Here we go again. I love this shit! Hopkins vs. Taylor; the fight of the year. Mayweather vs. Gatti was the ass whopping of the year. Saturday expect a display of boxing skill that can be appreciated by every fan. This fight is going to be a great challenge for both opponents. I am going to go out on a lim and say that Taylor will upset Hopkins. No doubt that Hopkins is a master of ceramony and talks the talk and walks the walk. The fight will be won by whom ever fight is being fought in the ring. Taylor could only win by a knock-out, which he know because if the fight goes to the scorecards, Hopkins who is a master in technical/skill boxing, will win. Taylor is younger, stronger, and quicker then Hopkins, but Hopkins is a master of cermaony. He has experience and alot of intelligence. For Taylor to win he must win the first 3 rounds in the scorecards. That way the fight that will be fought in the later rounds is Taylors not Hopkins. He also must not get intimidated. I saw his last fight which he fought in the undercard of Bernard Hopkins and he was all up on Hopkins dick saying " Hopkins is the professor and that he was going to watch Hopkins fight and take notes." He was hangin off his nut sack: litterally. So Taylor's Trainer must train his mind as well as his physical condition. This fight is a mind/strategy fight that will be fought on Saturday. I predict an upset, Taylor winning. I truely believe this fight will be AMAZING!

yeah i think this is going to be the fight of the year, after all, two great boxers in the MW category are going to battle it out to the fullest,

i think hopkins gotta be at his best to do what he does best, and that is to win, im going for a hopkins win on points...

taylor is great for sure, but i think hopkins experience and honour is going to do it..

peace

I think this fight Taylor is going to show everyone that he's that new cat coming up. I say Taylor by points or a late round knockout.

If Taylor wants to win this fight, he can't let Hopkins get in his head. Hopkins will just use his patience and talent to take down Taylor. Alot of fighters don't find out Hopkins style and how to fight him until it's too late, but i think Taylor is the guy to do it. Watch out for that jab!

All you motherfuckers that said Hopkins was going to win this fight easily need to sit down. I called it, Jermaine Taylor is the new champ, split decision down to the scorecard.

Hopkins gave him that fight, from the 8th on Hopkins clearly won the match. He just had a fuck up stragety thats all and it didnt work for him. He will win the rematch

It's good to see a new champion anyway Hopkins waited to long to fight he gave him the early rounds then played catch up. 1 more rounds hopkins wins by knock out
it was a good fight overall

Princerai, I scored the bout 115-112. Dog Taylor out boxed him but ran out of gas and started looking like a bitch. But Hopkins knows the game and did not perform to win the fight. You cant win a fight by winning 5 rounds. He was such a sore loser. LOL bro Taylor gained so much respect. Hopkins talking all that shit to the young brother, then losing. In the rematch I still think Taylor will win because he has gained a wealth of experience! Hopkins did not go out with class.

man it was to close because i didnt see taylor really hurt hopkins with any clear and hard shots. although he was the more agressive for about 7 rounds. he dies out at the end and was shook espiecially in round 10. i wouldnt disagree with the decision but i wouldnt call it a clear win. maybe a draw even. rematch

After taylor's last fight, I said "thats who needs to fight Hopkins". I like both guys so I have no bias. I kinda felt like Taylor would win, I was leaning that way, but I thought it would be close.

I gotta say, I was a little surprised. He usually just lays back the first 4 rounds, and then starts doing his thing, saving his energy for the middle to late rounds. Thats what he was doing, but I think he didn't expect taylor to have so much energy. Hopkins lost rounds 6,7, and 8, I'm sure he didn't count on that. He dominated from 8 on. Even the early rounds that he lost, it was really only due to Taylor being more aggressive cuz he wasn't landing a lot of punches either.

Even though I was saying that this was gonna be hopkins hardest test, I was disappointed with Taylor. He's young, fast, and has powerful, but he looked kinda sloppy as far as boxing skills go. All those over the head power punches were sloppy. I think hopkins showed he was the better and smarter boxer, he just waited to long to show that.

i must agree bro, yo taylor did his best, i think hopkins in the end was like "waa... yo im losingg!!" and then tried harder, but rematch should be harder for taylor, considering hopkins wanted to retire champ....

we shall c!!!!
cnt wait 4 anything from these 2 now!

Scary outcome for me.

1 - Hopkins losing a rematch = another fuckin good fighter gonna retire.

2 - Taylor was not even close to his best. Lot of talent that never came out, lotta potential for future n he still won it. Taylor gonna be deadly in a few years.

The hing I been hinkin about is, was the result good for boxing? Fuck aye. A 40 year old champ dominating the division is embarrasing for the 4 organisations. As good as Hopkins is, it tells you sumtin about the rest. I called the fight Taylor by 3 rounds. But Hopkins possibly taking a 10-8 in 1 of the later. Had it been a draw it be fair in my eyes coz Ima believer in that to take a champs belt you gotta do it with conviction. But no way the boards were gonna give it to Hopkins on a close 1.

Still be sad to see Hopkins retire. But I hink the division needed a new champ to spark some appetite.

anyone have anything to say about the one judge who gave the 12th round to taylor?! that's fuckin ridiculous, everybody knows the end of the fight was all hopkin's right hand backing up the kid. if that one scorecard wasn't so fuct/rigged, the fight would be a draw. hopkins didn't do enough to win, but taylor did NOT do enough to take his belts. should have been a draw.

Taylor's eye was cut on a headbutt in the 5th round, so they gave him a short suspension meaning that if theirs a rematch it won't be until December.

I think Hopkin's tried appealing the decision, but it failed.
