When a megastar champion see greatness in another it's an exciting feeling. Bernard Hopkins is Hall of Fame first ballot all the way, no matter if you like him, or hate him, he's going. Even being a boxer/promoter, Bernard can't help but to see this upcoming fight against Danny 'Swift' Garcia and Lucas 'the Machine' Matthysse as a mirror image to his bout with Felix 'Tito' Trinidad.
"I was booed, and I'm talking America, this guy had one fight at middleweight and i have fought at this weight my whole career and ya'll saying how this guy is going to not only win, but get this walk through me, walk through Bernard Hopkins, so yes I know how Danny and his dad must feel, with everyone saying how Matthysse will just dominate him. All I can say to him, is this, use that fire to motivate you to be even greater than you though you were going to be that day, cause at the end of the day, you don't want to leave everything in the ring that night. You don't want to say oh, I wish I had done this or I wish I had done that."
