    It was a better matchup on paper than what truly happened on Saturday night. It might reflect how done was Hopkins when Smith fought him and how the latter is since overrated. On the other hand, I feel Barrera is a real LHW top 10. I would love to see him fight Kovalev before the end of the year.
