it wasn't no weight drain.

tarver ain't no one special.

prime for prime hopkins beats milk dud. a lot of good middleweight to light heavyweight champions in history would have.

milk dud lost to hopkins because hopkins is better than tarver. that's just how it is. what's tarver's excuse for looking like crap before rocky?

"Now, should this ***8220;fight***8221; represent the end of the line for Hopkins, he leaves the squared-circle as the premier middleweight of his era. I, unlike many of my colleagues, do not consider ***8220;Nard***8221; as an all time great, but his legacy as an all time ***8220;good***8221; is secured. He did reign as a champion for a very long time, but it was against a weak pool of contenders and unproven prospects. His two ***8220;career defining***8221; wins came against blown-up welterweights. Still, Hopkins***8217; ***8220;rags to riches***8221; and ***8220;fight the power***8221; story, dedication to training, model of clean living, and lengthy title reign are a testament to his character, resilience, and are great examples for young pugs all over the world. " 2005 by Sergio Martinez from dhb.com

i wonder if this guy changed his mind form three years ago. I think bernard is more than all time good...lol

"Before Saturday night, some would have argued against Nard***8217;s being considered a great fighter, but I think the manner in which he out-classed a big, strong, young undefeated champion left no doubt in the minds of any knowledgeable boxing fan that Hopkins is more than just one of the best fighters of this era and a future hall of famer. I think everyone can agree that Hopkins is one for the ages."-Doug Fischer from maxboxing

good to see Hopkins getting the credit he deserves.

i would put him along ali and robinson. 20 defenses at middleweight, moves up and pwnz tarver who at the time was a big win, beats winky top 5 p4p at the time, controversial loss to calzaghe and beats pavlik top 10 p4p. not easy to accomplish i dont care who you are that is ONE HELL of a resume
