He'd have to take a hell of a lot of punches but then again, Hopkins would have to deal with Martinez's power. The advantage is obviously with Hopkins, his experience, size, skill and better resume make him a favourite, but only slightly.
From what I've been hearing of Hopkins he seems jealous of Martinez and is probably looking for one last massive payday. The old nut job even wanted a fight with Haye
no way guy hopkins was way faster then you're giving him credit for. Watch the trinidad fight. Martinez beat a bum. Doesn't mean he could keep prime hopkins off him.
