How fat is Hipps?  Someone post his dimensions, please?  Or just big?
Surely no fatter than that 320 lb. heavyweight (what's his name) who
fought both Shannon Briggs and Jeremy Williams?  When's the last time you
saw someone that big or fat doing well?  

Incidentally does anyone remember how big Primo Carnera was?  How about
Buster Mathis, Joe Bugner, Jean Koopman, Mark Gastineau (6-5/240), Gerry
Cooney (6-7/240).  You would think that the fast pace of boxing and the
conditioning required would phase out most jumbo heavyweights.  Think
again.

I think Joe Hipp would look overweight even if he were in shape because
of the way he's built.

I don't know if it's completely fair to label him a "white hope" since
he is, at least in part, a Native American.
