Turbo-Hamster laughing at the cane toads
SREDMOND – this is my problem here. YOu laud Hopkins for his past achievements – fair enough, but then use that to somehow excuse him not fighting Kovalev.
The past is the past, there are fighters in the LHW division right now want to mix it up and show who is #1.
One of the main players is Kovalev, he wants any of those fights.
If you are a boxing fan, you should WANT those fights to happen. Why don`t you?Posted May 29, 2014 5:21 am

Tark, there is NO comparison Kovalevs a NOBODY when discussed alongside Hopkins… Just as Nathan Cleverly is NOBODY when compared to Nard.. Hops has MORE World Championship fights than Kovalev has actual fights most likely.. You compare Cleverly and Calzaghe? Yeah that makes a lot of sense HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Fact that you are droning on about Kovalev trying to get to a 49’year old is pretty funny… Kovalev and Stevenson are NOT Great fighters and most likely NEVER will be… Kovalev really has enjoyed beating mostly C listers and thus comes from the same mold as most early stage boxers constructed by the media.. He is NOT the top guy at 175 despite dumb arguments to the contrary, just as GGG is NOT top man at 160, that’s Sergio Martinez until he gets taken..But then again you have declared Shawn Porter “A Masterboxer” HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!Posted May 27, 2014 9:58 am
Kovalev ain’t knocking out HOPs because Nard knows how to defend and shut down guys in a manner that this newbie has never seen.. Chad Dawson’s handspeed trumped Kovalevs by plenty and he could not get much clean leather on Hops… B Hop is 49 and Kovalev cannot smear or damage such an established legacy… Hops is a polarizing figure, I have wanted to see him retire myself on several occasions but the fact is that these young guys keep getting outfought by the Grandmaster
What’s wrong with just respecting fighters across the board without taking ethnicity into consideration? There are and have been a lot of great fighters from all races. But it seems some are more interested in race than in boxing. One things for sure this site sure is an eye opener to see just where this world is concerning race.Posted May 27, 2014 8:34 am

Peej, consider this: there are many who would pay good money to see Hopkins vs kovalev just to see Hopkins koed. Im certainly one of themPosted May 27, 2014 5:38 am
The ring walk is scheduled for 10 to 10 which i suppose might depend on how the fights before it go if it is on time or not. I think Eddie Hearn got dispensation for the show to finish later from the local council due to the amount of coach packages being laid on to get people away from the venue after the fight.Posted May 27, 2014 5:17 am

What time does the fight start? I’ve heard Wembley has to be empty by 10.00 PM (BST).Posted May 27, 2014 3:33 am
And fighting Kovalev would not break the bank for Hopkins. There isn’t much money in a Kovalev fight because his fan base is not great. It will be if he continues to do what he has been doing but at this time there is no money in it.Posted May 27, 2014 2:23 am
Hopkins beat Taylor, only the judges saw it as he didn’t. Fact is Kovalev did take the easier route instead of fighting Hopkins. That is just a fact. You should go by your own advice and stop repeating it over and over again. It won’t change the facts.Posted May 27, 2014 2:22 am
Bears you are a dumb racist BTICH. He made more money than he made against Dawson and more than what was offered for the Kovalev fight against Fonfara. You are just a dumb BTICH. Just accept itPosted May 27, 2014 2:20 am
Fighting Kovalev would break the bank for Hopkins.. Unfortunately Hopkins knows such a fight would also break Hopkins’ bones … and break his face.Posted May 27, 2014 1:56 am
Cleverly an easier route than Hopkins??? The undefeated Cleverly had the same brawling style that Calzaghe had. Cleverly’s only loss was to Kovalev.
Hopkins lost to that wimp Jermain Taylor twice… a guy who gets knocked out by everybody.
My money would be on Cleverly to beat the crap out of Hopkins. Cleverly called Hopkins out and Bernard suggested he fight Kovalev. He did and got smashed.. Then Hopkins fought a guy who was smashed by Cleverly … and couldn’t stop him.Posted May 27, 2014 1:53 am
He got a one fight contract that is not sh!t dumb phuk.
