“Boxing was a way out” for living legend Bernard Hopkins. The Philly native remembers the dark moments from his past, and the self-determination which propelled him to the top of the sport. Here, watch the special video feature from Showtime, I Am a Fighter, as you hear from Hopkins himself as he talks about how he got to where he is today, and how and why he got started with the sport of boxing.
“I’ve shown for 20-plus years, with a legacy that will be talked about way after I’m gone, that I am different.” – Bernard Hopkins
His accomplishments are too long to list. Twenty successful middleweight title defenses. Longest reign of a middleweight world champ. Oldest world champion in boxing history. But age and gold belts aren’t what define Bernard Hopkins as a fighter. Check out the video I Am a Fighter to hear what makes “The Alien” tick. And don’t miss Hopkins as he sets another record – this time as the oldest fighter in history to make an initial title defense – when he puts his IBF Light Heavyweight Title on the line against Karo Murat, Saturday, Oct. 26, LIVE on SHOWTIME®.
It’s always great to hear Hopkins speak his mind, so be sure to watch this video feature from Showtime.
