Not that it affected the outcome in any way.
I know he hit Tito in the dick once or twice, but Tito was the king of hitting foreigners in the dick. You saw what the little ***** did to Vargas when he was about to get KTFO'd.

It's Trinidad, hands down.

All these newer fans will say Tarver, or Pascal, or even Pavlik, but for anybody that's been watching his career for years the obvious choice is Tito. Like Diego said, he was 36 years old and considered old THEN, furthermore, he wasn't given a snowball's chance in hell of winning the fight : Tito was red hot, undefeated, p4p#2 in the world, and had just made the jump from 154 to 160 to capture a title within 5 brutal rounds against a damn good career Middleweight in his own right in William Joppy, proving he could still bang and hold his own at 160.

The general feeling that night was that Hopkins was going to his own funeral, and you just had to be watching at the time to understand that. Hell, the entire Middleweight Unification tournament was set up by HBO and Don King for Tito en route to a superfight with p4p#1 Roy Jones. Hopkins wasn't even an afterthought. This night was created for Trinidad.

And to go out there with his back against the wall the way he did and not just win, but absolutely dominate, school, and stop Trinidad is about as good as it gets as far as pissing in the face of your critics goes.

Yeah, for a typical Hopkin's fight, the foul level was very low.
There was a few times where he butted him, but they werent too serious.


His best win.

Most likely his title defense against Morrade Hakkar.The fight defined an era and represented so much more than just a boxing match.Hopkins carried the entire nation's hopes on his shoulders after France had inexplicably undermimed the war on terror and was under great pressure to deliver a victory - and to do so in a decisive manner.


The hype was unprecedented and Hopkins was even invited to the White House to meet the president,where upon he received some "encouragement" from the leader of the free world: reaching down Bernard's pants,the president grasped Bernard's testicles,leaned over and gently whispered in his ear, "We need these to beat France,B-Hop - don't let us down,n^gga."



Needless to say,he didn't let them down and he solidified his status as a true American hero.

I completely forgot about all this. Not to mention, that was a damn good fight too.

It has to be the Trinidad fight.

He was a huge underdog going up against a guy who was knocking out everyone he faced and it was his first real big fight. Instead of crumbling under Tito's bombs he took Tito to school and dominated him over 12 rounds even stopping him in the final round.

Excellent performance from start to finish and a win that brought him into the spotlight.

In my opinion the victories over Tarver, Pavlik an Pascal were better than the victory over Tito, not for the performance but because the first 3 are the same size of Hopkins, Tito was smaller