He was about to in a superfight with kovalev that was probably gonna pay more than anything he will ever make. Adonis “quazzi motto yelling sanctuary running to showtime” stevenson had been waffling and showing fear for sometime. It was no secret what the intentions were for adonis quazzi motto. The two best light heavies fighting. He would have had the best pay day ever and his fight with nard will not top it, or match it. Adonis was made to look like a biatch on multiple occasions. kovalev even spit on him and now he got exposed by fonfara. The cats stock has tumbled about as bad as broners. broner, mayweather, and adonis are simply EMBARASSED RIGHT NOW.
and so are their rabid nuthuggersPosted May 27, 2014 1:50 am
Just went to ESPN. Dan Raphael has hopkins ranked third under adonis and kovalev. Did you know know kovalev broke agnews ribs??? Did you know he reaps and harvests souls in the ring?? well now you do.
I told you dumba$$ hopkins is not recognized as sh!t at light heavy but holding on to titles that were wrongfully taken from campillo. Kinda like when chagaev got wrongfully stripped and they handed the WBO title to who was it nikolay valueve and let haye fight for it??? GARBAGE… nard hops a fake champ son. those are kovalevs titles.Posted May 27, 2014 1:45 am
Hey little BTICH, I mean Bears. Stevenson went to Showtime and got paid much more money for this fight than what they were offering. Now he is going to fight a living legend in Hopkins. Much more prestige than fighting Kovalev. And yes Kovalev was the mandatory for Hopkins belt but chose an easier route. I never said he was ducking anybody, he wanted a title and he went and got one. I see nothing wrong with that. But saying Hopkins ducked Kovalev is ridiculous. But I already know that you are a Hopkins hater because you are a racist BTICH.Posted May 27, 2014 1:44 am
Your just upset that you are posting incorrect info and trying to push that garbage on me. Sorry for correcting you but get used to it if you post crap.Posted May 27, 2014 1:42 am
Negative, Pac did not take full testing against Bradley. Bradley on the other hand did both testings. Vada and USDA. Pac only did the nevada testing. Which is bogus. But I don’t think Pac is on anything. But get your facts straight. You are once again wrong.Posted May 27, 2014 1:41 am
posting with peej is like talking to a 5 year old.Posted May 27, 2014 1:37 am
PEEJ is on every thread claiming kovalev did not want to fight hopkins and that adonis must have running to showtime. Is this dude that much of an idiot? What a phuk head. NOw he is pretending Fraud may has not come out with a thousand and one excuses on why he would not fight pac? Does anyone read this dude’s garbage a$$ posts? what a retard.
Some people are like PEEJ, just believe what they want to believe. What an utter imbecile.Posted May 27, 2014 1:37 am
peej, you’re an idiot. eveyone but you knows that pacman agreed to any and all tests floyd wanted. they had a deal. that’s when arum became the only problem.Posted May 27, 2014 1:34 am
pacquiao took full testing for bradley. pacman didn’t have anywhere near the muscles bradley had. he said he cut back his strength training for speed work and hates to overeat to stay at 147. he weighs in at 145 lately. he’s fine with being a small welterweight.Posted May 27, 2014 1:30 am
Nope you are full of crap. First off Pac never agreed to the testing. He needed cut off dates. That is the first thing you are wrong. Yeah they did agree to 50/50 in 09. But that is clearly off the table after Floyd established himself as a bigger seller than Pac. And till this day it is still that. So once again get your facts correct.Posted May 27, 2014 1:24 am
that’s a lie peej. floyd said 50/50 was fair on the first go around over 5 years ago. the money issue wasn’t the problem because floyd agreed to 50/50. when testing protocols were nogotiated the money became the issue. pacquiao said he would take less to get the fight done. they all agreed on the money and arum agreed floyd would get 10% more than pac. so you’re full of crap.Posted May 27, 2014 1:22 am
Please. No way was Arum going to allow them to give all there money away to charity. Yeah that is a good gesture to help his tax issues what ever they are. But still that was never going to happen. It is easy to say that. Why not take what was being offered to him and let him give that away to charity. Why is he worried about Floyds part. And yall are right they did agree to the purse a long time ago. They agreed to 50/50 split but Pac didn’t want to take the drug testing. The same testing now he still has issues with and one he has only taken when in China. And only when his former strength and conditioning coach was on the opposite end of the ring.Posted May 27, 2014 1:17 am
I am not lying. That was what Arum has stated the whole time. No he hasn’t said much about the split now but that is what he was saying before hand. That is not a lie. That is truth. As a matter of fact when Floyd offered 40 mil they said no had to be 50/50Posted May 27, 2014 1:14 am
peej you’re lying. arum is not insisting on 50/50. why do you lie so much?Posted May 27, 2014 1:10 am
They agreed on the money a long time ago.
