Bernard Hopkins vs. Beibut Shumenov: Preview and Prediction for Title Fight
Associated Press

Bernard Hopkins may be 49 years old, but when he steps through the ropes on Saturday night, he'll be attempting to carve out another slice of boxing history.

Hopkins, the IBF light heavyweight champion, will face WBA 175-pound champion Beibut Shumenov at the DC Armory in Washington, D.C., for a chance to become the oldest fighter in history to unify titles in his weight division.

The Alien has already twice become the oldest man to win a world championship, breaking his own record last March by defeating Tavoris Cloud at the Barclays Center, and he'll—once again—be facing a younger, hard-hitting champion in his prime.

Can B-Hops defy Father Time once more? Or will the Kazakh warrior Shumenov be the one who finally sends him packing?

Read on for your complete preview and prediction of Hopkins vs. Shumenov!
