This bout will determine who will face Bernard Hopkins at the finals of the Middleweight Tournament. Felix Trinidad is coming up in weight and will be fighting at 160 pounds for the first time in his career. It is unknown if this jump will effect Trinidad's speed, power and stamina. Joppy is finally getting his big opportunity to display his good combination of power and boxing skill. Trinidad is traditionally a slow starter, so look for Joppy to press the fight in the beginning, but come about round five Trinidad will begin to turn the tide, become more aggressive, and use his superior power and stamina to take out Joppy. 

BoxingGurus.com Prediction:             Trinidad by late round knockout.
