Why? No interest in either fight.

I could care less if Hopkins or Winky ever fight again. they are both boring as hell to watch.
I would like to see Calzaghe pick them both apart and finish them off finally.
I guess he could beat one of them up while Pavlik is off fighting JT again and possibly setting up that showdown at the end of 2008.

Thing is, Calzaghe is saying he's got 2 maybe three more fights in him and that he has no interest fighting as he approaches 40. He's 35 right now. Lampley said a couple times last night, "2 maybe 3 more fights is what hes saying".

IMO, he will fight Hopkins here in America in the spring. They'll be able to charge $49.99 for it and sell enough PPVs for these guys both to make a mint. Calzaghe has been leery to fight in the US because he can draw 50-60k a fight across the pond. I think he can now do it here with a name like Hopkins.

After Calzaghe takes apart Hopkins, I think you're right Spoon ... at that point he'll be ready for Pavlik after he beats Taylor again.

What a fight that would be. Good god.

Why no outcry for a rematch with Kessler? That seems to be the logical choice IMO.

Watching Hopkins is akin to watching paint dry. He's only interesting when he's throwing low blows or punching in a clinch or behind the head. The only Top 10 list that he belongs on is the one for the dirtiest fighters of all time.
