Bernard Hopkins 49

Here is what Bernard had to say on his 49th birthday.

Hopkins’ biggest birthday wish:

“My birthday wish is to be the undisputed light heavyweight champion of the world. I want big fights in 2014.

“I want to fight twice this year. I know I can do it and be victorious.”

Wish for the sport of boxing in the coming year:

“I want the ‘cold war’ to end in boxing. Everybody in boxing should do what’s right for the sport and its fans.”

Advice for young fighters:

“Young fighters should pay their dues and continue to train and learn their craft before they call themselves superstars.”

Advice for the 40 and over crowd:

“A body that’s moving is alive, a body that’s still is dead. Be conscious of what you put in your body. Continue to be active and move your body.”

Advice for young people everywhere:

“Young people have to learn from the mistakes and bad decisions of others and make sure they don’t repeat them.”
