SUICIDE WATCH: BERNARD HOPKINS FIGHT CANCELED
San Francisco, CA– If you think I cried a river after reading the Bernard Hopkins (56-6-2, 32 KOs) fight scheduled for July 13 has been scrapped because the oh-so obscure Karo Murat, a German native couldn’t get a travel Visa from the Immigration & Naturalization Service, you’re sadly mistaken.
BERNARD TARNISHING SELF IMAGE & GAME TOO!
While one has to respect Bernard being able to mug rated guys seeing he’s closer to 50 than 40, but enough is enough! As a co-promoter in Golden Boy Promotions & Oscar De La Hoya, a deal that was cut around De La Hoya’s unsuccessful 160 lb. title go, Hopkins should realize that this he is taking play away from the current generation.
WHAT DID THEY MEAN BY?
For some reason there were people in Las Vegas that refer to Hopkins-De La Hoya as the “soft spot fight” for some reason…for some reason. Maybe historian “Sin City” Richey can chime in?
SHOWTIME CABLE IN BED WITH IMMIGRATION
Back to Hopkins and the unknown German stiff Murat (25-1-1, 15 KOs). The pairing had a putrid scent to it before it was even announced, thus I want to thank Showtime for giving the upper echelon of the Immigration & Naturalization Service free cable TV for a year!
