You should read some of my other posts Walrus
You may learn something
Rather that banging on all the time about this toothless old fossil that means so much to you
I was of course referring to Bernard Hopkins in that statement
Not your Mom

But you know what
It’s like shooting fish in a barrel you seem so mentally slow its embarrassing

Also I don’t like your fake hard man act where you tell posters your coming after them, what your going to do to them etc . . .

Now you go enjoy your Popkins fight
I would rather watch a true boxing warrior fight this weekend PACMAN

Bernard is a long term fighter. Ok fine, but is he great ? No maybe close to the top 30 of all time but that’s it.

Not true, hopkins fought beautifully against tarver, trinidad, pavlik he showed a lot of heart against pascal and mecado

Hopkins never had the super fight, that great fight. When Hopkins is engaged in a aggressive fight he neutralizes it by holding and fighting dirty. Hopkins is overrated even when he was young. Roy Jones 1 with one arm behind his back can still beat Hopkins in that first fight.

He looks great in front of cameras, with the belt around him and his boasts about being at the top at age, whatever his age is, I think 50… But the truth of the matter is that he whines too much especially whenever his opponents do to him what he has resorted doing to his them over th past few years…He grabs, holds and Grapples his opponents…. Hopkins, you were GREAT at one time, but now, you’re not ,, you’re now old, very old… I was, at one time, a GREAT fan but that was when you were in your prime… AND, I still sing your praises by the way you school’d Pavlik and Trinidaad back when you were unstoppable but then Dawson emerged and school’d you GIVE IT UP CHAMP , what you’re doing to the sport is simply disrespectful .. you’re partners with Delahoya, “Sugar”Shane Mosely and Ricky Hatton with Golden Boy Promotions and The RING Magazine so, you really don’t have to fight anymore and you know it ..as well as I do … Boxingdictionary.com …”The Langaug of the Ring & The Original Sweet Science Dictionary “

Just because Hopkins is from the streets doesn’t make him a bad person the has stayed clean since he got out and I thank that makes him a great role model for kids in a bad position that they can accomplish anything. Hopkins isnt acting hes from the sreets

So sick of the calzaghe white boy comment. Joe is white when white people complain about stuff like that I realy think it makes them sound racist. Maybe things are just different here in the states but that comment realy isn’t that bad.

Swedish Boxing Fan – On here in the past Hopkins has snubbed his own fans off. He made MMA G – word comments then when his back was against the wall he apologized. If people think the Calzaghe ” White Boy ” comment was his first guess again. Around the boxing community he has made racist remarks against whites. It seems to me even after leaving prison Hopkins acts like he is in prison. Chad Dawson has said repeatly about Hopkin head ramming. The way Hopkins acts and please watch the youtube video he acts like a street thug. Nice role model. A great champion to have in boxing for others to look up after. amazing !

Hmm well if it is true or not with that he don’t tip waitresses on Restaurants or Dinners or not I can’t comment on but if it is true, yes I would feel that that is not a positive act as he could/should leave some tip to the ladies if they serve him well and we all know that most of them sadly work hard shifts but earns a poor salary.

I have never supported rich greed either as it is so disgusting in the big business world – However I can in a way understand an athlete to be smart/concern about his economic future after boxing as I know Bernard Hopkins are.
He was born in a poor family and neighbourhood filled with crime and tragedy and yes, Hopkins had his stupid and very bad acts in his young years and had to pay for his acts by been sent to prison to serve time and he did it.
After his jail time, Hopkins had learned 1 thing – I never going back to jail. So Hopkins used his boxing nature he had picked up in prison and then decided to turn professional and he stopped all his crime acts and the rest is history to never be repeated again.
He have paid his guilt and price to the states and those criminal acts are in his past since long time back and can’t be used to trash talk him nowadays as that is non relevant.

He don’t take money for granted as he have earned his money from being the ring for 20 years and earned them with blood, sweat and tears and few boxers have been so disciplined with there boxing training and career handling as Hopkins is.
He did not get anything for free in most of his long career. Took him long time to reach the bigger fight earnings unlike Oscar De La Hoya, Mike Tyson, Sugar ray Leonard etc..

Not the perfect role model maybe but as a fighter he is one of the most skilled boxers ever been in the game of PRO boxing and his record and titles says it all.

Roy and hopkins are rivals and im sure Jones would admit bernard is a great fighter and a legend and im sure he would give him props for competing at his age.

Walrus i guess Roy Jones is a liar for saying over and over Hopkins is the dirtiest fighter in the sport

Hopkins earned his money and he can do what he wants with it maybe he just doesn’t want to end up broke like very other fighter who made millions.

Hopkins is no cheater I’ve watched this man fight his whole career you cant accomplish what he has by cheating.how many fighters make excuses after they lose a fight it’s nothing new. Besides thats why we have a ref. Hopkins worked hard hes a smart fighter and thats the only way to accomplish what he has.