Mayweather even said “Manny only wants to fight me because of the millions he owes in taxes. He’s looking for me to pay his taxes.”
Manny said, “Mayweather, Look. To make sure I don’t make any money off you I’ll fight you for free. Let’s both give our entire purses to needy charities as a great example for the whole world. How about that? There’s millions of needy and starving people in the world who will die without our help. I’m willing to help them under these conditions. To satisfy you that I’m not making any money off you. Are you willing to help the needy in this way Floyd? Do you want to be a world revered philanthropist? We’ll win the prayers of millions through our generosity. That will be worth more to us in the next world than billions here.”
Manny finds a way to shut Floyd down on every argument.Posted May 27, 2014 1:05 am
I am sure Floyd would have no problem offering 70/30. But Arum has said numerous times it has to be 50/50Posted May 27, 2014 12:55 am
I could care less about what you are sick and tired of. I never claimed he was ducking. I said he chose the easier route. I may have just posted he was ducking because yall keep saying Hopkins is ducking which is ridiculous.Posted May 27, 2014 12:54 am
Well sorry PAC beating the third best on the planet ensures a split of at least 70-30 and no less. When your beating the top p4p your stock goes up not down.Posted May 26, 2014 11:41 pm
After Stevenson’s horrendous showing against the totally inept Fonfara—who would never have lasted a single round with Kovalev—I think Hopkins will risk a fight with Stevenson.
But he won’t win… Stevenson is too young, quick, and hard punching for him.Posted May 26, 2014 11:39 pm
Problem with that fight is if it goes to purse bid Pac probably still wouldn’t take it because the split would be 85% to 15% or 75% to 25% and that would be in Floyds favor. They won’t make the fight unless it is 50/50Posted May 26, 2014 11:31 pm
No actually Tark brought Pac into it trying to prove a point in which he failed to do. Well why would Floyd want to work with Arum when Arum has constantly come out with excuses on why the fight couldn’t be made. Heck Roach has already come out and said he sees no reason why Arum wouldn’t step aside for this fight but apparently this is not gonna happen.Posted May 26, 2014 11:29 pm
You bought Pac and floyd into it by saying manny went the other way. That’s wrong floyd said no as I said in the post before on an interview on fighthypePosted May 26, 2014 11:23 pm
No floyd said he won’t work with arum, pretty huge block since he promotes manny. Manny was only just recently 1 WBC and floyd said on fighthype no to the fight. Will work with arum 3-4 years ago but not now. InterestingPosted May 26, 2014 11:22 pm
Not even sure why Floyds name is being brought up on this thread, Hopkins or Kovalev also.Posted May 26, 2014 11:05 pm
Nope. Floyd was ready to fight Pac but they came up with to many excuses.Posted May 26, 2014 11:05 pm
Floyd would never have fought manny anyway cause if arum or manny was wearing red undies once or what ever it is this weekPosted May 26, 2014 11:03 pm
unfinished business on page 2Posted May 26, 2014 10:25 pm
Pac went in another direction and fought Bradley. Bowe dumped his belt in the trash. Stevenson has moved up to fight Dawson. So once again stop with the BS. It would of went to purse bid. He already stated he would fight his mandatory and Kovalev chose to fight an easier fighter.Posted May 26, 2014 10:15 pm
Hopkins def was the guy that didn’t want the fight and with good reason, Hopkins at 40 would struggle with kov. And people are saying who has he fought, have a look at mayweathers first 25 fights. All nobody’s accept maybe manfredyPosted May 26, 2014 10:12 pm
PEEJ.., Pacquiao was the mandatory for Floyd… It didn’t go to purse bid.
Lewis was the mandatory for Bowe… It didn’t go to purse bid.
Stevenson was the mandatory for Froch… It didn’t go to purse bid.
So what you said is pure and utter BS… Hopkins would have drawn out the process forever and NEVER would have fought Kovalev anyway — because he didn’t have to.. In Boxing you don’t have to fight anyone you don’t feel like fighting..
