For some reason the Trinidad fight stands out most in my head, just because of how B-Hop completley dominated Tito( who at that point hadn't be beaten up like that). The win over Antonio Tarver is another fight that was impressive to me.

I was sittin down with my brother last night and we were discussing some of BHop's most memorable performances, and decided to share and see what BS posters thought.

What do you think was Hopkins' most significant fight? In terms of relative importance to the sport and cementing his legacy?

I'll probably post up my thoughts in a minute, but since I'm a relatively young fan (22), I'm more interested in hearing about what some of the older fans think and what you guys consider to be hist most impressive performance and why

Also, feel free to share any personal stories or memories of watching the dude fight
the retards will tell you Trinidad but Trinidad was welterweight so that victory doesn't mean much really, Trinidad was past it. His best wins were over Tarver, Pavlik, and Pascal (both wins, yes he won the first fight too)

The Trinidad fight was legendary. Hopkins was considered nothing more than a stepping stone to Trinidad's greatness.

Or maybe Hopkins was just that good? It's not like Trinidad hadn't proven himself at middleweight.

Hopkins completely dismantled and stopped the guy ranked p4p #1, who had a damn middleweight tournament set up only for the reason of crowning Trinidad and setting up a Roy Jones fight, if I'm remembering correctly. I may be remembering that incorrectly.

That trumps a lot of the wins any fighter has since. I don't understand how anyone would discredit that win for Hopkins.

I'm not discrediting the win. It's just not nearly as impressive as the wins over Tarver, Pavlik, and recently Pascal. I guess TS said career defining and in that case it would be Tito cause he was the biggest star at the time. But man, middleweight was not the best weight for Trinidad, at welterweight he was far better and DLH still whooped his ass there

The hype was unprecedented and Hopkins was even invited to the White House to meet the president,where upon he received some "encouragement" from the leader of the free world: reaching down Bernard's pants,the president grasped Bernard's testicles,leaned over and gently whispered in his ear, "We need these to beat France,B-Hop - don't let us down,n^gga."



Needless to say,he didn't let them down and he solidified his status as a true American hero.
I LOL'd. Hopkins/Hakkar is one of my guilty pleasures


On topic, the annihilation of Tito is BHop's greatest performance.

I was too young to remember everything that was going on around the Tito fight, so I voted for Pascal II. (with Pavlik coming in close second for similar reasons)

I think at the end of the day beating George Foreman's record is what will be said first when lobbying for his ATG status. (especially to younger fans)

Not only that, but the nature of the fight. Pascal was pretty successful in making that an "ugly" fight in my opinion, and Hopkins succeeded in trading with a much younger and stronger opponent, out-foxing him when he wanted to and imposing his will when he needed to. I remember people saying that the only way he was gonna win that fight is if he didn't sit there and trade with Pascal. He did it convincingly, and in great form.
