Hopkins: I Won't Fight Ward, Even For $15 Million Dollars

IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (53-6-2, 32 KOs) is in no way going to consider a future fight with WBA/WBC super middleweight champion Andre Ward. Hopkins has too much respect for Ward, considers him a friend, and says there is no amount of money that would make him fight Ward. On Saturday night, Hopkins broke his own record, at age 48, by becoming the oldest boxer to ever win a world championship by winning a twelve round decision over Tavoris Cloud (24-1, 19 KOs).

"Andre Ward is a protege of myself. I would never fight Andre Ward, and I even told Richard [Schaefer] that in the ring....$10 million dollars, $8 million dollars, $15 million dollars....I told him in the ring it's not the money. And I mean that. And I put that on my mom's grave," Hopkins said.

[QUOTE=tlarry]Bhop is letting these promoters know, he's fighting to spoil careers. He considers Ward the next great to carry the torch for years to come. If he can make the pretenders go away, he is motivated by that. That's credible. It's these idiotic promoters that go hound to make stupid fig...

Did Mary Popkins say it's not about the money and would turn down the fight even if it was about 15Mill. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: That's some straight up bull****. They are PRIZE FIGHTERS. Ain't no boxer going to turn down 15mill. Mary Popkins needs more people.
