Taylor-Hopkins II

If Bernard comes out quick I think Jermain will knock him out. A slow start by Bernard will likely result in a decision for JT.

I know JT and so I am certainly biased, but I think he has what it takes to handle this fight.

I do too. But, anything can happen. I've been looking forward to this since chapter 1.

I think if JT comes out too quick (just like last fight)...this time Benard knocks him out instead of simply whooping him for the final 5 rounds.
I too might be a little biased but for the other side Doug.

Well the pre fight press conference went as expected. Bernard being Bernard, basically a lack of class, insinuating that Jermain was going to be killed literally in the ring. What an ass.

Is this the same press conference that Taylor brought a doll to and called the former undefeated champ a crybaby? ...not much class there either
Pre-fight press conferences are full of no class bull shit...but this fight should be a real good one this Saturday.

I still refuse to pay for fights anymore...so I'll see the highlights and wait for the fight to be aired on HBO.

Yea thats the same Mike. Making fun seems ok to me and hell he has been whining and crying. Telling someone to kiss their wife and child goodbye insinuating they will be killed is something else in my book. I am not asking you to defend him, merely making an observation.

I'm not sure how entertaining this fight will be. Bernard is pretty boring to watch no matter who he fights. Even still, I'll be ringside.

I hope Taylor can win again. I'd love to see him move up and fight Jeff Lacey afterwards.

What's the word Zebo? I know Taylor won, but didn't see it.

The word was a more even fight but a unanimous decision all judges had the same scores I believe it was 118-115 or such.
