BERNARD HOPKINS.

Byline: OLIVER HOLT

BERNARD HOPKINS is a master at making good fighters look bad so I'm not expecting a classic when he and Joe Calzaghe enter the ring in Las Vegas in the early hours of Sunday morning.

I sense a nervousness in Calzaghe, too, that makes me worry for him a little as he tries to come to terms with fighting in the States for the first time.

Calzaghe's toughest opponent this weekend will be the loss of routine and familiar surroundings but Hopkins is 43 and a fading force so I'm still picking the Welshman to win on points.
