Hopkins: I Was Telling Murat’s Corner To Stop the Fight

It was a bizarre yet highly entertaining moment — Bernard Hopkins had opened a cut over Karo Murat’s eye in the eighth round of their fight, and suddenly Hopkins turned his back and moved into Murat’s corner, speaking to members of his team while his opponent pursued him and then attacked him with shots.

“I was talking to his corner. I was trying to negotiate with them to stop the fight,” Hopkins said at the post-fight press conference. “This guy was coming, bleeding, and taking a lot of punishment. … I looked at the corner, I said, ‘This guy’s all cut up, I’m going to keep beating him, and it’s going to get ugly.’ That’s what I did. They didn’t listen, though.”

Hopkins went on to win a unanimous decision, improving to 54-6-2 and 32 knockouts. Murat fell to 25-2-1 with 15 KOs.

That was a stupid move by Bernard, BUT.....That was just Bernard being Bernard. I thought it was silly.

... After the decision, Smoger kissed B-Hop!!!... ... In the real life, Smoger is acting as a judge in a court of law, isn't he?

Stop it for what exactly? Murat wasn't even phased by Poopy's sloppy work and pillow punches

[QUOTE=JaguaresMx]dude, you gotta explain that sig. where does it come from?[/QUOTE] Spoof fights are quite common in Muay Thai. It's just for entertainment purposes, obviously not real.
