CompuBox: Hopkins Lands Most Punches in 12 Years
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

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.

I'm a freakin alien matter of fact I'm goin to talk to my doctor about it on Monday all joking aside Hopkins looked good a little shaky at first he had me worried but then I thought about it later he was probably Just feelin him out but then real talk he tore Murat up god win for THE ALIEN!!

He did look good. The flip side is could help him land a Stevenson or Kovalev fight which I think he could easily get hurt in. I think he'd have a good shot at beating Froch. Not as big a guy, not a huge puncher and can be undone with awkward tactics.

It just shows you that if you take care of your body, you can fight for a very long time.

I wonder why that is.

the dude is special he should fight froch in England and retire off that win, ride off as a champion of two divisions.
