HOPKINS CONTINUES TO CONQUER FATHER TIME
By Rick Evans

Bernard Hopkins scored another victory over father time on Saturday night at the Armory in Washington DC, unifying the IBF and WBA light heavyweight championships by putting on a virtuoso performance in what was ridiculously called a split decision victory over Beibut Shumenov. The first three rounds lacked volume as both fighters exchanged jabs and took their time doing it. The action picked up in round four as Hopkins found the key to what would take him to victory, the lead right hand, picking Shumenov apart as he was coming in. The middle rounds followed an identical pattern with Shumenov throwing one punch at a time and getting drilled with the lead right hand for his troubles. Round eleven was the most exciting round of the fight as Shumenov attempted to pick up the pace  and paid for it with a counter overhand right that put him down for the only official knockdown of the fight. The knockdown seemed to take the fight out of Shumeov as he reverted to his prior strategy of following Hopkins, but only throwing one punch at a time.  Judges Dave Moretti (116-111) and Jerry Roth (116-11) were the only two judges who were paying attention. Guestavo Padilla (113-114) scored the fight for Shumenov and at best had a very bad night at the office or at worst should fall to the ranks of CJ Ross with that disgraceful scorecard. Nothing should take away from the victory of Bernard Hopkins, who now holds two of the three major world title belts at light heavyweight and is targeting the man who holds the third and is considered to be the lineal world champion, Adonis Stevenson. Hopkins moves to 55-6-2 32KO with the victory and at 49 becomes the oldest man to unify two world title belts. Shumenov falls to 14-2 9KO with the loss.

With the win Hopkins unifies the WBA and IBF light heavyweight titles. Official scores were 116-111 x2 Hopkins and a ridiculous 114-113, Shumenov from Gustavo Padilla.

 DAILY BREAD WEDNESDAY EDITION: (4-16-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

PAcman vs Bradley II recap and more....

Breadman,
How would you grade Manny's performance. I thought he did really well. He made the right adjustments after the first couple of rounds and fought a smart fight. I don't put to much importance on him not KOing his opponents. Most fighters later on in age have to fight a different style.
your thoughts.
Shamil
Bread’s Response: Manny fought well. He’s a tough match up for Tim because Tim is a flailer and Manny is a puncher. So in the exchanges Tim has to draw back a little where Manny can punch from the shoulders. I watched the 1st fight carefully and I honestly believe Manny was not in shape although he threw more punches in that fight than he did in the second fight.

July, who doubled as a main event boxer and promoted the card in front of a packed house at the Patapsco Arena in Baltimore, MD, battled a highly regarded foe but didn’t get the result he was looking for. For much of the bout, there was excessive holding along with multiple headbutts, throwing both fighters off their game. Ultimately, neither July nor Graves, 9-0-2, was able to take advantage in a bout that could best be described as a power struggle.
