Last fight: TKO 9 BY JOE SMITH, DECEMBER 18, 2017 (Controversy reigns)

Bernard Humphrey Hopkins Jr. (born January 15, 1965) is an American professional boxer who has held multiple world titles at middleweight and light heavyweight. He reigned as middleweight champion from 1994 to 2005, successfully compiling a record 20 title defenses during that period. He won the IBF middleweight title in 1994 and later unified the division when he added the WBA (Super), WBC, Ring magazine, and lineal titles in 2001.

He also became the first male boxer to simultaneously hold world titles by all four major boxing sanctioning bodies when he won the WBO title in 2004 (Riddick Bowe was the first to hold heavyweight titles by all four, but in separate reigns, from 1992 to 1995). In 2011, The Ring ranked Hopkins number three on their list of the "10 best middleweight title holders of the last 50 years."
