Damn! Did anyone else watch that? I've been a fan of Hopkins for a very long time. At one time, the guy was almost unstoppable.
I kind of new this wasn't the brightest idea Hopkins has had, but I didn't expect this. Joe Smith, is a nobody fighter. Everyone was expecting Apollo Creed to Knock Rocky's ass out. It did not go that way, at all.
This is your proof that, sometimes folks need to learn when to walk away. This fight shouldn't have happened.

Yeah, Smith earned himself a historic highlight clip. That will be in all the brutal knockout videos, and best ofs.
I don't think I've ever seen Hopkins get hit like that. He's a slick ass, defensive mastermind. He stepped right in to those. Well, amd Smith had the right angle on him. I have to give him mad props, even if I don't want to. Dude just knocked one of the best of all time through the ropes, off of the ring, to the back of his head.
I'm very curious to see who they put Smith in the ring with next. He could make a killing fighting old legends, who are on there way out. It would be a crowd draw no doubt. Especially if they give him another next, and he does the same. He could fight for 10 more years doing that alone. I have a couple of ideas for fights, but we'll see.
What? Mayweather is old now. He could put on a little weight. And this won't make him mad. He can't read it anyways.
