JUST got back from Las Vegas.
I went to the WBO convention and while I was there I met up with Joe Calzaghe, who was being inducted into the Hall of Fame with Oscar De La Hoya. I watched Joe on the awards night and he was being pulled from pillar to post, every one wanting at picture or a few words from him. He is still a very popular person, even over in the USA. I must say I can understand when the celebrities let their persona slip and get annoyed occasionally, sometimes the occasion is so overwhelming with the media, the public, and everyone else wanting a piece of them, suffice to say I don’t have that problem.
I would have liked to be in Atlantic City on Saturday for the BERNARD HOPKINS versus SERGEY KOVALEV fight which is for a hat full of light-heavyweight world titles. I feel that Kovalev will be just too powerful for Bernard and a stoppage win looks on the cards for me. A Bernard Hopkins in his prime would be a different story, but you can’t keep beat old Father Time.
