Micheal Spink is greater than Bernard Hopkins and would beat Bernard Hopkins at LHW, UD.

WOW at you people this is a nightmare matchup Spinks was a finesse fighter the kind that Bernard feasted on.

Spinks major weakness was fighting on the inside B-Hop is probable the most effective inside fighter of the last 30 years and Bernard has the better resume also.

I love Bernard but this is tough one for him. Hopkins is nearly impossible to beat clearly and comfortably. It's always by nearly a point or 2. I think he'd frustrate and give Spinks hell but probably come up just short in the end.

B-Hop's resume is better then Spinks I don't see how that can even be disputed.

Shutout wins vs Tito Tarver Johnson and Pavlik and competitive but clear win vs #2 P4P Winky Wright

are greater then.

KO vs Cooney, competitive but clear win vs Muhaamad and Qawi and 2 razor thin wins vs Holmes

Spinks wins 10 times out of 10 imo,there are very few fighters i would favour over a prime Spinks at 175 and Hopkins sure as hell isnt one of them,he looked good beating Pavlik and Tarver who were decent fighters themselves,and nobody can doubt how great B-hop is,but he comes up short in this one

Spinks should be ranked higher all time,although not by much

Marvin Johnson
Yaqui Lopez

Pavlik and Johnson ain't in that class. Try again and prove once more you're an ignoramus.

PS. If you actually think Pavlik is anywhere NEAR that class you should be legally barred from ever watching a fight again as you're too fvcking retarded to comprehend what you're seeing.
