Fortunately for Hopkins, you can be a drug cheat in the USA if you are black and nobody cares.

Peterson, Holyfield, Jones Jnr, Toney, Tarver, MOsely, Berto, noone really gives a s h i t.

Whitey Armstrong though – he is public enemy no 1.

Shumenov on the other hand only takes natural stuff. Due to his Mongolian heritage he loves to lick the sweat off of horses balls after they`ve had a good gallop.

It`s full of horse vitamins.

It`s fairly well known Hopkins is a drug cheat, he takes EPO. My friend has been delivering CERA to his gym for the past 6 years and showed him how to inject.

He doesn`t even pay full price for it, he is such a cheap c u n t.

BHop sucks,fairv play to him for having the immense discipline to stay in shape,but he’s still artful and awful simultaneously,crafty and crap he is a boxing paradox,sublime skills combined with the dirtiest moves ever employed in a ring,third is what makes Bernard difficult to place as an ATG,he is a wiley Fox that you want tov shoot

@dantheman “Boxers chose to perform and entertain the crowd”
haha when and under what rock did you crawl out from? sure that’s what the promotors and broadcasters want you to think, but what is the number one goal all boxer’s have when they step into the ring? Simple. He wants to win. And will do anything in his power to do so.

And Dan the Man, Hopkins imposes that/his style of his opponents. It’s B-Hop’s opponents who need to impose THEIR style on him! But very few ever do, or at least not for very long — that’s THEIR fault/problem. Oh, and trust me — I’m older than B-hop, and an athlete, and it DOES take conditioning, a TREMENDOUS amount, to compete with the young lions when you are nearing 50-years old.

Posted April 19, 2014 2:07 pm 


Dan the Man

Joker as the name implies. Boxers chose to perform and entertain the crowd. Hopkins doesn’t he takes the easy way out. HAVE U WATCHED ANY OF HIS FIGHTS ??? He clinches in about 65 perfent of each round then walks around does a amateur flurry of non power shots for the ringside announcers to say woooooo whhhhhhhaaaaa look at the 49 yr old wow. Big Deal ! It has nothing to do with being in shape it has everything to do with his style of fighting

@Gus what a miserable human being. If it was so easy, everyone would be doing it. Or are you trying to say other boxers are taking the high road by not employing such tactics? I’ve got news for you buddy boxers are only in there to win – not much else.

Posted April 19, 2014 11:54 am

Why is anyone surprised that Hopkins is still doing HIS thing at 49 ? He has a talent for winning fights by running around the ring, jumping in for a quick flurry, clinching, butting, charging in head first, and stealing rounds by flurring the last ten seconds. He is a racist, self centered, and certainly not a credit to Boxing.

I hope that it’s not the same limited Shumenov who fought campillo. I hope he picked some skills in the last 5 years since he fought campillo. Other than that he does not seem scared of Hopkins at all.

Hope Shumenov can shut this guy up. How do you compete at 49? Is the opposition really poor is is Bhop on juice. He fights only 45 secs per round and somehow manages to beat so called world class fighters half his age. Something does not ad up.

Posted April 19, 2014 8:35 am

I also suspect that he is on PED’s. Still fighting at 49? If it seems too good to be true, it usually is. I’m hoping for a Shumenov upset or for Stevenson to put this old dog down for good.

Posted April 19, 2014 7:21 am

Bernard Hopkins has mastered the art of prizefighting without actually fighting. He’ll feint, feint, feint, feint, throw a lead right, followed by an “unintentional” headbutt, clinch, then punch on the belt line, thighs, and buttocks, and then do the feinting thing all over again. He’ll also sprinkle in a flurry once every 3 rounds. It’s awful to watch. Someone please knock him the fk out so I don’t watch his horribly boring fight style.

Swedish Boxing Fan

Bernard Hopkins is just not a fighter with many weaknes as a boxer accept his natural aging but still Hopkins is on top in the game even at 49 and still champ.
He is a great student of the old-school boxing skills and can fight the majority of styles. No one have ever masterd him in the ring. 6 losses in his career BUT only 2 of them are real losses and those are 1993-Roy Jones Jr = UD loss and 2012 = MD loss.

They won these contests, yes but non of them masterd him or put a hurting note on Hopkins. Hopkins losses to Jermain Taylor I & II and Joe Calzaghe are disputed losses and are still up tp debate.

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.

Shumenov got destroyed by Campillo,and then Campillo got destroyed by the judges.

Biggest robbery in a decision I have ever seen.

Hopkins started slow against Marat.

Shumenov is a very fast starter, and a hard puncher.

Campillo showed that Shumenov is way less effective if you can move him back and throw combos on him.

Hopkins is going to try that same strategy.

He will have to be careful because Shumenov is a dangerous puncher.

Will not be easy for the Alien…

Posted April 19, 2014 2:07 am 


TARK

Nobody KO’d Bradley… Nobody KO’d Rios… Nobody KO’d Marquez… Pac holds 5 victories over these guys and nobody else does.

