How do you decide a name for a new pet?
As a child I wanted to name my German Shepard after my favorite rapper, Tupac Shakur. However my mother had other intentions when she selected the name Cameron after the actor Kirk Cameron. I know tragic.
Other people with a little more sense than me and my family go for more traditional names. Since celebrities have extravagant names for their children, I would never suspect an entertainer to pick something simple, especially if you’re a part of the Kardashian clan.
However that’s exactly what they did, picked a simple name for their new pet, but there is a twist.
On Tuesday Los Angeles Clippers power forward Lamar Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian added a new bundle of joy to their life, after adopting a baby boxer. According to Khole’s Twitter account, her Lammy Lamar got them a baby boxer, which they named “Bernard Hopkins.”

Hopkins has recently became the oldest athlete in American sports to win a major championship, so I am under the impression this was a way to honor the respectable boxer. The family calls the four legged cutie “B- Hopper and/or B” for short. Although I was going to touch on the fact Hopkins is old and a puppy is well, not old, the name B-Hopper is cute, so I won’t rain on the Kardashian-Odom parade.
Maybe in dog years the puppy is the same age as Hopkins, or maybe Lammy (Lamar Odom) is simply a huge fan of Hopkins. Whatever the reason, that’s a cute puppy.
BEST OF MAXIM
Bernard Hopkins has released an official statement in which he addresses his next potential opponent, following his triumphant performance over Tavoris Cloud, and the continuing bolstering of his status as one of the best over-40 fighters of all-time. Take a look at what Hopkins has to say about who he could be fighting next below.

There are numerous champions...
Considering The Ring, WBA, WBC and super middleweight champ a “protégé,” active prizefighting icon Bernard Hopkins said he “would never fight Andre Ward.” Hopkins (53-6-3-2, 32 KOs) unanimously outscored Tavoris “Thunder” Cloud to earn the IBF light heavyweight title and, again, become the oldest fighter to ever win a major world belt on Saturday night at the Barclays...
The honors keep on coming in for the legendary Bernard Hopkins. First, he breaks his own record as the oldest boxing champion of all-time by handily defeating Tavoris Cloud via Unanimous Decision. It was a win which helped him score revenge on an old rival, Don King, and further establish his legacy as one of the best old fighters in boxing's history.
Now, there's even more...
If spoil sports aren't your flavor, perhaps a pair of refreshing counter left hook knockouts from the past weekend can cleanse the palate? Edgar Sosa did in Ulises Solis with one in a meaningful flyweight bout, finally scoring a victory over his thrice-rival. Junior lightweight Argenis Mendez, too, got his revenge in a rematch against Juan Carlos Salgado. It was the snazzier...
Bernard Hopkins has never been a taciturn figure, so that he would crow loudly over taking Tavoris Cloud's IBF belt and pushing his own record as boxing's oldest world champion forward a notch isn't surprising. However, only boxing fans with long memories and a keen interest in the sport might have understood why he was boasting about "putting Don King out of business...
The Top 5 "Over 40" Fighters of All-Time
Bernard Hopkins’ technical schooling of Tavoris Cloud, a reigning titleholder who was more than 17 years his junior, was significant. I was among those who figured Cloud, with Father Time in his corner vs. B-Hop, would be too much for the ageless “Executioner”. However, it appears Father Time apparently has as much trouble...
