If you really think about it, that movie poster above (via) could be the fight poster for every Bernard Hopkins fight, from here to eternity. You basically have every necessary element for a Hopkins fight in there, too: a colorful, if not annoying mask, an old corpse, and wrestling moves.
This weekend on HBO, Bernard Hopkins attempts become the oldest person on the face of the planet, ever, in taking on Sergey Kovalev. That means that this week on Queensberry Rules Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR’s Patrick Connor do a lot of blah-blah-blah’ing about it and quote the same movies over and over.
But also most likely, probably, maybe on the agenda: this past weekend’s Showtime card featuring Andrzej Fonfara vs. Doudou Ngumbu, Tomoki Kameda vs. Alejandro Hernandez and Javier Fortuna vs Abner Cotto, the Hopkins-Kovalev undercard with Sadam Ali vs. Luis Carlos Abregu, and overseas stuff like Felix Sturm vs. Robert Stieglitz and Tomasz Adamek vs. Artur Szpilka.
