B Hop... Stats dont lie.... Pure LEGEND
Id like everyone to check out the BoxRec Top 20 ranking of the Light Heavy Weigh Division to full appreciate what Bernard Hopkins has achieved.
He is not only Number 1 on the list
but is the only Boxer in the top 20 who did not start his career in the 00's,
Is debut was 1988!!!!
There is not a single boxer who debuted in the 90's in the ranking, and B Hop debuting in 1988 is ****ing number 1!!!!!
WOW Just Wow
Man is a complete legend

Yes legend he is. But he came into the sport late in life and is still here in the sport because he loves it. He has hung around long enough to be to pick champs he thinks hes got the measure of. Losing one or two once in a while dont matter as hes still in with a chance whenthe right opportunity comes along.
JC could still be around as well, but he achieved all he wanted to achieve. BH wasnt happy or satified so had to stay longer, and its worked out. Most people dont fight at 46 either because they cant or they achieved all they wanted when they were younger and retire.

This division is really only starting to cook up now too. You have Hopkins, Pascal, Dawson, Cloud as the veterans although Cloud is still kinda green, but then you got promising people on the rise like Cleverly & Sillakh who are a few wins away from getting their big shot.
Not to mention a few people from the super 6 will probably join them in a little too. Glad to see things are starting to pick up properly around 168-175. If somebody can come out on top against all of them in the next 1-3 years as the clear #1, that guy is gonna be ****in great.

Cloud - Pascal would be fireworks in my opinion, I'd love to see that fight...
