Bernard Hopkins doesn't want to just pad his remarkable resume against German Karo Murat on Saturday. The ageless American wants to end his nine-year knockout drought.
Hopkins, the oldest boxer to win a major world title, will put his International Boxing Federation light-heavyweight belt on the line against Murat, months after their scheduled July bout was scuppered when Murat was denied a US visa.
Hopkins, 48, took the IBF title in March with a victory over Tavoris Cloud, breaking his own age mark by nearly two years.