Posted April 11, 2014 1:11 pm

Walrus lets say you where a fighter and you fought Hopkins. You get head butts that later effects your memory like Dawson has said and Winky. You get low blowed and you want to fight but Hopkins continues to clinch you. How would you feel about him if this happened like other fighters that fought him ?

Hopkins penny pinching is legendary within the fight game
Blame it on his upbringing whatever but he is supposed to be one of the meanest fighters in the business

You’ll never see him giving out turkey’s during thanks giving like Tyson

He gets seriously nasty

Swedish Boxing Fan you say Hopkins is not as greedy as Floyd. Boy are you wrong. There was a story a while back that Hopkins doesnt even tip waiters no matter how good there performance is. Hopkins is the greediest sports figure in the sport. He tried to rip off Dibella and was thrown out of the courts. On top of all this he is a dirty fighter

DMX – I don’t thing I understand your logic on Bernard Hopkins.

How can he fight for “chump change” from Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotion? Last time I checked millions of dollars are a LOT of money and in my oppinion he earns great money as an athlete BUT I dont like talking about sports and athletes earnings as my oppinion is that ro many athletes earns to much millions.
At least Hopkins is not as greedy as “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather Jr, David Haye or Andre Ward who all three onjy fights for the money these days and not for there legacy and achivments like Hopkins still hungers for.

Mention it now, Hopkins fought for many years as middleweight world champion and was less paid then almost all boxing super stars in the 90’s and early 2000 (Ex, Mike Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya, Roy Jones jr, Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, Lennox Lewis, Tito Trinidad etc) and still did he let his fists make the complainment. unlike winer “Greedy Boy” Mayweather Jr did almost at once as he turned pro.

Like him or not but Bernard Hopkins is a skilled fighter with heart and hunger far better then the majority of younger fighters out there.

Walrus is from the U.S.A – Gonzo the Dragonborn is from England and I’m from Sweden and we are all three apperently active boxers. So that is nice!

But I prefer to use diplomatic and reason before I use my fists and gloves in the ring. A boxing match is a boxing match and not supposted to be killing one another.

I don’t particularly like the guys style these days, or his time wasting/cheating tactics, but hell do I admire a 49 year old guy doing everything he can to compete at or near the top of the tree with guys half his age. Whether it’s a boring fight or not, if Hopkins manages to unify, hats off to him.

Posted April 10, 2014 8:34 pm 


Swedish Boxing Fan

I agree with the legend and 4-time boxing world champion Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins.

Fighters should ALWAYS aim to unify the world title belts and those titles are as always the 4 major belts WBC/WBA/IBF/WBO and the Ring-Lineal world titles.
Since the 80′s, fighters had to go for unifying the championship belts. Mike Tyson in heavyweight, Michael Spinks in light heavyweight, Evander Holyfield in cruiserweight, Roy Jones Jr in Light heavyweight, Bernard Hopkins in middleweight, Lennox Lewis in heavyweight, Joe Calzaghe in super middleweight, O’Neil Bell in cruiserweight and Wladimir Klitschko in heavyweight are all fighters who not only fought top opponents to defend one belt but they all was hungry to take all major world title belts to become the ONLY champ in there respective weight class.

You can debate on the quality of the opponents but if the champ has all titles, he will almost only fight the mandatory Nr1# and 2# opponents and no cheap cherry picking is possible if the champ wants to be the one and only recognised undisputed world champion.
If a fighter can’t clean out the division of champion “pretenders” you will never-ever become the undisputed world champion in any weight division.

Bernard Hopkins unified all world title belts in the middleweight division and defended his world middleweight crown impossible 20-times. Still he is the only fighter to date to have conquered all 4 major world titles and the Ring title and have them all at same time + defend all titles in a fight in any weight class.

I’m glad that old time legend and IBF world light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins is fighting WBA/IBA world champion Beibut Shumenov in a world title unification. So something there in the division is happening in the quest for unifying the world title belts.

Some people call it the “3rd vs. the 4th best” in the league of light heavyweight boxers BUT in any way, its a right direction to be made in the division.

The winner will be the unified IBF/WBA/IBA world light heavyweight champion and then only Adonis Stevenson’s Lineal/WBC crown and Sergey Kovalev’s WBO world title is left to conquer in order for a fighter to become the final unified and undisputed light heavyweight champion of the world.
Something that haven’t been in the division since 2003.

The WBO world light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev is not as skilled as Lineal/WBC world champion Adonis Stevenson BUT Kovalev haves more pure power and I believe he has more courage in the ring as well as I feel he can go threw the tougher time then Stevenson.

Still Adonis Stevenson is a better athlete and his skills and better speed I believe is what makes him the better bet in a fight with Stevenson vs. Kovalev and I will go for betting on Stevenson.

Just sad that Stevenson doesn’t seem to want to tight Kovalev in a near future so that is a loss for the boxing world when that would be one of the best fights to be made.
