B-Hop can do what he wants to do because Naazim is a genie. Holla!

dino da vinci says:

Naaz is indeed a genie. Man's ridiculously cool and shortlist world's best at what he does. BHop is going to fight until he's 60. Fighters could learn so much from Hopkins and the way he has gone about approaching his craft. But think about it: If you knew at some point in the future another man is coming with the intent to hurt you, take what you have and possibly impact the balance of your future, why wouldn't you not only never miss a workout, but torture yourself in training so nobody can torture you in front of the known, civilized world. Diet and rest as well. There are a great many fighters out there who are their own worst enemy and when they suffer a setback, it's the manager's fault. Next loss, it's the trainer, third outing they want to take it out on the promoter.

deepwater2 says:

Hopkins leads the clean life. Naz knows his game inside and out. Whatever happened to his sons bear and …..?

The Shadow says:

Good point, Dino. I think rest is a concept that's been undervalue recent years. Especially with the go-getter phenomenon praising the hard work of entrepreneurs pulling all nighters, not sleeping enough etc.

I fall victim to that thinking too. In reality, rest is so important for an athlete.

How important do you think, in your estimation, percentage wise, rest is to a boxer's regimen?

The Good Doctor says:

[QUOTE=Skibbz;46319]And that's the frustrating reality of dealing with humans. Not everyone has the strength of character or mind to dig through the layers of rock no matter how big the nugget of gold may be at the end. I was recently asked by a friend of mine who wanted to get in shape for a simple yet effective training regime and diet. We sat down and he told me his reasons for wanting to get fit and what his motivations were. I gave him a plan that would work, but would require effort and dedication on his part. I didn't propose to throw him into the deep end, but slowly work him up. I asked him today how it was going, and jokingly he replied that it wasn't because fitness wasn't for him. It's a sad truth but the world was built off the backs of the tough, disciplined and agile of mind; but is populated predominantly by the feeble, slow and weak of mind.[/QUOTE]

Man oh man we could talk hours about this. I do some motivational speaking and can get people out of their seats, get them screaming, and ready to run through brick walls. Two weeks later, they are right back to the person they were before I spoke to them. With the exception of the committed few, all I really do is give people a warm fuzzy feeling inside for a little while. They can get the same thing from a bubble bath if you ask me.

The Shadow says:

And this man is a wiz, no doubt. Good interview EM.

What I do find remarkable, and what I kinda find missing in discussions, is the fact that up until he signed with GBP/Haymon, this guy was and educated lawyer who served as — check this — his own manager, promoter, trainer and advisor.

More Richardson, please. It would be so cool to follow him in the gym for a day and produce a mini 10 min. documentary from it. So awesome, would love to see it.

dino da vinci says:

You can have a life, but if you take it from an old school perspective, it sorts of maps itself out for you. You are up before dawn to do your roadwork. Why? Because the pollutants in the air have had the longest period of time to settle before the new days pollutants begin theirs. After roadwork, a full breakfast is in order. Short nap before any log cutting (think Marciano and Ali) stretching, training, sparring. Where you mix your lunch and dinner is up to the trainer. Trainers like guys that like movies. Trainers frown upon guys who are forever chasing skirts. Skirt chasing has been the bane of many a trainer since boxing's earliest days. When a Marvelous Marvin Hagler tells you someone has to pay for him being away from his family with no contact for 8-10 weeks, you can see how this pent up tension can come into play. Evening time should be a time of relaxation for a world contender, not a time to see and be seen. And truthfully, some guys break all the rules and it takes a very long time to catch up to them. Usually doesn't end well and they usually end up broke for their all their effort. Then there's Bernard Hopkins.

@Shadow. You're starting to scare me. You have a tendency to mention things we're in the process of embarking on or things I've been thinking about, and you do it a lot. Sorta cool. Sorta creepy.

Haha, really? Well, as they say, great minds think alike. Plus, you're one of my online boxing Zen masters and I like to learn from the best. So I guess that explains it! But pretty cool, and I guess, pretty creepy, too! Lol. Just keep me in the loop when new stuff does go down!

Radam G says:

Dino can keep you in the loop, and I can keep you in the poop. Hehehe! Proper rest is just as important as proper training and dieting. They are the Trinity of boxing. Holla!

Isn't that the truth…
Great insight..

Being 35 I have missed out on the old school, only knowledge is what my father passed on to me and of course what I can research today.

Those old days, were the best days. I feel left out.

Hopkins is from the old school, I try to learn everything I can from him. He is well respected and used as an example many a times to my ever growing son. Health and nutrition, good choices, no drugs and using your mind as well as your body. I also had my son watch a documentary on him about where he came from, the bad choices he made, his consequences and his redemption.

I like it. Good way to talk to the kid. It may teach your lessons better than words ever could.

Is it hard being a single father? My father was alone with me for a little while also. He eventually let his estranged witch wife move back in. He said it was tough being alone and he ain't much of a smooth talker.

The most important and challenging task you will have in life is raising a child.

