Bernard Hopkins is one of the hardest working human beings on the planet and as he approaches 50 years of age, you can't help but to marvel at the fact he still look as if he's 20 years younger. It's not the fountain of youth, it's just discipline, once you have that the structure of life becomes easier.
Many feel that the balance of Hopkins personal life, strengthens his professional life. You don't hear about Bhop in nightclubs at 3am, with hundreds of groupie women hanging on his shoulder. Husband, father and fighter, Bernard may be looked as a frugal, and distant, but nevertheless you will never find a more open and opinionated person, who's valves outweigh his faults. I have never really been a fan of the way Bernard Hopkins fight in the ring, I always though he was just to dirty in the ring, but I do admire the measure of him as a man, one who makes themselves, and dare to be great, by their own standards.
