NOTHING BECAME HIS ‘LIFE’ LIKE LEAVING IT BERNARD HOPKINS GOES OUT A WINNER BOXING AT ITS BEST !

CHAMPION BERNARD HOPKINS

William Shakespeare

thank you once again

for contributing

to the Box

In Shakespeare’s tragedy “Macbeth” the context for that famous line is much different from Bernard Hopkins’ delight no doubt. Hopkins is no King murdered in his bed as he slept by ungrateful Subjects.

Not at All

Rather Saturday night Hopkins fought his self proclaimed Final Bout of his Career against nemesis Antonio Tarver, Younger Light Heavyweight Champion Tarver, who there is no way aging about to retire 41 year old Bernard Hopkins should have Bested on Saturday night, but Bernard did.

Unanimous 12 Round Victory

in Atlantic City

Going into the Ring it was Antonio Tarver with his record of 24 wins, 4 loses and 18 KOs versus Bernard Hopkins with 47 wins, 4 losses, 1 tie, and 32 KOs. But the reality was in Tarver’s surging career, the difference in age and Hopkins rapidly declining status. Maybe most of all Tarver’s powerful Left Hand which most of the fight experts expected to make short order of Bernard. Add the fact that Tarver is taller and supposedly stronger.

But it never happened Saturday night.

Bernard Hopkins fought

like a Man on Fire

for his Legacy

Here is Hopkins

in his Own Words

” I’m humbled ”

” but I’m proud ”

” I got a chance ”

” to go out ”

” on top ”

Amen

POSTSCRIPT

As for Tiger and his father’s recent death.

How does anyone take Tiger seriously.

On top of our report yesterday that Tiger Woods is maximizing the value of his father’s death with the media in his quest for this week’s U.S. Open there is more. Yes Tiger is so crushed by his father’s passing that yes to prove it Tiger Woods has approved Nike running commercials “featuring” his father to play on TV throughout he U.S Open coverage. In fact Super Rich Tiger making even more money, using his father, before his body is even cold in his Grave.

Tiger’s view of grieving his father is cashing in n his memory. More to the point creating an aura of “sympathy” for Tiger himself as this devastated individual who still has the “courage” (sic) to play golf at this most painful moment for him. Even able to approve some new Nike commercials in his time of Loss.

Tiger is the Best !!
