    the bottom line is hopkins is a more tested, accomplished, higher regarded and just plain better fighter than kovalev. add a higher purse and two titles as opposed to one and he does more for stevenson in every single way.

    its common sense really, idk why im surprised people are being completely illogical about the situation because frankly thats the norm. but this might be the worst **** yet, the notion that fighting a living legend like hopkins rather than a guy whos best win is campillo or cleverly is somehow a duck is so far beyond ******ed i barely know what to say.

    A lot of Kovalev fans have a racial bias;to them,its ok for Kovalev to duck Hopkins for the easier Cleverly,its ok for GGG to duck Ward for the easier Chavez.But its not OK for Adonis Stevenson to pick Hopkins whose ranked above Kovalev and has a wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better resume then Kovalev who don't even have any great wins on his resume.

      And I'm pretty sure Kovalev has a 3 fight deal with HBO in 2014. I could be wrong
      It was HBO that rejected Hopkins Stevenson.And HBO rejected Stevenson/FonFara because of Haymon's involvement.So its HBO that's helping to drive Stevenson to Showtime,which is good because we may get to see a unification bout of all 3 major titles.Kovalev can keep that semi-major paper title the WBO that he won from a bum-instead of fighting Hopkins for a real title.

        You do realize he's fighting Fonfara next, not Hopkins right

        HBO let him fight Fonfara on the condition that he fought Kovalev next but nope. He could have easily fought Kovalev while making more money than against Fonfara and then fought Hopkins. Of course not, you're his manager/accountant and dont want him to lose so its ok for. Ill never understand how fans can act with a champ avoid his top contender

          Had Danny dodged Lucas though nsb would have had a heart attack! Stevenson is a duck! Simple as that!

            Anyone even considering fighting an old man like Hopkins should be penalised and slated at full will .

            There comes a time when you think, I don't want to be beating up on someone who has probably got almost close to HOF status but this ex pu$$y has no morals or dignity.

            I sincerely hope he can't avoid any serious threat to him for much longer and gets plastered for being a ducker and an ex pimp

              Showtime rejected Kovalev-Hopkins before HBO rejected Stevenson-Hopkins.

                  Al Haymon is a cancer on this sport. He makes Arum seem almost saintly.

                    The moment haymon got involved I knew this fight wasn't happening. It's days like these that make it tough to be a boxing fan.

                      stevenson wanna fight Hopkins. he's been saying that for years and people dont wanna listen. that is his dreamfight. Hopkins is huge in canada i know coz i live there. he is perceive as a legend like some type of wizard and he really captivated the mind of canadians specially quebecers. stevenson doesnt care about fighting Kovalev unless he get vastly overpaid for it. he can easily make 1,5 or 2 millz fighting Hopkins here.
                      am i a fan of the situation ? no coz i want him to fight Kovalev but do i understand whatz going on yes ! every boxer has a dream fight and for Stevenson it is the legendary bernard Hopkins unfortunately for us. maybe he might fight Kovalev after that but hbo is gonna have to overpay him
