Will this become the Ali/Frasier of our Era…

Kimo Morrison - 7/18/2005

Even before the fight started last night while watching the pre-fight interviews I started having flashbacks of how divided the boxing world was one time before this when another loud mouth-publicly hated Champ was put up against America’s boy and fell too defeat. This was more a battle of good vs. evil fight hype than Bernard Hopkins vs. Jermain Taylor and as such, we may all have been duped by the craftiest double dealer in the game…no not Hopkins…Oscar De La Hoya. No matter in my eyes as the rematch will tell more truth than this stage show offered up as a fight. Remember now for a second who won the favor of the people in the end and who fell off the radar for decades too come. Could Hopkins be embraced by the boxing public? Anything is possible with a blistering redemption bout that will assure Hopkins another huge payday, thus setting up the rubber match setting him close to DLH money, and if he still has it in him he could finish his career at the same weight he started only hoping to go out holding all the belts!

One step back for two giant steps into a cozy retirement?

Kimo Morrison - 7/17/2005

The realist in me says that Bernard Hopkins has been hanging with Oscar De La Hoya too much and let this one slip out of his grasp giving too little too late. I must be fair in my assessment in the fight I had Bernard down by 3 needing at the very least two knock downs in the final round to bring it even and was with him all the way to the last 22 seconds thinking he would pull out another Tito Trinidad finally punctuating the night with Jermain Taylor on the floor. This moment never came and that is why the conspiracy is already brewing within this die too the end nut hugging Hopkins fanatic. Never thought the day for excuses for “Executioner” would come but here is my best defense of what I saw over all in the fight…along with Bernard losing…yes I do feel he lost. I may now commit suicide like Lou’s brother…okay…I am over that! Read More...

Bernard Hopkins: Appreciate Him While You Can

Greg Smith - 7/16/2005

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

---From an Apple Computer Marketing Campaign

I used the above quote to describe Bernard Hopkins last year, and I don’t apologize for the redundancy. When Bernard’s career is over as a boxer, that’s how I’ll remember him. Regardless of what occurs tonight in Las Vegas, Bernard Hopkins has tried to change the structure and function of boxing more than any fighter in the last decade. Like any activist, he’s slipped up and made mistakes, but the totality of his contribution far outweighs his transgressions. Read More...

An old dog teaching new tricks?

Kimo Morrison - 7/16/2005

Since the dawn of man, man has known battle. With this has come the rise and fall of champion warriors both for existence and entertainment as we are a people with taste for blood as long as it is not your own. Many Champions linger too long…as well many are never quite realized to their fullest. Youth has its advantages, advantages that often lead to disadvantages with over confidence however. As a young warrior comes too face the veteran, he must realize that the only thing in his favor is age and with this comes no room for error. Hopkins will be teaching…will Taylor learn or plummet?

Greg Miller

I'm responding to you because I googled teddy atlas and came up with this website.I just heard atlas' negative comments about Kostya Tszyu's fight with Ricky Hatten on ESPN2. atlas should be ashamed and fired for criticizing such a great fight and a great fighter.People like atlas are bad for the sport of boxing.

Breaking Through the Hype for Hopkins Versus Taylor

Salvatore Urciuoli - 7/12/2005

Often times it's difficult to separate hype from reality as a pay per view match approaches. This is generally true and usually proportional to the size of the event promoted. This phenomenon can be seen in recent fights such as DeLaHoya-Hopkins in 2004 and most recently Mayweather-Gatti. Looking back I can remember the vast majority of fans, writers, and pundits giving DLH no chance versus the great but aging Hopkins. This of course changed after the 'show' began as one of the biggest jobs of these promoters and the combatants alike is to convince people that they are about to see a fight that could go either way. And even though you'll have a tough time getting these same people to admit their change of heart today, I can remember the widespread indecision and late charge for betting on DLH. So what substituted itself for common sense and tight rational? 'Promotion' happened but that's not always necessarily a bad thing. Read More...
