Watch Bernard Hopkins win the IBF title at 48 (Video)

Bernard Hopkins is the Randy Couture of boxing. Breaking his own record for oldest champ, he once again claims the Light Heavyweight title (175 pounds) with a win over formerly undefeated Tavoris Cloud.

It was only two years earlier that we saw Hopkins claim the title, destroying George Foreman’s record at the age of 46. It was a tough win over Jean Pascal, un-similar to last nights dominating victory over Cloud. Hopkins pulled off the unanimous decision sweep in the judges cards (116-112, 116-112, 117-111).

Hopkins landed 110 of 227 power punches, at a remarkable 48 percent, according to CompuBox statistics, leaving some to believe that the champ is somehow improving with age.

Looking forward to B-Hop’s next title defense, possibly in the summer.
