Bernard Hopkins: I'd travel by boat to fight Carl Froch

ESPN star




Bernard Hopkins doesn't think Carl Froch v Mikkel Kessler will even be close this weekend

Bernard Hopkins has backed Carl Froch to beat Mikkel Kessler this weekend and stated his desire to put on "one of the biggest press conferences in boxing".

Hopkins, the sport's oldest world champion at the age of 48, has his own affairs to get in order when he takes on mandatory IBF light-heavyweight challenger Karo Murat on July 13.

Once he gets through that bout the American wants Froch, who he sees as favourite for Saturday's showdown with Kessler for the IBF and WBA super-middleweight championships.

Hopkins wants this Froch fight... worse case scenario for Froch I think.  I think Hopkins still has enough to expose Froch.

Awful fight - Hopkins just mauls Froch on the inside all day long. Still reckon Froch beats this version of Hopkins though

If I was Froch I would stay away from this fight, it has the potential to have a very negative impact on his career, if he did get exposed then it's something that would stick out like sore dick when people look back. If I was Froch I'd let someone else who hasn't got that many options take on Hopkins, someone like... erm Ward.  Let him take the risk of being involved in a piss poor fight against a 50 year old.