Knocking a fighter because he doesn’t KO a super tough opponent doesn’t make any sense.. The thing to do is to win.. He won about his 10th world title v Bradley and made 20 million.. How are you doing on your job??? Do you also hold down a congressional seat in your district???

Use a little perspective.

Pacquiao beat bradley, but didn’t score a KO, his PPV numbers are low and almost everyone wants him to retire… Why not let hopkins retire coz he’s too old, boring, can’t KO and doesn’t fight on PPV.

TecateisBoxing

IMO The reason why people are accusing Bernard of PED’s is plain simple. Bernard cheats in the ring why would he not cheat OUTSIDE of it?

That fake injury when he fought Roy Jones the second time was ridiculous at best….Also the Chad Dawson fight was stupid!

That is NOT Boxing!

Anthony Medane

Hopkins is a throw back as he says Old School. I do recall in that time not all fighters where dirty and dangerous as Hopkins. Most were good clean fighters. Just watch the old fights. It comes down to the individual. Hopkins is a street thug from Philly. A convicted con artist and racist. He doesn’t even tip waiters. He is cheap and anything he does do charity is for tax purposes. Hopkins is and always will be a piece of garbage on the side of the street.

CurlyQ.Howard. It’s true Hopkins is not as he seem, he no street hoodie .
He is good with money invested and yes he a low fat health nut, he was telling a story of how serious he take his eating, he went to a fine dining restaurant. And order vegetables and pasta, after the pasta came he tasted butter in it, so he send it back and was told we put butter on all our pasta, Barnard said not on mine you don’t, you better make me some new pasta right now. Yea he got what he wanted. They probably ran. LOL

The voting question is a good one as Deleware has certain restrictions for felons (what the felony was, has the felon completed his sentence and probation, etc.).

Posted April 18, 2014 11:04 pm 


Livershot

Hopkins is a special athlete that has taken care of himself through out his career. Other than getting beat up by Calzage he has never been beaten up in an all out war. Calzage was pretty much a one sided ass whooping and that has been the only time Hopkins has looked mortal. Nothing out there for Hopkins to prove unless he fights Stevens which I think he can win by hitting and clinching for 12 rounds. Hang them up old timer, your place in boxing history is secure.

Yes, those who work hard, exercise, eat right, and are also physically gifted can remain in shape far beyond what is typically accepted for any age group. Whether or not Hopkins is the beneficiary of better chemistry or just does it the old fashioned way, I don’t know; therefore I will not accuse him. In fact, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

People need to get over their insecurity. While many enhance their ability through drug use, everyone isn’t doing it. There were Physically gifted athletes before the introduction of steroids. Anyone that has studied bodybuilding has seen the vintage bodybuilders pre-steroid era with amazing physiques. Even some older bodybuilders that maintained their physiques into their 40′s and 50′s to a point. I used to go to school with an retired Marine who was in his 40′s who had a phenomenal physique and he didn’t even lift weights. He did all body exercises.

Again, some are well endowed in height, bone thickness, third leg, etc. Its just the way it is.

Hopkins says it is due to his clean alcohol free lifestyle that he has done well at his age. wow and I thought Lance Armstrong was full of it.
Posted April 18, 2014 7:56 pm

ARCHIE MOORE. He had an incredible physique for a 40+ year old man who toyed with his weight. And, I think Archie was better than Hopkins in his 40′s.

Hopkins is quite boring and methodical. He has declined a lot over the years. But he is very savvy and he picks his opponents carefully.

There is a lot to be said about Genetics, Clean living, Mindset, Hard work, dedication, and Rest.

If there is anything else, I don’t know. But one thing I found out is that more fans believe that ALL athletes are on something when I don’t think it is truth.

Listen, Some are born with 10inch 3rd arms. Its just the way it is. Some are born 7’0 tall. Its just the way it is.

The biggest lie is that we are all born equal (as Joe Rogan put it). Its simply not true.

Listen, your lack of ability is only partially your fault. Some of it is just could be that you are not that smart, not that mentally strong to tough, dedicated, eat healthy, etc. And some of it is down to poor genetics. Or just average genetics.

There is also something to be said with the lack of talent in the division. A great old master who has taken care of himself can school a younger foe that isn’t as skilled. It happens all the time in the gym. It just doesn’t usually transfer over to the big fight.

I wasn’t a fan of B-Hop until he started beating the likes of Tarver and Pavlik. And now with him challenging, fighting, and mostly winning against the best fighters between 170-175 pounds, at nearly 50 years old, it truly is astounding. Most of the people posting on here won’t understand how astounding until they double their current age.

Bhop will try to make it a boring foul filled fight and slow the pace. But Shumenov’s got a lot of endurance and is always busy. Whomever’s style is imposed is who wins. I figure Bhop prevails but if he can’t slow down Shumenov it could get interesting. Also the undercard’s pretty good. All in all a good card with 3 decent fights that’s not PPV. No complaints here.
