WBC lightweight heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins is not going to make a prediction of an "exciting fight" for next Saturday's defense against Chad Dawson at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. If Dawson comes to actually fight, then Hopkins plans to make it exciting.

That is really Hopkins chance, if Dawson comes to fight. If Dawson boxes using his physical advantages B-Hop is going to be kind of stuck. If Dawson comes to fight and hurt B-Hop he falls into the trap most fighters fall into against B-Hop, that really is not who Dawson is though and in this f...

I hope Bhop wins and fights Erdei next. Erdei won't run: he'll duke it out with him in the middle of the ring. Then you'll see Bhop run..
