Exactly. That was no schooling, it was a close fight that I frankly had Hopkins winning. Too much slapping from Slappy

Here's a little fact for the most biased amongst you.

Calzaghe laid hands on Hopkins at a rate unseen since rjj.

Joe won because he put a beating on Hop and if Hop wasn't an ATG defensive fighter he would've been bodybagged.

This.

Joey Zags was more past-it, in relation to Hopkins at that point in both their careers.

His hands were basically full of scar tissue and bone chips at that point.

Also, style-wise, Joe's style was more based around qualities that decline with age, such as speed, and stamina. Hopkins was never a work-horse.

Hopkins at that point had more time to refine his strengths and exploits in the ring.

Hopkins adjusted his style in his late 30s, its what gave him longevity through his 40s. He dropped his output and spoiled more to save energy. If you watch a younger hopkins against echols, he had a higher output.

Hops landed the cleaner, harder shots vs calzaghe. Now calzaghe won, but barely and that was based on outworking a guy 7 years older than him.

Nah for some reason I think he'll stay in the "defended a unrecognised belt for a decade against unranked fighters" and the "only beat 3 fighters ranked in the top 5" club.

So do you take compubox stats as gospel?

Saying he was "too good" for him is a stupid claim considering he dropped him and the fight was clearly at the very least competitive and close.
