    I think Winky will be a tougher fight for Hopkins than Taylor.

    He's packing in the bucks though. Get rich...and then get richer working with Hoya.

    Wow a fight December 3 then Jan 28? That sounds amazing Pan, fighters of his skill or importance don't usually do that, and up and coming fighters usually do that. Hopkins must be hungry.

    Hopkins will lose again to Taylor so he probably wont be fighting Winky

    I don't think Hopkins "lost" to Taylor the 1st time, so I definately don't see Jermaine Taylor winning the rematch. I also don't believe Winky will get past him.

    He can't fade Winky- period.

    know what?? maybe l'm wrong. l once that Shane Mosley was the ish until
    he proved me wrong by letting some one like Vernon Forest beat him 2wice..
    and then Winky put the brakes on him..

    Someone like Vernon Forrest? Vernon Forrest was one of the best welterweights in the world when he beat Shane Mosley. The general public might have been suprised, and not known who he was. However, knowledgable boxing fans knew exactly who he was, and what he was capable of!

    Hopkins will win the rematch...and probably by knock out this time.

    If you look at what's been happening this year, all of the well known fighters OF AGE have lost. Although, I do believe Hopkins should have retained his belts by a draw. :D

    Oh yeah...by the way

    Vernon Forrest is no slouch. The brotha is quick and has skills. Watch his next fight...whoever and whenever he fights.

    I think the only way for B-hop to beat Jermaine is if he fights 12 rounds or knocks him out..Hop waited way to long to get on old boy but Hop didn't lose that fight at worst it should have been a draw and at best a small margin for Hop and that's only because he wasn't busy during the first half of the fight..If Jermaine comes in with better conditioning and can go all 12 then Hop may have some problems but I think Hop will win the rematch....Wink on the other hand is a whole different story. I don't think Hop can beat Wink and it's almost funny how a fight between them will be mainly a true boxing fan's fight...part time fans will consider it a boring fight because they fight a lot alike..no wasted motion, good counter punchers, good defense...I can't wait but if I was Bernard there's no way I'd get in the ring with Winky ...

    on a side note in his time Vernon Forrest was a man....not a punk at all....
