People who deny his legacy seem to be people who just don't like him.

De La Hoya, Trinidad, Wright, Pavlik.. ALL had to move up to fight him.
He's lost to Taylor (twice), Calzaghe, Roy Jones.
Allan, Joppy, Eastman, and Johnson I give him credit for.

But the first four?? that's like giving De La Hoya credit for fighting lightweights in this day and age.
I guarantee if De La Hoya wins against Manny they wont give him as much credit as they did Hopkins for barely beating a blown up Winky Wright or such.

I voted YES.He hasn't only beaten smaller fighter's but I will say he seem's to perform at his best and most comfortable against fighters that moved up in weight.

Hall of Famer.. yes. All time great as in Sugar Ray Robinson Muhammad Ali, Henry Armstrong, Joe Louis, Willie Pep, Roberto Duran, Benny Leonard, Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Sam Langford? Hell no.. They fought people their size. Sometimes bigger.
Hopkins biggest wins are against smaller opponents.

since when the size of a fighter everything? I think the argument could be made that Winky was still effective at 170, he almost won in fact.
