Photos: Hopkins Makes History Again With Shumenov Win

Bernard Hopkins made more history when he beat Beibut Shumenov on a split decision in Washington on Saturday night. The 49-year-old IBF light-heavyweight champion added Shumenov’s WBA belt to his collection by winning the fight 116-111 on two cards. The other judge made Shumenov the winner by 114-113. He is now the oldest boxer to have unified two "world" titles. Just about everyone else in the crowd of nearly 7,000 at the DC Armory agreed that Hopkins had won convincingly. Shumenov was unable to find ways to land enough scoring shots as the veteran used his experience to frustrate his 30-year-old opponent.
