The big fight, Generation X's Hagler v Leonard, is now just hours away from happening at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Emotion dripped off the chiselled features of both defending middleweight kingpin Bernard Hopkins and challenger Oscar De La Hoya at Wednesday's press conference; we're all set for what could be an all-time classic encounter of what Jack Broughton called in a 1847 London newspaper ad 'the mystery of boxing'.
For Hopkins, this fight is the vindication and validation of his 'my way or no way' career path, the climax of 15 years plus of bunking the system. For De La Hoya it is a leap into the unknown, his last, best chance of finally erasing the one or two blemishes on his golden record and the prove himself - beyond all doubt - one of the finest fighters of this era.
