‘Hopkins at 50’ Premieres On Comcast SportsNet January 14


vibe-bernard-hopkinsTomorrow, January 14, Comcast SportsNet celebrates the life of legendary boxer Bernard Hopkins on the eve of his 50th birthday.  “Hopkins at 50,” hosted by Neil Hartman, is a 30-minute sit down interview that looks back on his early years, as well as what is ahead for the boxer as he approaches the half-century mark.

In the interview, Hopkins is very reflective as he talks about his early years that played a critical role in his development in the ring and about his road to success, including defending his World Middleweight Championship 20 times during a 12-year period.  The program also includes rarely seen video of Hopkins boxing at Graterford prison.

Bernard walks down memory lane as he returns to Germantown where he grew up and relives some of his most memorable press conferences.  Viewers will also get a glimpse of his incredible training routine that keeps him in top shape to keep boxing at his age. 

“2015 is a year that whatever band, group, player that you wish you could see one more time, no matter the era, I’m that person you want to see in 2015,” said Hopkins, who hopes to step in the ring at a couple more times this year.
