According to WBA light heavyweight champion Beibut Shumenov, his Showtime televised unification with IBF champion Bernard Hopkins, 49-years-old, has a finalized date of April 19th. Although the fight was reportedly going to happen in Texas or the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the match is going to headline a card at the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C. Hopkins (54-6-2, 32 KOs) wants to unify all of the titles in his division, with Shumenov (14-1, 9 KOs) being his first step. Shumenov recently signed on with adviser Al Haymon and also reached an agreement with Golden Boy Promotions.

People forget that Hopkins (as a star) chose Shumenov. It means that he sees weaknesses in him and ability to win. That's it. Just business. Don't be fool thinking that boxing becomes better. And fighters no matter of risks want fight each other.

[QUOTE=Cupo303]Even the MORE reason for him to either face Stevenson or Kovalev. The underdog role against the new, exciting fighters who are the talk of NSB.[/QUOTE] I think both those guys hurt Hopkins. This fight is winnable but it's going to be boring, clinch, clinch, clinch, pot shot, ...

Hopkins is going to get old eventually , Shumenov will make it tougher than expected but hard to imagine him getting a win.
