Hopkins V Shumenov Forecasts!

Saturday we are treated to a light heavyweight spell in between Bernard "The Alien" Hopkins,
(54-6-2, 32KOs) and Beibut Shumenov, (14-1, 9KOs) live from the DC Armory, Washington,
District of Columbia.

Hopkins opened as the betting favorite in the battle and now sits at around -225 at most
books after his line dropped. Currently, you can score +175 on Shumenov.

The O/U on the bout is set at 9.5 rounds, with the over being available in at -450 and the
under at +300. Hopkins by KO is available in at +900, while Hopkins by decision will cost you
-165. Shumenov by KO hits the mark at +550, and Shumenov by decision lands at +335. The
odds of the bout being proclaimed a draw stand at +1800.

Still rebounding from a boring decision loss at the hands of Chad Dawson in 2012, Bernard
Hopkins extended his win streak to 2 in a row late in 2012 with a dominant beating of Karo
Murat in what was an exciting (yes, amazing) and outstanding efficiency.

Hopkins, real to his word for when, was actually looking for the knockout in that bout and
exactly what resulted was a drubbing for the compulsory challenger Murat, who lost through
very wide, consentaneous ratings.

"The Alien" is an immensely gifted fighter who is still carrying out at a world class level, easily
one of the very best in the sport today, even at the remarkable age of 49. Pushing 50 years
old, Hopkins is still efficient in being the superiorly conditioned competitor in addition to
having nearly exceptional ability and experience at the top tier of the sport.

For some reason, Hopkins remains to maintain his impressive defensive and boxing
capability along with his slick counter punching capability, even in the face of harder striking
and assuredly more youthful opponents. The future Hall of Famer has actually climaxed for
winning and defending a world title at such an advanced age (beating out the former record
holder George Supervisor) and thinking about the efficiencies he has actually been placing
on, in spite of his age, I believe it is silly to bring up his age as a considerable factor at this

Bernard was clipped a bit more typically versus Murat ( most likely due to, as he himself said,
taking more dangers in an attempt to notch a stoppage) and was likewise shocked and
stopped by Jean Pascal however there is absolutely nothing to recommend that his brain is
mushy or anything however finely matured!

Beibut Shumenov just recently demolished formerly unbeaten Tamas Kovacs four months
earlier in Shumenov's first and only battle of 2013. Shumenov has won 6 straight because
suffering the only loss of his career so far at the hands of Gabriel Campillo back in 2009, a
loss that was later on avenged through split choice.

Beibut was at one point a really promising prospect in the sport and he has actually
accumulated a unusual amount of good experience in spite of his low variety of bouts as a
professional, with wins over Montell Griffin, Vyacheslav Uzelkov, Danny Santiago and
Enrique Ornelas within his 15-fight profession.

Stylistically Shumenov is a suitable fighter with decent punching power however he tends to
do his finest work when playing the function of aggressor. Shumenov does a excellent job of
packing some power into his hook and right hand and is relatively technically sound, but he
does have some clear imperfections that have actually triggered him to struggle a little bit in
the past.

For beginners, aside from being a relatively slow-moving fighter as a whole, Shumenov's
protective capabilities are not completely excellent. Both his lack of speed and defense were
on display in his 2 really close fights with Gabriel Campillo and his protective liabilities were
made use of by Vyacheslav Uzelkov throughout their fight (Shumenov even struck the
canvas in the preliminary).

The fact that this battle ares taking place I think is a testament to smart advertising for
Bernard Hopkins, who will steal a WBA Super World and IBA title from Shumenov with a
triumph on Saturday night.

I have slightly doubt that once again, money is can be found in on the underdog Shumenov
not because of Shumenov's capabilities and real chances of victory on Saturday (which are
not extremely high at all), but rather because of Hopkins' alarming looking age.
Hopkins holds nearly every advantage in this fight aside from raw boxing power, however in
that exact same vein of thought, Bernard is the much more long lasting boxer, therefore I
doubt we will see him be remotely rattled against his young opposition. Yet someone else
dominant and excellent victory is likely in the cards for "The Alien", who puts on a fantastic
