Bernard Hopkins Speaks with Derrel “Jazz” Johnson

Tonight, the future boxing hall of famer, the Legendary Bernard Hopkins, returns to the ring at the age of 48. Hopkins last fight was a loss to Chad Dawson in April of last year. The Executioner returns to face IBF Light Heavyweight champion Tavoris “Thunder” Cloud. The Golden Boy Promotions event (at which Hopkins is an executive) in association with Don King Promotions, will be held live at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the second fight card at the new arena that opened
in September. There are still limited tickets available, and the fight will also be aired live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 9:30pm.

If Hopkins wins the fight, he would break his own record and become the oldest man to win a world title. To say the least, Hopkins is inspiring for his ability to still compete in a sport where it is typical to see men perform who are literally half his age.
