Hopkins wont get appreciated until he retires and we look back on his career. Give the guy a break. When all of the great middleweights die he will be up there chatting to Greb, La Motta, Zale, Cerdan, Hagler, Darcy, Ketchel, Fitzsimmons, Walker all the great middleweights hes on there level not necessarily above or below but he's on the level. Not in tnat order. Throw names i might have missed out on in the list. Please dont mention RJJ on the list.

yeah, i think its just a matter of time after a fighter retires that he's remembered fondly or as "one of the greatest"

Hopkins is definitely an all-time great at middleweight. I don't know about the top one ever... Hagler was better, IMO, but Hop could be right up there. He could be thrown into an argument with anybody, pfp, in the middleweight division.
