This morning on Jim Rome's radio show The Jungle, Rome interviewed B-Hop about his fight coming up with Winky Wright.
Hopkins was asked if he had any respect for MMA fighters and how he would do if he got in to the cage.
He first got off sounding like your usual boxing elitist asshole by saying (and i'm paraphrasing):
"Boxing is an art and takes skill, MMA is two guys rolling around elbowing each other in the face, guys like Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard would say the same thing. I got respect for them cause their crazy, but guys in Philly fight like that on the streets all the time. Maybe i'm hating, but its just not on the same level as boxing"
Then Jim jumped in to ask him another question and B-Hop said "Hold on Jim, I didn't answer your question about how I would do against them!"
This is where I started felling sick cause i have always been a B-Hop fan, and i was mentally preparing myself for the BS he was going to spew.
B-Hop says (again paraphrasing): "THEY"D WHOOP MY ASS! ALL OF EM', THERE WORST GUY WOULD WHOOP MY ASS! Don't get me wrong, I would try, but i haven't fought like that since prison and when I was a kid."
Props to Hopkins for keeping it real.
