Bernard Hopkins Comments

While Bernard Hopkins didn’t speak at today’s Barclays Center press conference in Brooklyn, we do have some choice quotes from “The Executioner” from Tuesday’s workout.

Bernard Hopkins: “Tavoris Cloud might actually be hungrier than me. How often do you hear a fighter say that his opponent is hungrier than he is? I don’t need hunger. I’m motivated by my desire to prove that I’m different and that I can still silence the critics.

“You will have reason to be surprised on March 9. You’re not going to see a new Bernard Hopkins. I’m too old for that crap. I think what you will see is something different that I know I’m capable of doing. There is always a chance you will see something new in a fight. Especially in boxing. I’m going to avoid Cloud’s strengths and expose his weaknesses.” Click here for more, plus workout photos…
