Post Comments Thread For: Pro Debut Loss Taught Bernard Hopkins Self-Discipline

Very little is known about Bernard Hopkins’ loss to Clinton Mitchell, other than what is provided by its line result, a majority loss for the Philadelphia boxer.

We know that it served as the pro debut for both fighters nearly 24 years ago in Atlantic City. We know that both fighters disappeared soon after. Mitchell wouldn’t fight again for another seven years, returning shortly after the start of Hopkins’ middleweight title reign way back in 1995.

the only thing that bernard hopkins debut loss, taught him, is that it is better to be a natural 175 lb fighter, and fight middleweights, than it is to be a natural 175 lb. fighter, and fight natural lightheavyweights, cruiserweights, and heavyweights...(word!)

I hear ya, djtmal, but it's pretty hard to stay @ 160 for 15 years (even into your early 40's) if it's not pretty close to your natural weight.

Basically, it's his natural (fighting) weight if he's keeping himself in tip-top shape. It's crazy to think he came into the ring 156 against De la Hoya in '04.

natural light heavyweights can't make 160 dumba$s. if they could they would be natural middleweights. get a clue about what words actually mean genius. read a dictionary or get a ged. (word!) homie slice no diggity doubt.

I've always thought early career losses can be a great thing for a young fighter, provided they aren't KTFO and they work to better themselves . so often we see undefeated talents rise with big hype around them because they are undefeated, only to fall off after tasting defeat. but if that lesson comes early they already know what its like to lose, they know they can come back.

anyways, interesting to hear from hopkins since as mentioned its kind of a mystery about that period of time before his second fight. sounds like he struggled with himself about what to do with his life. obviously made the right choice!

Losing to a white boy clearly damaged his psyche. It probably brought up painful memories of his time in prison when the aryan nation used him as a puppet for their dicks.

From what i remember he is a vegitarian and thats how he stayed at middlweight for so long. But he is a great for what he accomplished but he has those questions to be asked when his career is done

Why did he refuse to give Trinidad a rematch?

Hopkins as a great fighter with many defenses loses to an Olympian, twice, he was not suppose to lose.

After Dawson lost, he is now fighting him for a 2nd time.

Tarver wants the rematch.

Hopkins best move he did in boxing is joining Team Delahoya.
