Hopkins

Bernard Hopkins was born on January 15, 1965 in Philadelphia, PA. He currently carries a record of 55-6-2, with 32 knockouts.

 

Hopkins is known as one of the greatest middleweights of all time. He is a former Undisputed World Middleweight Champion, and the first boxer to retain all four world titles of each major sanctioning body, plus the Ring Magazine belt simultaneously. He also defended his world middleweight championship a record twenty times (from 1995-2005). During that period, some of his victims were Glen Johnson, Felix Trinidad, and Oscar De La Hoya.

 

Hopkins was finally dethroned by Jermain Taylor in 2005. Then, in 2006, at the age of 41, Hopkins decided not to retire and moved up to light heavyweight to face the division’s best, Antonio Tarver. A 3-1 underdog, Hopkins earned a one-sided unanimous decision victory over Tarver to earn The Ring light heavyweight title.

 

After Hopkins defeated Ronald “Winky” Wright in 2007, he faced Joe Calzaghe in 2008, and lost by a narrow split decision. Although many thought Hopkins was done, he fought on and faced Kelly Pavlik, the middleweight champion, at a catch-weight of 170. Hopkins handed Pavlik his first loss by a one-sided unanimous decision.

 

In 2009, Hopkins stayed busy by facing and defeating Enrique Ornelas by a unanimous decision. It was a tune-up to face Roy Jones Junior, the only man to defeat Hopkins prior to his historic middleweight run. In 2010, Hopkins defeated Jones by a unanimous decision.

 

At the end of 2010, Hopkins challenged Jean Pascal for the WBC light heavyweight title. Despite going down twice early in the contest, Hopkins fought back hard and the fight was declared a draw.

 

In May of 2011, Hopkins and Pascal fought again. Hopkins earned a unanimous decision and won the WBC belt while becoming the oldest boxer to ever hold a world championship at the age of 46.

 

In October of 2011, Hopkins defended his title against Chad Dawson, but the fight was declared a no contest after two rounds when Hopkins suffered an accidental injury. Hopkins and Dawson met again in April of 2012 and Dawson dethroned Hopkins via majority decision.

 

In March of 2013, Hopkins regained championship status by defeating Tavoris Cloud by a unanimous decision. With the victory, Hopkins beat his own record by becoming the oldest world champion ever at the age of 48.

 

Then, in October of ‘13, Hopkins defended the IBF belt with a one-sided unanimous decision win over Karo Murat.

 

Last April, Bernard defeated WBA titleholder Beibut Shumenov by decision to unify the IBF and WBA 175-pound belts while extending his record as the oldest champion ever at the age of 49 (and now the oldest to unify two world titles as well).
