Peak Hopkins (Pre-Tito) vs the Hearns of the Hagler/Shuler fights?
Gimme Bernard, all the way.
Bernard Hopkins is still grossly underrated. He's a top ten all time talent. I can't think of a SMARTER fighter in that ring.
People say Hearns had it all except a rock solid jaw. Well i also question Hearns' stamina (Hagler fight).
Bernard, however had it all except one punch power and blazing handspeed...but his speed and power are still decent enough.
Bernard by KO.
Hearns does not enjoy a height advantage in this one, cannot outsmart Hopkins, gets roughed up, outhustled and outlasted.
