Photos: Hopkins Stages an Alien War To Beat Murat

Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City - IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (54-6-2, 32 KOs) grabbed a twelve round unanimous decision over mandatory challenger Karo Murat (25-2-1, 15 KOs). The 48-year-old Hopkins was no longer the calm, defensive boxer with a bag of dirty tricks. Instead he made it a war and was happy to exchange in toe to toe fashion with Murat. The scores were 117-110, 119-108, 119-108.

WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin (30-0, 22 KOs) was able to secure a tenth round stoppage of Gabriel Rosado (21-7, 13 KOs). Quillin dropped Rosado in the second round and appeared to be on his way to a big win, but then Rosado stunned him in the fourth and began to press, and land, on the champion. During the ninth round, Quillin threw a hard jab that opened a horrible cut on Rosado's left eyelid. Early in the tenth, as the cut opened wider, the ringside doctor would not allow Rosado to continue.

Heavyweight banger Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30 KOs) scored two knockdowns before stopping Nicolai Firtha (21-11-1, 8 KOs) in the fourth round. Wilder dropped Firtha twice in the first and then finished him with a big knockdown in the fourth.

Hopkins adapted and came out of his comfort zone to get the win against a very gritty, skilled opponent......that is the sign of a legend.

Ric Flair ain't got sh1t Hopkins on the playing dirty department. And Quillin is a bozo. Got lucky the judges, the refs and the doctor were all on his side.
