Bernard Hopkins put on a SHOW last night. Bernard, the light heavyweight champion @ 48 years old, still, and I repeat, still, has it. He fought a slugger in Murat. He was losing the early rounds, but def. found himself near halfway in the fight. Bernard came out with a new nickname, "the Alien". The new nickname def. fits him well. He is of another breed. He came with the alien mask and green trunks to match. The former "executioner" still executed. Bernard took some big hits and kept trucking. Bernard kissed his opponent on the neck, after a clinch, that set up b-hop standing behind Murat. Going into the 12th round, in his corner, B-hop looked at the camera and said he was going for the knockout. B-hop had the boardwalk fans standing up for his fight at the end. You know, people said he was done after Jermaine Taylor beat him two consecutive times. People also said he was done after Chad "Bad" used his physical advantage on him. Now B-hop's still proving them all wrong. After last night, he's the oldest champ to defend his title in the history of the sport. The only person I could see that would beat the "Alien", in the light heavyweight division, is Adonis "Superman" Stevenson. B-hop said after the fight, he's likely going down in weight, and that he wants a "SUPERFIGHT". This guy is a 1st ballot hall of famer and boxing fans should watch his fights from here on out, he's nothing but brilliance. B-hop is from another planet, he truly is an alien.
