JT was more talented but B-Hop clearly achieved more.

Good point. So in a way, he was a lot like former World Chess Champion Tigran Petrosian, who preferred to extinguish his opponent's attacks before making his own.

You got the idea. Those tactics alone will flaw James Toney whole game plan. B-hop was never the aggressive inside fighter, but more of a passive aggression using range. Toney prevailed when people were on their eyes counters. joffense and tried to throw shots to the head, where he countered and made them pay everytime. Hopkins would be the smarter man and do just what you said, try to land that long right hand and "tie up" smothering all of Toney 's counters.

Good honest opinion. We will never know, but it wouldn't surprise me if James Toney beat Bhop, it's boxing

If they fought prime for prime I gotta go with B-Hop in a close decision.
toney's style was more exciting to watch, BHop's fights were like watching paint dry. somehow i can't see BHop at HW even though he has the better discipline. in my opinion, RJJ and Toney are the best fighters of my generation, and i agree with the bold parts about Bhop and Toney

if Toney went neck and neck technically with Mccallum he could certainly handle what Hopkins has. Hopkins has longevity and consistency, but h2h I see Toney beating him. A good way of looking at this is; Take Toney and lets sat he stays in great shape for 10 years and takes on B-hops resume, he handles those guys with ease, including Tito - who he would have knocked out inside 6.

Hopkins had a better time with Jones because of his height and because he was ALWAYS in shape. I am not totally dsputing Jones win over Toney, but Toney really didn't look prepared and struggled to make weight - he also was never given a rematch by Jones.
