Looks like this just may happen so long as Jones get's past Green in December (he should have no problem with that), and neither of them get injured along the way. Jones has looked good in his last few outings against lesser opponents, but I think he'll have his hands full with Hopkins. My gut tells me Hopkins pulls off the win with a UD and this won't be a very entertaining fight. I'm pulling for Roy, but I think Bernard is the stronger of the two at light heavy. But still, it's good to see them finally do this, even if they are both past their primes.

YES! I hope Roy is the victor. Although Bernard is built like a tank .

I agree w/the majority on this one: way too late, similar to Leonard/Hearns 2. The first fight was relatively boring, a technical boxing match where both men were reluctant to take chances. I don't see that changing this time around.
