Yes clearly he's dirty, obviously its the root of his success and has nothing to do with guile, skill and being at top for 20 years. The fuck. I can watch any random joe 6 pack over 10 rounds and find something borderline if not "dirty" . Every weekend. Watch him introduced 50+ times in the ring and we'll be convinced he is the second coming of Fritzie Zivic or Golota themselves.
Hopkins is a very dirty fighter, against Calzaghe he was hold and hitting, head butting and
guess what he never gets a warning,! the referees are in love with him.
It may upset people but he should have been disqualified, on many occasions a dirty git
he wins ugly.
I can never say I enjoy watching any fight he's been in win lose or draw, some people
my think he's the dogs, but to me just terrible.
I completely agree! Bernard is a cheat. I don't know why people love him and praise him. I think it's because aging boxing fans want to feel like they aren't old and useless so they cling to this idea that Bernard is a clean, quality, "old school" boxer... When he's really a dirty cheating scum bag.
He even withheld money from his longtime trainer and senior citizen Bouie Fisher.
Watch this pathetic display by Hopkins. He wrestles, leads with the head, spins the opponent, throws hip punches, nut punches, charges and tackles, rabbit punches, etc...
What a piece of shit! And that embarrassment of a ref!

All great champions bend the rules Hopkins is no different.

Yes, in the sense that he will fudge or push the line as far as he is allowed to. If he has the right referee in there with him (Steve Smogger is a prime example), it can get ridiculous and have me thinking real bad thoughts about both of them.
Imagine fighting with detached thumbs and 4 oz or 6 oz gloves packed with straw against guys like Elbows Mcfadden
Speaking of elbows, one of my favourite fighters Winky Wright has one of the best follow through elbows off a hook that I have ever seen.
You put it in to context you get away with it,! you carry on bending the rules lets be blunt
he is shit to watch, a typical round two and a half minutes of holding and hitting, and bitching
to the ref, and may be a few punches just for luck,.
Truly not a feast for the eyes, he wins yes a Marmite fighter you love or hate him.
Sure I can @Master. I'm applying all my life's experience and the old addage that if it smells like shit and looks like shit and tastes like shit then it's...?
Well that is a true statement. We can go all the way back to the turn of the 20th century to the present. I think Ali, Marciano, Holyfield and Wlad are all/were all dirtier then Hopkins.
In addition Hopkins longevity is not evidence of roid use. Its evidence of smarts. The guy has not stopped a fighter in 10 years.
