I know this was overshadowed by the UFC fight card in Montreal..but there were a few people watching it and I caught the first six rounds before heading off to the other bar to watch the GSP fight.
When Hopkins scored an early knockdown, I hoped for the best. But a younger, busier Calzaghe seemed to really be taking the action to the future hall of famer ...
Hopkins strategy of deftly counterpunching the younger, less experienced fighter apparently did not pan out because he lost a decision.
Could this be the end of the line for Hopkins? A truly old school fighter.I have enjoyed watching him over the years. Here's the story, anyways.
