Out Of This World
By William Trillo

It's hard to argue with a 49 year old fighter who just unified the title by defeating a 30 year old champion...so I won't. Bernard Hopkins is doing the unthinkable and although no one will ever mistake Beibut Shumenov for a world class threat, it's safe to say Hopkins has created a very special place for himself in Boxing's Hall of Fame. (Don't ask me to define Special).

Now we are looking forward to an out of this world, (well really just out of this country), title unifier when Hopkins travels to Montreal to take on another champion, this time it's Adonis Stevenson. Having already been very successful in Quebec as he went north of the border to defeat Jean Pascal, Bernard will be happy to make the journey to take on Adonis.

Stevenson vs. Hopkins Seems Almost Inevitable
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL – A few minutes after his win by split decision against Beibut Shumenov (14-1-0) Saturday evening in the ring of the D.C. Armory Arena in Washington, Bernard Hopkins mentioned his strong desire to face the Montréal southpaw Adonis Stevenson to unify the WBC, WBA and IBF light heavyweight world titles.

The fight Hopkins-Shumenov was organized to unify the WBA and IBF titles. The WBA was held by the fighter from Kazakhstan. Stevenson (23-1-0) expressed himself many times his real desire to face Hopkins since his last bout, disputed November 30th at the Québec City Colisée, when he stopped the British Tony Bellew (21-2-1) in less than six rounds.

  Alien Nation

Fans were treated to a solid night of boxing in Washington ,DC last night, in front of 6,823 fight fans Bernard Hopkins made history, Peter Quillin stayed the course and Shawn Porter took the torch from Paulie Malignaggi.

In the main event of the evening Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins won an unpopular split decision over a game Beibut Shumenov. The decision was unpopular because most at ringside had Hopkins winning comfortably. Shumenov who trains himself could have used a guiding voice in his corner as he could not seem to avoid the right hand of Hopkins. I gave the first four rounds to Shumenov who pressed the action while Hopkins, master of the sport that he is, was content to study his opponent and figure out what he could do. Boy did he figure it out, I had Hopkins winning the next eight rounds with very little trouble even knocking Shumenov down with that same right hand in the eleventh round.

  Hopkins Schools Shumenov Through 12;
One Bizarre Scorecard Should Be Investigated
Bernard Hopkins (now 55-6-2, 1 NC, 1ND, 32 KO's) unified the WBO and IBF Light Heavyweight Title with another brilliant performance against Beibut Shumenov. Shumenov was a title holder by default after receiving gift wins in fights he did not truly win. Therefore Hopkins put an end to that, winning nearly all 12 rounds, and scoring a knockdown in the 11th with a big right. The fight was completely one-sided, but oddly enough, one judge, Gustavo Padilla (who also scored Garcia vs. Herrera a draw which received a lot of scratching heads), had it 114-113 for Shumenov and should be banned from ever scoring a fight again. The other two had it correctly scored at 116-111 for Hopkins. Shumenov drops to 15-2, 9 KO's.

  Porter Annihilates Malignaggi In 4  
Shawn Porter (now 24-0-1, 15 KO's) retained the IBF Welterweight Title with a complete 4-round destruction over Paulie Malignaggi. From the opening round to the brutal end, this fight was fought at a high pace. Both men were in the center of the ring trading shots just seconds in. Malignaggi would suffer a cut on his left cheek from a jab early on, but it wouldn't matter as the power he faced later would be his demise. In round 3, Porter landed some lunging left hooks that snapped Malignaggi's head back and had him holding from going down.

In round 4, two jabs followed by a big right sent Malignaggi down and hurt. Malignaggi tried to hold on after getting up, but another big combo and right hand sent Malignaggi's head back while against the ropes again, and down to the canvas a second time. Maliganggi laid under the ropes and the fight was immediately called off. Malignaggi drops to 35-6 with 7 KO's.

  Quillin Outworks Konecny Through 12  
Peter Quillin (now 31-0, 22 KO's) won a 12-round unanimous decision over tough Lukas Konecny to retain the WBO Middleweight Title. Quillin was simply the busier fighter, busting up the face of Konecny over every round. Konecny constantly moved forward, but did not let his hands go enough, and when he finally would his punches had little to no effect, despite connecting flush with a few solid left hooks. Final scores were 120-108 and 119-109 twice. Konecny drops to 50-5 with 23 KO's.

By William Trillo

As I walked into The La Habra Boxing Club this week it was my intention to interview Light Heavyweight Enrique Ornelas as he put the finishing touches on his training camp as he is preparing to take on the undefeated Thomas Williams Jr. on ESPN next Thursday night.

For Ornelas this is a fight that he was brought in as the veteran for a young up and comer to make his mark on by getting a victory on national TV. Ornelas is well aware of his position and his intention is to ruin Williams coming out party.

Pacquiao: Now that Manny just made mince meat out of an in his prime and undefeated champion in Timothy Bradley we can dispell any notion that Pacman's career is over. For those of you who thought Manny had lost his love for fighting all you need to do is look at the enthusiasm on his face as he is reigning blows off the former champs over-sized dome.

Really? You are seriously pulling out the "I hurt my leg" card?

Line of the night goes to "Slapsie Maxie" for his quick retort to Bradley after he stated he hurt his leg during the fight. Kellerman replies, "Were you wearing socks?" Now that's improv at it's finest! Click Here For Full Blog
