Default Bernard vs Haye

This is a potential fight that could help inject further interest in the HW division. Who do you think would win?

I think Hopkins would make life difficult for Haye. He has a great chin and even at 45 his stamina may be superior to Haye's. Sounds ridiculous. But I think it would be interesting.

You mustnt like Hopkins, I think Haye stops him without to much trouble. Hopkins has never fought over light-heavy and is too old to try now. Haye is too quick and powerful. Take nothing away from B-Hop though, he's been one of the best fighters of the last decade but this is a step too far.

Hmm. Nah, Hopkins has just mentioned it a few times recently. This is a thread to see if that fight could be taken seriously (just realised this was the wrong board, if a moderator can please move it).

Anyway, Haye would definitely be the favourite. Hopkins is walking around as a Light-Heavyweight right now and there's not too much height difference between him and Haye. Haye is naturally bigger and he hits hard, but Bernard has an excellent chin and I believe he can make life difficult for virtually anybody.

Some people may think he has a chance.

6'1 to 6'3 but yeah, Hopkins would have to beef up. He'd lose speed, but he usually slows opponents down and gets them to fight at his pace.
