CompuBox: Hopkins Lands Most Punches in 12 Years

Soon to be 49-yr. old Bernard Hopkins, displaying little movement, had to rumble for this win against the stamina-challenged Murat.  Hopkins' 247 landed punches are the most he's landed in 12 years (he landed 260 in his upset win over Trinidad).  B-Hop avg'd 47 thrown per round, eight more than he avg'd in his last 9 fights.  Karo Murat, who avg'd just 41 thrown per round, had his moments, landing 23 power shots in round 9, the most landed by a Hopkins opponent in 20 years (Roy Jones landed 25 power shots in round 6 of their 1st fight).  Many of Murat's 120 landed power shots were flush to the head of B-Hop but lacked pop.
