fry up, who the f/uck are you? Fight Aficionado is a senior poster at ESB. He’s wrong here, he’s right there but he’s consistent and has his own unique style so f/uck off.

What are their listed heights? Bhop is a straight 6 feet but Shumenov looks 6-2 here. Odd thing is he’s never looked like a tall light heavyweight.

“Old school boxing is not headbutting and holding. What Hopkins does is his own style. Just because he is old, that doesn’t make his style old school. He sometimes refer to it as “dirty Philly style”.” – I’d say Bhop is definitely old school. Back in the day a lot of dirty tricks went down. Holding opponents’ elbow on the opposite side of the ref so it’s unseen. Tight defense but keeping himself in position to counter. Grappling to slow down the pace and making it appear the opponent is the one holding. My first boxing trainer who had been a fighter in the 1950s called this “creative laziness.” Bhop’s definitely a throwback fighter.

I hate Hopkins during the Roy Jones era. But I have to appreciate his thing now. His last 3 fights were entertaining. At his age you have to ask how is this guy were able to beat young champions. Hopkins is one of the guys who don’t have a flashy skills and athletism Floyd or Roy Jones has. But if you look and observe very carefully they have something that others don’t have. There is one guy I observe that seems to have no skill at all and yet he became a heavyweight world champion not just once but twice,his name is John Ruiz. So please try to observe more and try to understand why are these guys keep on winning.

Sorry but to me this fight is more hype then anything else, Great hype job, but, I don’t have time for this farce, RETIRE champ, you were great especially when you retired Pavlik and Trinidad … “The Language Of the Ring”

Age is starting to show on the face of the people’s champion.

Hopkins defies nature, but Shumenov ain’t no title holder. He’s a pretender. He got SCHOOLED by Campillo and gifted a bogus decision. Believe that!

Unifying two belts at 49 years of age. Phenomenal.

Posted April 18, 2014 7:54 am 


This wud b the perfect fight end his career on.

I’m not a big fan of Hopkins. But at almost 50 years old, the guy is incredible. If he wins this fight tho, it’s either retirement or he’ll end up getting smashed to pieces by Kov and Stevenson, or embarrassingly beaten by mediocre opposition.

Hopkins looks really old. Shumenov will Krush him like Superman. Look I just unified the LHW division. It’s easy.

Posted April 18, 2014 4:43 am 


Dmx, that might be the most untrue comment you’ve made expect for the lies about Hopkins mom. The truth is that you can only achieve what Hopkins has by hard work and dedication. Hopkins has already cemented his legacy and now hes just collecting belts and makind history.

Posted April 18, 2014 4:33 am 


Everything Hopkins has achieved has been by cheating, lying, fouling and play acting
It counts for nothing . . . Worthless

Hopkins set the fight to be in Wash DC where his judges will score every round for him, his referee will allow him to throw lots of low blows, to the legs, balls, hips, hitting behind the head, headbutting, elbows, etc., if Shumenov were to knock Hopkins down, Hopkins’ referee will call it a slip, I will always remember the referee, judges and boxing commission that cheated Khan and Peterson was on roids……………….

third world

hopkin’s is a racist and a dirty fighter. i hope smoger isn’t the ref. if he is,i turn off the t.v. i sincerely hope shumenov ends this nonsense.

Posted April 18, 2014 1:12 am 


I really wonder how it would feel like if Hopkins was low blowed, head butt, twist down arm lock, rabbit punched, shoulder butt, and many more dirty low down Hopkins dirty fighting tricks. mmmmmm ????? Wonder how this piece of garbage street thug filth would feel like afterwards ?????

Posted April 18, 2014 12:27 am 


I am really looking forward to Kovalev hurting Hopkins real bad . . .

Posted April 17, 2014 11:59 pm 


how do these bogus fights at light heavy keep getting set up and pawned off? nard hop and adonis go running to showtime and dodging kovalev like the plague. Boycott both their garbage attempts to siphon money from boxing fans with garbage matchups. I am

Total waste of time, Hopkins the moronic racist is the worst boxer in the world.

Old school boxing skills, hopkins is not the dirtiest fighter in boxing but he is the most hated on and he is no doubt one of the all time greats.
