Bernard Hopkins: He’s not just an Alien, He’s a Legend

While watching Bernard Hopkins defeat Beibut Shumenov the other Saturday night, you can’t help but be amazed at what you were witnessing. Sure some will say that Hopkins took advantage of a Shumenov who showed himself not to be an elite A level fighter. Other will say that once again Hopkins, who now calls himself “The Alien” once again feasted on an opponent tailor-made for him. And at a certain level that may be true. However, what can’t be denied is that for Hopkins, at age 49, what he’d doing is nothing short of amazing and unprecedented not just within boxing, but among all sports.

History is made again

Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KOs), at 49-years-old, made history once again on Saturday night.  He is now the oldest man to unify a boxing world championship and the oldest fighter to defend a world title-besting his own record-as he defeated Beibut Shumenov (14-2, 9 KOs) via split decision to become the Unified Light Heavyweight World Champion. Judges Dave Moretti and Jerry Roth scored the fight 116-111 for the future Hall of Famer while Gustavo Padilla scored the bout 114-113 for Shumenov.
 
In the co-feature bouts, Shawn “Showtime” Porter (24-0-1, 14 KOs) overwhelmed Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi (33-6, 7 KOs) to remain undefeated and retain his IBF Welterweight World Championship with an impressive fourth-round TKO over the veteran fighter. Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (31-0, 22 KOs) retained his WBO Middleweight World Championship with a unanimous decision win over Lukas Konecny (50-5, 23 KOs) in a fight controlled by “Kid Chocolate.”
 
The event, promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, took place at the DC Armory in Washington, D.C.

Out Of This World

It’s hard to argue with a 49 year old fighter who just unified the title by defeating a 30 year old champion…so I won’t. Bernard Hopkins is doing the unthinkable and although no one will ever mistake Beibut Shumenov for a world class threat, it’s safe to say Hopkins has created a very special place for himself in Boxing’s Hall of Fame. (Don’t ask me to define Special).

Now we are looking forward to an out of this world, (well really just out of this country), title unifier when Hopkins travels to Montreal to take on another champion, this time it’s Adonis Stevenson. Having already been very successful in Quebec as he went north of the border to defeat Jean Pascal, Bernard will be happy to make the journey to take on Adonis.

Bernard Hopkins easily defeats Shumemov to unify titles, is Stevenson next?

Whether in hindsight the now deposed WBA titlist Beibut Shumenov (14-2, 9 KO’s) suffered from inexperience, had no trainer in his corner, was tailor made or an undeserving champion, or had an off night, the fact remains that he was outclassed in every way by father time in the form of 49-year-old Philly fighter slash legend Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KO’s).

Stevenson vs. Hopkins Seems Almost Inevitable

A few minutes after his win by split decision against Beibut Shumenov (14-1-0) Saturday evening in the ring of the D.C. Armory Arena in Washington, Bernard Hopkins mentioned his strong desire to face the Montréal southpaw Adonis Stevenson to unify the WBC, WBA and IBF light heavyweight world titles.

The fight Hopkins-Shumenov was organized to unify the WBA and IBF titles. The WBA was held by the fighter from Kazakhstan. Stevenson (23-1-0) expressed himself many times his real desire to face Hopkins since his last bout, disputed November 30th at the Québec City Colisée, when he stopped the British Tony Bellew (21-2-1) in less than six rounds.
