Sean Monaghan Ready: I Would Blitz Bernard Hopkins

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Popular East Coast light heavyweight contender Sean Monaghan (22-0, 14KOs) feel ready for a major title shot. Highly ranked by most of the major sanctioning bodies, Monaghan is eager to face three of the current beltholders - WBA 'regular' champion Juergen Braehmer, IBF/WBA champion Bernard Hopkins, or even WBC champion Adonis Stevenson.

Braehmer, Stevenson and Hopkins recently defended their titles and have no upcoming dates scheduled. WBO champion Sergey Kovalev already has a set return date on August 2nd against Blake Caparello.

"I think a lot of people are licking their chops at Adonis Stevenson. I don't think he looked that great in his last fight. Bernard Hopkins, definitely, at 49-years-old, he looked terrible in his last fight. He fights very selective guys. He's a very well matched up guy. I would blitz Bernard Hopkins. I would do what Maidana did to Mayweather, but with more boxing skill. I would keep the heat on him," Monaghan told BoxingScene.com.

This past Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Monaghan won a lopsided ten round decision over veteran Elvir Muriqi, but suffered a terrible cut around his left eye in the ninth round.

This guy is f*cking sh*t and just struggled to beat some journeyman who is he trying to fool? I actually couldn't believe how poor this guy was.

I would love to see him versus Kovalev. Their styles would make for a great fight. Let's see him blitz Kovalev.

i think this guy needs to stop listening to his hanger ons and stay busy fighting low level bums, Hopkins would toy with this guy and make him look as stupid as he sounds with that comment
