Hopkins vs Kovalev – The Writers’ Predictions

Corey Gabriel Quincy
Bernard Hopkins is an all-time great; it would be ignorant to say that he will go down without a fight. With that said, I don’t know if he can handle the heavy-handed Kovalev’s onslaught for 12 rounds. I actually feel Hopkins’ craftiness could help him survive the distance, but he’s going to take some damage early on; too much to mount a comeback. He’s not going to get walked on, though – Hopkins will put on a good fight in probably inevitable defeat. Kovalev late TKO or points.

Bernard Hopkins: Too Great for a Single Era

When 49-year old WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KOs) faces 31-year old WBO Light Heavyweight Champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (25-0-1, 23 KOs) in a unification battle on Saturday, November 8 in Atlantic City, he will bring more than a pair of gloved fists. Hopkins brings almost 30 years of history with him.

The continuing success of  “The Alien” can make it easy to forget just how long Hopkins has been a part of the professional boxing landscape.
