Hopkins gets revenge, beats Jones after 17-year wait

compiled by megasportsnews.com staff

“The Executioner” Bernard Hopkins finally got the revenge he had been wanting for 17 years, beating Roy Jones, Jr in a rematch boxing match at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Two of their generation’s greatest boxers just might be ended their careers together Saturday night in Las Vegas hospitals after such a grueling fight.

Hopkins won a unanimous decision in this long-delayed rematch with the 41-year-old Jones, avenging his loss in the famed champions’ first bout in 1993.

Both fighters often showed glimpses of their former selves, the 45-year-old Hopkins (51-5-1, 32 KOs) dominated nearly every round of the light heavyweight fight filled with tactics and a mutual hatred and dislike for one another.

With his fifth win in six fights since 2005, Bernard Hopkins settled an old score against Jones (54-7), who beat him by a clear-cut decision on May 22, 1993, when both fighters were still on the brink of  outstanding careers.

Despite his advancing age, Hopkins has continued to win but Jones has now lost six of his last 11 fights, while falling quickly from his platform of being the most dominant fighter of the 1990′s.

Judges Don Trella and Glenn Trowbridge scored it 117-110 for Hopkins. Dave Moretti scored it 118-109 for Hopkins. The Associated Press scored it 119-108 and 11 of 12 rounds in favor of Hopkins.

No matter the outcome, everybody in boxing associated with the fight,  said both fighters need to retire before the get hurt seriously from eroding skills.
