Seemingly ageless former world champion Bernard Hopkins (51-5-2, 32 KOs) celebrates his 46th birthday today. Thus far, “The Executioner” has shown few signs of slowing down as he gave WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal all he could handle last month. In 2011, Hopkins is in line for a WBC-mandated immediate rematch with Pascal and if he should emerge victorious, he would become the oldest man ever to win a major world title, breaking the record of George Foreman. He could well be the betting favorite going into the return match. Happy Birthday Champ!
