Bernard Hopkins Becomes Oldest World Champion

Bernard Hopkins outpointed Beibut Shumenov to win the IBA light-heavyweight title on Saturday night, becoming the oldest boxer, at 49, to unify major titles and also rewriting his record of the oldest boxer to win a major title. Here, BET.com takes a look back at Hopkins's best victories over the age of 40. Don't call B-Hop 49 years OLD. Call him 49 years YOUNG. Respect to the future first-ballot Hall of Famer!
