Bernard Hopkins Disrespects Puerto Rican Flag

While promoting the Felix "Tito" Trinidad-Bernard Hopkins fight in July 2001, "The Executioner" infamously threw the Puerto Rican flag on the ground at the New York City stop of their promo run in July 2001. Days later, Hopkins threw the flag on the floor again, this time in Trinidad's native San Juan, Puerto Rico, drawing the ire of "Tito" and the entire nation. So disrepectful! Hopkins had to be literally rushed out the country. Years later, he said the September 2001 fight was already won back in the press conference. Wild scene. That Hopkins is a cerebral assassin!
