B-Hop is one ancient bad-@$$ mofu that never get luv from the boksing scribes for his alien ways of whuppin' the prime best of the best arse.

WTF! Boxing and sport scientists are still trying to figure out how this Methuselah of whip arse is still whuppin' @$$ — comfortably WHUPPIN' young, arses.

If I had to get into dat squared jungle with B-Hop, I'd conveniently develop injuries. OMFG! Ain't no 50-year-old pugger/ex-mugger is going to embarrass me. There is a time to duck. And there is a time to pluck. S-Ko picked the wrong time, and he will have no luck.

I can see it now. B-Hop is gonna whup his arse, and probably get jipped out of Fighter of the Year by the boksing powerful scribes that be.

MAN, you muthakeyboardtappers oughta whup your own arses if you straight-up — like-every-d@mn-bodee-and-dey-momma is [$¡¢] crazier than a hyena — not give this Methuselah-arse pug his just dues as Pug of the Year. You cats didn't even give B-Hop upset of the year when he fooled you and beat Pascal. Holla!

I have nothing but respect for this legend.

I have asked for years RG why isn't Bhop on the cover of ESPN, or doing ESPN interviews building the hype of this fight but also educating adults and KIDS on the importance and proof of proper diet and nutrition along with hard work, discipline and rest can do for your life. In a generation of steroids and hgh, this man is a white light to a healthy and productive yet history making lifestyle.

Shame on this society!

So true. B-Hop is, as Howard Cosell would probably have called him, a “Paragon of Virtue.”

Role model athletes? There are very few. Bernard Hopkins is one of those few.

I am fortunate to have been able to spend so much one-on-one time with this legend, with this future lock for the IBHOF.

I anxiously await the next chapter–which will unfold on November 8–in this great athlete's life.

He was recognized in the ESPN Body issue not too long ago.

As for him not being on the cover, it is a simple answer. No money in it.

The average person does not know Bernard Hopkins sadly. In addition, positive stories don't move the needle in this society, we like “train wrecks”. A good way to think of it is in a way a news reporter once told me, “If it bleeds, it leads”. Combine that with the fact Bernard can say something that people view as a little sideways (I have no problem with it), most media will avoid him as a cover story.
