Bernard Hopkins throws well below wgt. class avg. and landed 41% of his power punches. Hopkins opponents landed 50% fewer punches vs. BHop than in their previous 4 fights and threw 41% fewer. Beibut Shumenov, making a huge step up in class, threw and landed above wgt. class avg. (vs. Kovacs, Ornelas, Santiago, Campillo I & II) and landed 42% of his power shots. Can the inexperienced Shumenov (he's fought 101 pro rounds- Hopkins 301 title fight rounds) put up those numbers vs. the master BHop?