It is not hard now, course my son just turned 15. He is a good kid, no late nights out, skipping school or getting into trouble. He is easy when it comes to that.

The hardest time was when I went back to college for 5 years. That was tough. He was 3-8 during that time and its tough finding time to study and such, especially with a sick kid. I had some help from my gma and mom though, along with a few friends. Without them all I would not have been able to finish. Lots of night classes and Saturday classes. Saturday classes are excellent 8-12 and done for the week.

I am going back again to finish my other degree soon.. Damn I am dreading it haha.

Is anyone going to the bhop fight? I am considering it.

Super focking props, man. You're a hero. Real talk. Is there a reason he wasn't with his mother, if you don't mind me asking? (Don't mean to be rude; it's just that it's rare to find a real single father. My mother wasn't equipped to have a child and my grandmother was getting older, that's why I ended with my father, who wanted me all along.)

And why was he sick? I'm sure he acts right due to the values you instilled in him from your old man.

Re: B-Hop, I just might go if I'm up that way. I'll let you know. Would love to sit with a notepad next to you, trying to catch all the subtleties of the grand master hehehehe…

Or ask EM if you can cover it!! That would be so epic! Imagine that, having one of our forum regulars actually attend a card and cover it live on the forum, along with an Amayseng penned/EM edited fight report at the end of the night!

Mike, this is your guy. If this goes through, I'll email my old editor abroad and take the assignment too. Hook it up.

Trust me — even if it's your first time, you can do a better job than lots of the guys who just come there to drink beers and get good seats.

Sometimes I think you just have to shoot a domain to promoters to get credentials. Smh. Anyway, lets do it!

The Shadow says:

In fact, Dino and Mike, that would be a pretty cool monthly reward for the best poster. The option to cover a local card, wherever said cat is.

You already know y'all cant be everywhere. And have the poster report under his alias. [I]By Radam G[/I] not knowing that it's really Bobby Pacquiao. (JK, lol…)

Anyway, I know that would be awesome. Especially for a cat like that Miguel, if he ever shows up. He wanted to be a writer. Well, shoot, get out there!

When he was about 6 months old I worked full time and his mom stayed home with him. However she said it was just too much for her. At about 10 months she was gone and I have not seen her since.

I did not mean he was ill with any condition, just that when kids get sick it takes all your attention and makes going to school more difficult..

appreciate the compliments.

Not sure about the journalistic coverage but I would def do a write up on the trip and fight.

Thx pal.

Yes, you guys are of course talented enough to post a story. I'd take it, of course I would. —EM

The Commish says:

I have always heard–and believed–that rest is as important to a fighter as is training hard. Recently, I asked B-Hop that question when he was on my SiriusXM show. He said, “I train hard and I rest hard.” Then he threw the ingredients out there that he believed were essential to being a sharp, strong fighter. Those ingredients were Training, Sleeping and Diet. I asked him “What about Mickey's (from “Rocky”) 'Women Weaken Legs'” theory. B-Hop said he believed it. He said, “If I stay up all night making love, I'm not getting sleep, am I? Plus. it weakens your mind, your attitude. You You gotta' train your body as well as your mind. A fighter has to eat right, train, right, sleep well and keep away from sex before a fight.”

“For how long should a fighter abstain?” I asked him.

“When that training camp starts!” he answered. “Four weeks…six weeks…eight weeks! You'll be sorry if you don't listen to me.”

I reminded him I'm a writer and a sportscaster, not a fighter. He laughed and said, “Then go enjoy yourself!”

Wow. Props. And understood. Sick days are harder when you're alone.

And you should DEFINITELY do that. See what EM just said?!

You already have some awesome funny analogies and you definitely would have appreciation for B-Hop's craft and interpretation of the sweet science, plus the physiological expertise to properly document and appreciate what it takes for someone like I'm to do what he does.

It'll be just like watching and posting here. Instead it'll be much more compelling and reach a bigger audience. What's not to love?

If you do it, I'll come meet you. We'll be on press row together. Just bring your B-Hop notepad, a laptop, some water and you're good.

If not that fight, then a local one. You'll love it.

Put him on, EM!!

EM just said he'd hook you up, my dude!

List the card (your assignment), what you plan to cover and he will either send a request to the promoter on behalf of you or show you how to do it yourself.

As long as an editor has assigned you to do it, the process is relatively simple.

(For me, I get a letter of assignment from my editor, he signs it, I show it to promoter, they get back to me in a few days with information.)

Not sure whether EM has anyone in DC anyway. If you live close to DC, you could also try some smaller cards. There must be a lot of them there.

Either way, shouldn't be a problem. Shoot a mail to Mike and see if you guys can work something out. Best part is you get to be in the media room with your buddy Dan! Hahaha…

Made me chuckle, I think that's Bhop all over. Terrific motivation and a very honest person. Two attributes very rare to find in people, let alone in one person!

It's interesting. BHop could give another fighter every last detail in his design for building the perfect fighter, and almost all would just follow the instructional parts that they agree with. The more difficult to implement or intrusion on their lifestyle the quicker that advice would get shelved.

