Hopkins and Andre Ward Agree - We Are NEVER Fighting!
By Bill Emes
BoxingScene.com was backstage at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, when WBC light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (52-5-2, 32KOs) approached Andre Ward (25-0, 13KOs), the WBC/WBA king at super middleweight, to congratulate him for his Saturday's dominating performance against Carl Froch. Hopkins and Ward, who have a lot of respect for each other, were in agreement that the two of them were never going to fight each other in the ring.
Ward: I appreciate you coming. They said David Haye was coming for him, and I said Bhop was coming for me.
Hopkins: That was a masterful performance.
Ward: This is your hometown.
Hopkins: It's yours now, we can share it. It's big enough for both of us.
Ward: BHop, we ain't fighting. I respect what you're doing and I wouldn't.
Hopkins: No, we're never fighting. They don't have enough money for me, or you. And if you change your mind, I'm moving out of the country!
