Hopkins also said he'll never let a white boy beat him... Damn racists..
Hopkins vs. Calzaghe for Super Middleweight, Saturday, April 12. I am looking forward to it.
Anyone else ?
Calzaghe has incredible hand speed and throws lots of punches. One way to look at that is it is an advantage. Another way to look at that is, it leaves him open for counterpunches. I am really looking forward to the fight. It was stupid for Hopkins to say "I would never let a white boy beat me !" to Calzaghe. Why bring race into it ? Some of the greatest fighters were and are white (Marciano, Stribling, etc.) and some of them today are not all that bad. I personally want to see Calzaghe beat Hopkins, because I think Calzaghe is cooler and Hopkins kind of showed himself to be a jerk with comments like that.
Calzaghe is also I think 26-0-0 as a pro. Hopkins has lost 4 times. But of course, Calzaghe is from Europe, so Hopkins says he is not that good.