Preach, man! You guys are speaking the truth. They just get a kick, do stuff and go right back to what they were. What they need is to take that motivation and address their bad habits that got them where they don't want to be in the first place.

Skibbz says:

Made me laugh good! What a sad story though.. It's such a depressing situation if you ask me. In this day and age many people care more about what shoes are on their feet than the state of their health or wealth. I think a lot of the issues come from parenting or a lack of. A strong pair of role models in a kids upbringing will do great do influence their future. Those nuns sound like they made a world champ out of RG! My dad always told me to be tough, never give up and follow all things through to the end. I never give up these days in anything I do and my discipline is generally very good (unless ladies are involved…)

Society breeds these problems in my opinion and no matter who you have trying to inspire wisdom into these young minds, 20 minutes later they'll have forgotten and be back where they started. It's not always the case though, sometimes an older brother or commanding figure is what a lot people need to help bring about the right changes in their life that stick.

Somebody was once comparing two individuals on the conclusion of their speech. With the first one they'd be on the feet applauding. With the other they wanted to grab their guns and lanterns.

Of course great role models are invaluable. My parents never taught me I could conquer the world but they didn't tell me I couldn't either. I think it's a fire that burns within that differs from person to person, be it for great achievement, help your fellow man, etc. When I was a really young Dino, I wanted to be a gangster like in the movies. And the first mischief I got in went without a hitch (In hindsight nothing really, but we all have to start somewhere) but I didn't like the way it made me feel about myself. And I dedicated my life to be the perfect person you see now.

People have different personalities, but I don't think that their personalities should affect their abilities to succeed in whatever path they wish to take. I have a friend who always had the gift of the gab, when we were around 13 we walked past a famous TV personality and he immediately struck up a conversation, seemingly eager not to let the opportunity pass by. 10 minutes later the guy asked for his home telephone number and invited him to come and see the set.. Now he's hosting a sports news show on a satellite channel, but he still aspires for better things.

That fire inside of people has to be kindled, and often rekindled by a strong positive role model. If they are there then it can be blown to a fire that won't be put out at the first signs of a storm. I have great faith in the mental absorption abilities of young minds, whenever I get a chance I try to inspire a young child in any way I can. I grew up where most of the kids had single parents, little food to eat and the schooling was far below average. I was lucky in that I had a hard working family, and the opportunity through sports to attend a better school outside of my home town. Whenever I go back to my home town to see my old friends, they're all working very low paid jobs, and they don't believe they can ever achieve anything in life. There role models were non-existent, they only saw the other kids on the block and hence never saw further than the palms of their hands.. Tough world that we live in!

Yes, but then there are others who land in a foreign land, don't know the language and have no safety net and they're now on lists put out by Bloomberg and Forbes. And of course, success means different things to different people. But with that said, I find myself forever scratching my head when I come across the guy who tries to put on an air of worldliness and they want to expound on how successful they've been and you want to say 'but you had a hot dog cart on an about average street corner. Don't really see how you've gotten to that place in your head that you're at now.'

Of course, the polar opposite are those that have achieved staggering heights and their sleeves are rolled up for the next conquest, and it's just another day in the park.

For sure DDV, I've passed a bunch of those types before and I try not to linger too long to form a relationship.. You know had you made the statement you thought of they'd be on the defensive telling you that hot dog stand grosses 200K a year.. It's hard to amount to something when you're yapping on about being the full biscuit, but weak minds need to provide a sense of security to themselves however false it may be and without it they'd be in a much worse mental state.

I'm down here in the San Diego, Cali, area for a minute. I ran in to this Pinay who's messed up in the head and on the American dream and on AmerKano men. The chick just sells any lies none stop.

She is a grown-@ss, middle-aged sucker working at a park selling lemonade and trying to convince me that she sells $8,000 a day of lemonade. And with her selling of bad-for-your-health candies, falling-apart coldcut sandwiches and cotton candy, she does $50,000 a day.

WTF! San Diego Balboa Park — one of the World Fairs of the early of the 20th Century — is barely bigger than a dog pound, compared to worldwide big-city major parks.

And in the end of my conversation with this fibbing chick, she asked for a loan because her and her BL boyfriend didn't have enough money to pay their car insurance.

Wow! These clowns were driving around with two small kids in an uninsured car. But ole chick had the audacity to perpetrate a fraud of being highly successful and rich to me. The nerves of some. Holla!

[QUOTE=The Shadow;46052]In fact, Dino and Mike, that would be a pretty cool monthly reward for the best poster. The option to cover a local card, wherever said cat is.

You already know y'all cant be everywhere. And have the poster report under his alias. [I]By Radam G[/I] not knowing that it's really Bobby Pacquiao. (JK, lol…)

Anyway, I know that would be awesome. Especially for a cat like that Miguel, if he ever shows up. He wanted to be a writer. Well, shoot, get out there![/QUOTE]

I've asked Radam if he was indeed Manny, but he said no. Never thought to ask him if he was his brother.

Hehehehe! Holla!
