Light heavyweights Bernard Hopkins and Joe Smith Jr. Share several things in common as they get ready to square off inside the ring.
First they both passed the “eye-test,” appearing to be in great shape as they weighed in for today’s bout that will take place in Inglewood, California.
Former two-division world champion Bernard Hopkins, who promises that this fight will be his last, appears to have tapped into the fountain of youth with an appearance that belies his chronological age of 51.
Smith meanwhile looks to be taking his opportunity as a headlining fighter very seriously.
Which leads to the second thing the two have in common – each one’s resolution that they are the man to beat.
