Following his split-decision loss to Joe Calzaghe in Las Vegas, Bernard Hopkins was very upset with the official decision and said that he was robbed of a clear points win. He says that he took Calzaghe to school and the viewing public knows that he was robbed.
"I just really feel like I took the guy to school," said Hopkins. "I feel like I made him fight my fight, not his. I wanted him to run into my shots. I think I made him do that, and I think I made it look pretty easy. I think I controlled the pace, and I controlled the fight."
Although CompuBox showed that Calzaghe landed the most punches against Hopkins than any of Philadelphian's previous opponents, Bernard says that Calzaghe was missing most of his punches.
"I think it was an old-school execution. He really wasn't landing his shots. Maybe if he threw five or six, one or two landed if he was lucky."
