“Shadowy and intimidating, the mind of Bernard Hopkins is like a Gothic castle whose cellars and spires store dangerous knowledge that will lead to your demise. It is best to remain outside its walls.
This is true to a degree. As a man and as a boxer, Hopkins’s greatest asset is his brain, and throughout his twenty-eight year career he’s out-thought men outfitted with greater physical gifts. Equally true is the cult of brilliance Hopkins has fostered about himself. His self-aggrandizing, which is consistent and vigorous, is as much a psychological tool as it is a plea for attention. By constantly talking about how smart, experienced, and wise he is, he manufactures the idea he’s omniscient and will inevitably find and exploit your weakness. Opponents who subscribe to this myth are doomed before the opening bell.” — from “Boxing’s Most Ruthless Baron” by Eliott McCormick
