Hipster bashing is as hilarious as it is popular, so TQBR thought we'd get in on the act with our list of boxing's biggest hipsters. Never mind the fact that "hipster" style has become so mainstream so as to become meaningless -- that just makes it easier.   Don't go punching any of these guys on national punch a hipster day, though.   Bernard Hopkins   B-Hop (pictured above) was into it before it was cool. That may be because B-Hop existed before cool. Or because the Philly legend is an evolutionary hangover who continues to roam the earth long after his contemporaries, the dinosaurs, have perished -- but the point still stands. B-Hop was living the hip-hop lifestyle on the streets of Philly before hip-hop even existed. Actually.     Style icon: Terry Richardson, the old hipster.   Sergio Martinez   A part of boxing fandom calls the Argentine middleweight champ "Zoolander" -- which may tell you all you need to know. His faux-hawk is a little bit 2003, though. Can't say much for his taste in suits, either. What pushes him over the edge is his former life as a cyclist - no doubt he'd still look at home zipping around Williamsburg on a fixie. Oh, and here he is wearing a scarf.   Style Icon: Ryan Gosling, the pretty boy.   Marcos Maidana     "What?" I hear you say. "Marcos Maidana is the hardest man in boxing, he's not a hipster!" In response, I would direct you to the above picture. Look at those specs. Not to mention his patchy tattoos. Mind you, when I called him a hipster on twitter, his response was "Que es hipster?" Which is exactly what a hipster would say...   Style icon: Adam from Girls, the angry one.   Manny Pacquiao   The beard. The moustache. The tattoos. Especially the tattoos -- come on, the guy may as well get an anchor and some swallows, move to Portland and call it a day. It could be that his tattoos are the kind of symbols of authentic masculinity that have been stolen and re-purposed for ironic use by hipsters. But frankly I don't believe it.   Style icon: Johnny Depp, that dude with the same facial hair as Manny Pacquiao.   Chad Dawson   This list needed a blipster (a black hipster, not a boxing hipster, duh). So Chad Dawson is filling in. Seriously, though, have you seen him at a post-fight presser? Dude dresses like Henry Kissinger.   Style Icon -- Tyler, the Creator, the one who tries a bit too hard.
