Prospect Jesse Hart Picks Hopkins By KO over Kovalev


    hart300Super-Middleweight contender Jesse Hart has picked his fellow Philadelphian Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KOs) to defeat Russian Sergio “Krusher” Kovalev (25-0-1 23 KOs) by stoppage in their upcoming fight. “The kid (Kovalev) makes too many mistakes, Bernard Hopkins has the highest IQ in boxing right now,”  he said.

    Hart  pointed out some of much Bernard’s older performances as reasoning for believing he will win via stoppage but Hopkins is only a few months shy of his 50th Birthday and hasn’t had a KO win since stopping the much smaller Oscar De La Hoya with a 9th round body shot, a whole decade ago.
