I'm taking Krusher via KO/TKO/DQ.  His pace will be too much, and Bernard's body won't hold up to the punishment.  Possible this ends in similar fashion to the first Dawson fight.

I'm tempted to say Kovalev easy, but Hops is an alien apparently or is at least taking alien piss, or something else. I'll take Kovalev in a less than dominating but clear decision.

I am taking Hopkins by decision, Hopkins will be able to take Kovalevs best punch and that will discourage Kovalev, also Bernanrd will frustrate Kovalev and throw him off his game plan if he even has one other than hit him hard and hope he falls.
I also believe that Bernard will want to drag this fight on by not being so active early on, and then turning it on by the 6th round

Hop will neutralize and frustrate kobalev to an ugly decision.

Serge looks like one of those guys who looks like a world beater against certain opposition and quickly turns to crap when he steps it up. Kind of like Ismayl sillakh.

Haven't seen enough of kovalev to say different. Only last few fights. And the dude looks physically old already. Kind of like pavlik like with the muscle no longer keeping pace. Kovalev can do it. But I think hops is in his head.

Dawson did it already. The first time looked like he might stop Bernard. So hope fouled out. Made it to the final bell in the rematch that he lost.

Krusher doesn't seem to have any special quality. And Bernards PED regimen should see him through this one.

Hopkins by decision. Kov winds up like all the other heavy punchers that Bernard has faced.
