Bernard Hopkins Eyes Spot Behind Mayweather, Ward

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

49-year-old Bernard "The Alien" Hopkins (55-6-2), already the oldest boxer in history to hold a world championship, is targeting the number three position in the pound for pound rankings. Hopkins regards Floyd Mayweather Jr. as the best fight in the world, and has no problem with Andre Ward being considered as the second best out there. And after Saturday night he sees himself as being deserving of getting in line for that third position.  

Over the weekend, Hopkins became the oldest fighter to unify two world titles after dominating Beibut Shumenov over twelve rounds to combine the WBA/IBF world light heavyweight titles.

"The pound-for-pound best fighter in the world right now is Floyd 'Money' Mayweather," Hopkins said. "I'll tell you, behind Andre Ward, who I believe is second and should be, I'm not that far from the top three. My age and the way I'm doing it. I'm just telling you, I'm not done yet."

Hopkins is looking to face the winner of next month's fight between WBC champion Adonis Stevenson and Andrzej Fonfara.

Lara should have wins over Williams, Vanes, Angulo, and Trout. All Top 10 guys at 154. He's proven himself time and time again to be on the best fighers in the world. He struggled with Angulo, but ultimately stopped him, and completely out classed Trout.

Age doesn't mean he gets in the Top 10.....opposition does. Hopkins hasn't beat a good fighter since Pascal. Cloud lost like 2 of previous 3, and Murat is a Euro level fighter.....and don't even get me started on Shumenov. He'll be Top 10 if he beats Stevenson though. How does Mikey beat Salido ...

[QUOTE=Francis M.]There was nothing hard to score on that fight. Hop was missing on a lot of his shots and couldn't even secure a clinche. Rewatch the fight, dude looked like an amateur in that fight.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Japanese Boxing]BHop got his ass spanked by Dawson. You think he wants any of ...
