    He did it tonight. Bernard pulled out that stuff you only see from a Slick Black American neighborhood boxer.


    That was pretty awesome, but I have no idea where you get this idea that it's "slick, black, american". That type of fighting is practiced all over the place by smart and dirty fighters to compensate for lack of physicality. I've seen it from white, black, latino guys.

    Hopkins is a "young" 46, which is a euphemism for "he's been in prison."

    The guy in my avatar, Bernard, and Andre Ward happen to be the best at that right now. All Slick Black guys. Andre Ward is half White though.

    Bernard even made sure to take a stab at Roy in his post fight victory interview.[​IMG]

    Every black man in America has an uncle like Bernard Hopkins.

    Floyd Mayweather? The lazyass who's afraid to fight a little Asian guy?

    Or anyone else with any skill, for that matter.

    i like Floyd and Bernard...but you are a moron.
    Bernard...slapped around by Joe Calzaghe a few years back.
    Floyd... lost the first Castillo fight
    Ward... WILL lose as soon as he fights outside his hometown.
    nothing wrong with rooting for your own "brethren" but at least shout out to the guys that deserve it like Hagler,Sugar Ray etc.
    slick black boxers get starched all the time,styles make fights but you already knew that since you are a real boxing fan right?
    just look at Roy last night

    Sorry, this is absurd. You may as well say that in MMA, all the Brazilians are essentially BJJ guys, all Americans are wrestlers, and all Asians favor karate. There is so much cross pollination that despite the historical strengths and weaknesses, the distinctions are impossible to draw.

    I'm white and my kids will have two uncles like Bernard Hopkins. Seriously, am I the only white guy in America with felonious siblings? [​IMG]
