The Great Bernard Hopkins will perform his final act on December 17, 2016. The Hopkins farewell stage has been set for The Forum in Inglewood, California. The sacrificial lamb that has been laid in front of Hopkins to execute is 27-year-old Joe Smith, Jr.
Smith only has 1 loss on his professional boxing record, and is coming off an impressive 1st round TKO victory over a tough Andrzej Fonfara back in June. With the win, Smith captured the WBC International light heavyweight title.
With that said, it may not be a happy ending for Hopkins given that Smith has true knockout power. In any case, at 51 years of age, I feel that Hopkins will somehow, someway, figure out the Smith puzzle to win against Smith.
Bernard Hopkins’ incredible boxing career will come to an end on December 17, 2016. Now, if you have to compare a fight between Bernard Hopkins and Father Times, I would give the split-decision victory to Bernard ‘The Alien’ Hopkins.
So, Boxing World, who do you think would win if Bernard Hopkins faced off against Father Times? Check out Potshot Boxing’s (PSB) latest boxing poll and vote.
