“The Alien” Bernard Hopkins will try to prove father time wrong once again when he takes on WBO Light Heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev.

I expect Philly to represent and come out to Boardwalk Hall to see me make history once again.” Hopkins turns 50 years old in January and conventional wisdom says that he will show signs of age sooner or later but until he slows down you can never count out “The Alien.”
