IBF/WBA light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (55-6-2, 32KOs) is expecting a very, very dangerous fight on November 8th, when he unifies with WBO champion Sergey Kovalev (25-0-1, 23KOs) at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Kovalev has never gone beyond the eight round, because he stops most opponents by the seventh.

Kovalev is regarded as one of the hardest punching boxers in the sport. Hopkins, nearly 50-years-old, has watched many big punchers come and go. He says Kovalev is not a hyped up puncher, he considers him the real deal.

"He is the real deal. Anyone who comes to every fight, to fight, and brings a double barrel shotgun - is the real deal. By no means is this a hype job on Kovalev's undefeated record with over 90% of knockouts. No matter who he fought, you cannot take away that he came to seek and destroy.  On that note, on that percentage, I'm no fool not to take anybody lightly at any time in my career. I will be mentally, physically, spiritually and anything else - ready - for anything he brings," Hopkins told BoxingScene.com.

"Kovalev No Hype, Brings Double Barrel Shotgun" What is he, a Jermain Taylor tribute act?

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]By easy I'm talking Hopkins winning 10-12 rounds. He didn't beat either guy that way, even if he was never in any trouble of losing. If Cloud and Murat can take rounds of Hopkins, there's no way he stops Kovalev from doing the same. This will be hard for Hopkins, win or lo...

[QUOTE=djcomplex]i really have to take my hat off to the alien. At the age of 50 he is willing to fight anyone, he is a great example of a warrior and a throwback to the real champions of yesteryear...oh yeah he is a champion of yesteryear..........[/QUOTE] Amen to this. I already had Hopkins...
