Bernard Hopkins of Golden Boy says the rematch between Saul Canelo Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will be a “reincarnation of the Andre “SOG” Ward vs. Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev fight. Canelo will be Ward, and Golovkin will be Kovalev, says Hopkins.

Bernard Hopkins of Golden Boy says the rematch between Saul Canelo Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will be a “reincarnation of the Andre “SOG” Ward vs. Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev fight. Canelo will be Ward, and Golovkin will be Kovalev, says Hopkins.

Hopkins says Canelo (49-1-2, 34 KOs) will learn from the first fight against Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs), and he’ll use what he learned to expose him as not being the “boogeyman” that everyone fears.
Canelo didn’t look so great in fighting to a 12-round draw against Golovkin on September 16 in a fight televised on HBO pay-per-view at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hopkins-Smith: A Punch is Just a Fast Push or Shove

Maybe Bernard "The Executioner/Alien" Hopkins (58-8-2, 32 KOs) was right when he said Joe "The Beast" Smith Jr. (23-1-0, 19 KOs) pushed him out of the ring at The Forum, Inglewood, CA.  After all a punch is just a push with speed.  To be more exact, its speed and a clenched fist that changes the prod into a strike or blow.  It was several of those that propelled Hopkins head first through the ropes on to the concrete floor below.  The coalition of those blows brought about the unthinkable…..a stoppage of the wily old predator, who even at age 51 was still the favorite.
