Later tonight, inside of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, one of this generation’s finest pugilists will again take center stage as Bernard Hopkins will look for a successful defense of his WBC light heavyweight title against Germany’s Karo Murat.
The 48-year old Hopkins continues to impress despite his advanced age and he is still looking for the most lucrative and eye-catching fights that could round out his Hall of Fame career.
Last month, while inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas following Floyd Mayweather’s victory over Saul Alvarez, Hopkins even insisted that he would be willing to come down to 160 pounds for a future fight with Mayweather next year.
During a recent swing through the Mayweather Boxing Club, I attempted to speak with Floyd Mayweather Sr. about Hopkins’ fight with Murat, but all the outspoken trainer could seem to focus on was Hopkins’ interest in a fight with his son.
