He’s well known as the oldest champion to win a world title, defend a title and unify a weight division which he achieved at 49 years of age.

With a record 20 defenses of his world middleweight title he is widely considered to be a great, an opinion validated by The Ring Magazine who ranked him #3 on their list of the "10 best middleweight title holders of the last 50 years”.

The Pennsylvania native had a troubled youth with a criminal record for muggings which saw him being stabbed three times by the time he was thirteen years old.  Just four years later he was sentenced to 18 years in prison for racking up nine felonies.

 After serving just under five years in prison, Hopkins was released in 1988 and the passion for boxing he discovered in prison was used as his escape and his path to a better life.  He also converted to Islam during this period.

Hopkins fought many famous names such as De La Hoya, Calzaghe, Jones Jr and Trinidad amongst others.  

Despite the illustrious company Hopkins boxed with, he still racked up 55 wins from 65 fights with 32 knockouts to his name.
