At an age where most athletes are retired, coaching or lining their wallets signing autographs at the local mall, Bernard Hopkins is one knockout from history.
If the 46-year-old Hopkins defeats WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal on Saturday in Montreal, boxing's golden oldie will dethrone George Foreman as the oldest boxer to win a world title.
Foreman was 45 years, 10 months when he knocked out heavyweight champion Michael Moorer in 1994. Hopkins will be 46 years, four months and six days old in his rematch with Pascal.
Hopkins says "you're dealing with the guy that's not the norm."
Hopkins plans to convincingly defeat Pascal, then fight three more times and retire as the champion.
