Everyone that hopkins lost to, sturm would lose to as well. You discredit the trinidad win for hopkins, yet trinidad would be able to beat the majority of guys that sturm defended his title against.
Trinidad wasn't a true MW, good but overrated win, Tito was a beast at WW.

I never said Hopkins was slow, but he has a weakness against fast 2 handed fighters his own size, such as Jones, Taylor and Calzaghe. Though I agree all three of those guys would beat Sturm. It's an interesting fight

Speaking of Hopkins neutralizing the jab, his performance against Pavlik was amazing, punch perfect

B Schenk former WBO MW champ
J Castillo WBA MW champ
S Sylvester former IBF MW champ became champ after losing to Sturm

plus other names -
H Cherifi past his best former WBC MW champ
G Lorenzo alledged future Pavlik opponent
K Gevor title challenger at MW & SMW
K Sato (undefeated)
R Griffin
J Pittman (undefeated)
N G Alcoba (undefeated)
M Maseo
R Varon
H J Velazco

You find that their MW resumes arent as far apart as people would like you to believe.
We know Hopkins has a problem dealing with fast 2 handed fighters, losing to Jones, Taylor and Calzaghe, and Sturm is a fast 2 handed fighter

So who would win at MW Hopkins or Sturm?


I wonder how Sturm's best wins would match up against Hopkins

Sylvester v Joppy

Macklin v Holmes

Castillo v Echoles

Probably closer than you think

He's far from the fighter you're painting him as. he's not a 2 handed fast fighter, he's a 1 handed fighter who would get clinched and mauled in the inside with dirty boxing and cheap tactics.

It'd look a lot like the Winky fight with less headbutts.
Sturms not athletic WTF are you talking about!
