Lol, Hopkins wont be the favorite. The guy is 48 years old and Cloud is a volume puncher. This will look just like Dawson-Hopkins. I'd put Cloud at -250 or higher

I think both guys will be minus money  trout-125, hopkins -115 type of thing, but this is a fight that bernard actually has a chance to win, do not get me wrong I like trout, he is a warroir all the way, but his speed is below average as is his foot speed, bernard will be able to use his ring generalship to dictate the pace of this fight and in reality trout is not fast enough to do anything about it,  hopkins will break his record in this one and get another "title",  what trout needs to do to win is let bernard land one or 2 so he can land one, if he does this he can win it as I no longer belive bernard can take it one the chin,  I think trout will realize this but not until the later rounds when it will probly be too late,  hopkins by razor close decision

This is a pick'em fight, BHop should win easy, as long didn't become a old fighter over night (which is a realistic possibility considering how bad he looked against Dawson). Cloud reminds me of Jeff Lacy, this fight should be good, either Bhop exposes the fraud or Bhop gets retired, its a can't lose for boxing fans.

Hopkins money may come in late. If B-hop gets bumped off-balance, or Cloud even touches the back of his skull, Hopkins may flop to the canvas and collect his purse on a no-decision.
Cloud may indeed be a bigger version of Jeff Lacy, but he may also be the next iron man of boxing.
Like many of you, I am wagering on the former assumption.

No way Bhop loses this....unless he just gets real awful all the sudden

Dawson was soooo wrong for Bhop

This sets up easy
