Hopkins Hopes Beating Kovalev Eliminates The Haters

WBA/IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard 'The Alien' Hopkins (55-6-2, 32KOs), despite his many achievements and continuing to be one of the top boxers in the world at age 49, believes there are still a lot of "haters" out there.

The haters, as Hopkins views them, continuously doubt his abilities and traditionally pick against him.

On November 8th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, Hopkins will face the very dangerous WBO champion Sergey Kovalev (25-0-1, 23KOs) in an HBO televised main event.

A victory over Kovalev will certainly be viewed as of the biggest achievements in Hopkins' long career.

"Maybe this one will be the one where they say 'I'll throw the towel in on being a hater' and they are no longer a hater," Hopkins told BoxingScene.com. "This is why I'm very motivated, each and every day of my life, not only to just prove people wrong but sort of change their thinking."

"There are still some hard heads out there. There are always going to be hard heads out there, because I don't understand ya'll humans. I do understand you but I don't understand your actions sometimes. But they can't understand me, and that's why I'm The Alien."

[QUOTE=royjonesjrKTFO]He's never schooled any decent boxers, only one-dimensional fighters who came straight at him. Each time he step up against talents, he came up short.[/QUOTE] People treat Winky Wright like he's a boxing god - Hopkins schooled the daylights out of Winky, the same with Tar...

[QUOTE=royjonesjrKTFO]I have the same opinion as you do, exactly. He stayed milking those weak Middleweight defenses. Not ONE of those defenses were against someone very good. Tito doesn't count, whom was a Welterweight / Jr. Middleweight. BHop made his name off of bullying the big names moving u...

I've spent my entire boxing fan life hating on Hopkins. You can't hate on him for this fight unless he comes out in round 1 trying to get Kovalev disqualified. In an era where no one fights anyone, Hopkins is 50 years old and went after Sergey Kovalev. That's admirable.

[QUOTE=royjonesjrKTFO]Hit and hold. Fake injuries. Deliberate low blows. Dirty Tactics. Fake ass OLD SCHOOL![/QUOTE] When Hopkins was in his prime as a young fighter he didn't rely on hit and hold tactics.

[QUOTE=Mr.Fantastic]Kovalev isn't that good.[/QUOTE] Correct! If Bhop can maintain his stamina and Box then Kovalev could serve as an easy target. I'm picking Bhop by decision.
