yeah i saw that, i was like, hopkins is holding back tears it looks like, it's an emotional moment if you really look at it, basically the whole world saying that you're washed up and that the young kid is going to be the first to stop you this and that, the betting odds we're against you, there has to be a rush of emotions knowing that they couldn't take anything away from your performance, no one could deny the excellence that was displayed in the ring no matter how much they wanted to. i've seen fighters cry in a win with much less on it than this fight.
