ON DEMAND: Bernard Hopkins Calls In and Talks Legacy, His November Fight in AC
What will you be doing at 50?
Will you be going 12 rounds in a boxing ring against a man they call "The Crusher?"
That's exactly what Philadelphia native and current IBF, WBA and IBA light-heavyweight world champion will be doing.
He'll be fighting Sergey Kovalev at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on November 8th.
Hopkins refers to himself as "an alien" now and not The Executioner. In fact, he insists that he is an alien and carries alien blood.
Hopkins called in to 97.3 ESPN FM and talked with Mike Gill and Matt Segal about still fighting at the age of 50 and what he wants his legacy to be when he finally calls it quits.
The fight is something that a struggling Atlantic City desperately needs right now with casino closures and the summer tourist season coming to an end.
We will see how ticket sales go and hopefully boxing is a non-gaming event that can draw a crowd to Atlantic City in the fall.
Hopkins expects a sellout.
