Some irony and some truth to Big George’s words to Bernard Hopkins. Here is what he had to say to TMZ.
“Leave while you can. When the curtain closes, you don’t want to be laying on your back in the middle of the ring.”
When asked what he would say to Hopkins, Foreman told us, “Bernard, you looked great! Fantastic! Isn’t that the way you wanna go out? You looked unbeatable, now leave.”
“I think Muhammad Ali would say the same thing. Get out and smell the roses.”
Hopkins seems to be in excellent health and he is beating these guys pretty handily without taking a lot of punishment, so I say he should go as long as he wants.