Ray Leonard sure as Hell didn’t want to fight the top contenders when he was middleweight champ… There were no purse bids either.Posted May 26, 2014 10:08 pm
Marciano was only 2 and half to 3 inches shorter than Holyfield. Look what Holyfield has done. Marciano was only an inch smaller than Frazier and look what he did in his career. So your theory is completely wrong.Posted May 26, 2014 9:45 pm
Really Hopkins is picking on these fighters? Who in the heck has Kovalev fought? So once again you need to stopPosted May 26, 2014 9:42 pm
Tark once again stop with that. Kovalev was the champion. If Hopkins was not interested in negotiating in good faith there would of been a purse bid and Kovalev would of still got his shot. So Kovalev is the one that took a different route. So again stop with the BS. When you are the mandatory and can’t get a fight then it goes to purse bid.Posted May 26, 2014 9:41 pm
PEEJ.., Kovalev DIDN’T have the option to fight Hopkins. Bernard refused to negotiate in good faith so Kovalev’s people opened up other negotiations… They were getting nowhere with Hopkins, who is the last person in the world who really wanted to fight Kovalev.
Kovalev had the chance to beat an undefeated world Light Heavyweight Champion (Cleverly) who Hopkins didn’t want to fight… Cleverly stopped a terrible fighter who became Hopkins’ mandatory challenger… Hopkins couldn’t stop him.
If fact… Hopkins couldn’t stop anyone in the last 10 years.. He’s picking on the weakest amateurish dogs he can find… like George Foreman fighting “challengers” such as Crawford Grimsley when Lewis, Tyson, Bowe, McCall, Mercer and other heavyweights were calling George out.
Old George didn’t knock any of his weak challengers out either.Posted May 26, 2014 9:29 pm

Groves has Froch’s number. Froch is slow, has poor balance and he is a sucker for the right hand. No question that Froch has a good chin and usually goes through major beatings before his foe gets tired then he capitalizes. . However, I would think that Grove has learned the lesson of not allowing Froch to endure and finish him with continuos rights hands over Froch’s lumbering, slow jab.Posted May 26, 2014 3:53 pm
Mariano was 5′ 10″ 13 stone 2lbs, a very one of the smallest Heavy Weights champs ever.

HH LONDON the same man that said David Hayes would destroy klitchkoPosted May 26, 2014 4:48 am
PEEJ.., “Kovalev should ask for an exception to fight over at Showtime for either 2 of the titles or the championship”
That wouldn’t do any good… These guys are not going to fight him.. They don’t want to get their asses knocked out.. There’s no mechanism in Boxing to make anyone fight anybody he doesn’t want to fight.
If it’s just for the money like Ali finally fought Larry Holmes.. It was the money that made Ali fight.. If he didn’t need it that fight never would have happened.
Ali didn’t fight Holmes while he was champion. He had financial reversals and needed cash… Ray Leonard didn’t want to fight Nunn, McCallum, or Jackson, the top contenders… Ray’s people figured out how to get Ray another title and go around those killers… Pacquiao was the mandatory for Floyd… Floyd doesn’t want to fight Pac and never did.
Patterson pretty much had to fight Liston after avoiding him for 5 years—that’s not true today.. Gogue even picked Cleverly to beat Kovalev.. He’s the only one who picked him… But even Gogue sees Kovalev as the best 175-pounder in the world… Stevenson said he would fight him but that’s a smoke screen … Stevenson doesn’t want to get murdered.
That’s the way the business of Boxing works and it’s a damned shame… The most deserving boxer doesn’t get the shot… The guy who’s BEATABLE gets the shot.Posted May 26, 2014 3:43 am
Kov should move over cause he can beat pretty much the lot at light heavy.Posted May 26, 2014 3:00 am
That is one issue, all the top fighters seem to be moving to Showtime. 3 of the titles are over at Showtime and the championship is over at Showtime. Kovalev should ask for an exception to fight over at Showtime for either 2 of the titles or the championshipPosted May 26, 2014 1:09 am

Funny how Kovalev decided not to fight Hopkins. Hopkins stepped up and Kovalev decided to take the easier fight but all of Kovalev fans say that is ok and now he is being ducked. So it looks like Kovalev took the different rout.Posted May 25, 2014 11:12 pm
