It's amazing to think bernard hopkins last fight was in october of 2008.  Beating the rugged enrique ornelas, bernard used counter punching and inside boxing that could've beaten anybody at any weight class.  Now the question is who's next?  Here are three options. 

1. Roy Jones Jr.- It was very suprising to me that bernard hopkins said the offer is still there is roy wants to fight.  Hopkins even went on to say that roy lost standing up and you never know what can happen over seas.  I would the the fight would sell good based on golden boy fighters being on the undercard and two hall of famers rarely dissapoint.  If you can think of an instance where two hall of famers fought and disappointed you please tell me. I'm not exactly sure how much roy has left but I do know he would train hard for a final big pay day.

2. Chad Dawson.- Hbo already has a date reserved for bad chad in april and this would crown the best lightheavyweight in the world, a weight hopkins hasn't had any problems of making.  It would have potential to be a classic.

3. David Haye.- only because he is part-promoted by golden boy and it would be a huge pay day for both. I think this is the least likely because haye is scheduled to face john ruiz next and possibly valuev in a rematch following that.
