[QUOTE=Golden Boi 360;15902601]People say Hopkins is boring but I found his schooling of Shumenov impressive.[/QUOTE] yeah and that right hand he dropped him with was beautiful. But lets not kid ourselves, Shumenov is trash.

im picking flores in this. I guess ellerbe got his promoters license if mayweather promotions is being the sham promoter this time.

Decent matchup... Flores should beat him, but if he can't, then I think flores is at a dead end of his career.. Flores wins, then it should open up some big fights for him
