Bernard Hopkins, WBC & Ring Magazine Light Heavyweight World Champion:
“I’m a throw back. I live in a time where it is so microwavable that there is no time to cook, season, chop or marinate any more. I’m the last of a dying [expletive] breed.
“They were calling me old when I beat Trinidad 11 years ago.
“Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will always motivate me.
“I have proven who I am. The reason I’m here is because Dawson didn’t do what he should have against Pascal.
“My biggest motivation has been adversity.
“I don’t drink or smoke and if some is drinking or smoking around me I get up. It’s called discipline.
“This fight all you hear is ‘Chad is bigger. Chad is stronger.’ Not that he is more talented.”
