HOPKINS: People want to me to go up to 190 pounds to fight "superman" and be basically a sacrificial lamb but these same people will do their best to keep Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosley, and Ricardo Mayorga among a few, away from me. Why don't these people want those guys to fight me?

Case in point... I'm going to quote Larry Merchant, who's part of the system and he's nothing more than a puppet on a string, here's what he said... "Why are you calling out the little guys, I never heard of a middleweight calling out the little guys."

As the 160-pound champion, Hopkins is willing to move down to 157 pounds to fight either De La Hoya or Fernando Vargas, or up to 168 pounds to fight Jones.

The commentators of the Echols Hopkins I fight also talk about Hopkins wanting to fight Vargas

Where did he say he wanted to fight those fighters? He was making a point. The Delahoya fight was all about money and Hopkins drained himself to 156 pounds for the fight at Delahoya's request. Hopkins did fight Tarver at 175 and Tarver is bigger than Hopkins. So the arguments that he won't fight bigger fighters are absurd.

Again, where does it say Hopkins was looking for these fights? It doesn't. You're going by what a third party said. Publicly Hopkins called out Roy Jones. When did he ever publicly go after Reid, Mosley or Vargas?

Come fight night Hopkins rehydrated back up to 169 lbs, if you watch the fight again you will hear Jim Lampley mention it.

Well Merchant, why would they want me to fight a heavyweight? What is the problem with me calling out a fighter who's at 154 pounds? What is worse? Me fighting a guy that is 6 pounds away from me or me moving up to fight someone who is 30 pounds heavier than me.
lmao

The fight was at 170 and Pavlik is a huge middlweight. Bigger than Hopkins was. And Pavlik called out Hopkins and claimed he would knock him out as most [people thought. After Pavlik lost the "he was too small excuse" is played. Not to mention he's almost 20 years younger. To overlook Hopkins age is just ridiculous.

Yes it does. The first interview is with Hopkins himself and the other interview is with his trainer Bouie fisher.
