Donovan McNabb: Bizarre Outburst from Bernard Hopkins Still Puzzling
One Day Later, Still No Explanation Why Hopkins Blasted McNabb
Bernard Hopkins must have decided he needed to make a lot of headlines and drum up a lot of interest for his fight May 21 with Jean Pascal, because there really was no other reason for Hopkins to rip Donovan McNabb apart completely unsolicited.
Hopkins, an avid Eagles fan, had the press in to watch him workout in the lead-up to his fight, and just went off on McNabb, claiming he was not tough enough or black enough. To what end those comparisons would serve also is completely unknown.
The bigger issue at this point is what, if anything, McNabb does about it. His publicist said he would have no comment on the issue, which is to be expected, and just another example of McNabb taking the high road, something he is known for.
But that is not any fun. I want to see McNabb lose it, rip his shirt off and challenge Hopkins to a ladder match.
It does not matter McNabb is a football player and Hopkins is a boxer, a ladder match between the two would be one of the biggest draws in the history of sports entertainment, and you can bet Vince McMahon is sitting in his office right now trying to dream up a way of making it happen.
Hopkins can not challenge McNabb to a throw-off because McNabb would win. Likewise, McNabb is not going to get in the ring with Hopkins because Hopkins would destroy him in the first round.
So the only answer is a wrestling match complete with tables, ladders and chairs. Book it at Summer Slam, the NFL probably will be locked out anyway.
