Bernard Humphrey Hopkins, a fifty-two-year-old American professional boxer, had a truly legendary life that began with him being imprisoned at the age of eighteen, but he ascended like a true fighter in real life and in the ring to acquire a stature in boxing that only a few have achieved. His financial standing grew in lockstep with his popularity. He won 55 of the 67 fights he took part in, including 32 knockout victories and only eight losses. He set a record by successfully defending his world middleweight title twelve times.
His childhood was spent in crime, and he was imprisoned when he was 18 years old. He was born on January 15, 1965, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. His five years in prison served as an indoctrination into the world of boxing: upon his release, he chose to abandon his previous life and pursue a career in boxing. He never looked back after that, and thus began his great boxing career.
Bernard Hopkins’ acting career spanned from 1988 to 2016. Hopkins has had a phenomenally successful career spanning nearly three decades of highly competitive international boxing, a difficult sport that requires true grit and dedication to achieve what he has. English Fisher and Naazim Richardson were his coaches, although both reported he preferred to work hard on his own without being prompted. He never looked back after losing his first fight to Clinton Mitchell in October 1988. After a one-and-a-half-year hiatus, he returned with a vengeance to defeat Greig Page in 1990. From there, he went on to win twenty significant fights in the middleweight division, a sort of record. He also became the first boxer to win world titles from all four world boxing governing organizations at this time in his career. There were two back-to-back defeats in 2005 by Jermain Taylor and Welsh star Joe Calzaghe in his career, but his passion to boxing was too great to be shattered by a few losses or the brutal blows he had to take at the top level of competition. He went on to win a world title in 2006, and at the age of 49, he became the oldest boxer in history to win a world title.
He had a serene, loving, and caring family life outside of the spotlight of his boxing career. In addition to his wife, Jeanette Hopkins, the couple has two children together.
