoyed the Tarver fight and the dismantling of Kelly Pavlik, he looked like Sugar Ray Leonard that night.

What a foulfest. Punches to the back of the head, bodyslams, hitting on the break, even the ref knocked Hopkins down by accident. This was the first fight I ever saw of Hopkins. I remember because it happened a day before the Vargas vs. Trinidad fight. HBO Boxing After Dark on a Friday? When is the last time that happened?
