Muhammed Ali The Boxing Legend

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. Presently, you can score +175 on Shumenov.

The O/U on the spell is set at 9.5 rounds, with the over can be found in at -450 and the under
at +300. Hopkins by KO can be found in at +900, while Hopkins by choice will cost you -165.
Shumenov by KO hits the mark at +550, and Shumenov by choice lands at +335. The
chances 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 last year with a dominant beating of Karo
Murat in exactly what was an exciting (yes, interesting) and remarkable efficiency.

Hopkins, real to his word for when, was in fact looking for the knockout in that spell and what
resulted was a drubbing for the mandatory challenger Murat, who lost through extremely
large, unanimous scores.

"The Alien" is an profoundly skilled muay thai fighter who is still performing at a world class
level, easily among the 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 boxer in addition to
having almost unequaled ability and experience on top tier of the sport.

For some reason, Hopkins remains to keep his outstanding defensive and boxing capability
in addition to his slick counter punching capability, even in the face of tougher attacking and
surely younger challengers. The future Hall of Famer has broken the record for winning and
safeguarding a world title at such an advanced age ( vanquishing the former record holder
George Supervisor) and thinking about the performances he has been placing on, regardless
of his age, I think it is silly to raise his age as a considerable element at this time.

Bernard was clipped a bit more typically versus Murat ( most likely due to, as he himself
stated, taking more risks in an effort to notch a stoppage) and was likewise shocked and
dropped by Jean Pascal but there is absolutely nothing to recommend that his brain is mushy
or anything but finely aged!

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

Beibut was at one point a very promising prospect in the sport and he has built up a
unexpected quantity of decent experience in spite of his low variety of spells as a
professional, with wins over Montell Griffin, Vyacheslav Uzelkov, Danny Santiago and
Enrique Ornelas within his 15-fight career.

Stylistically Shumenov is a good boxer with suitable boxing power however he tends to do
his best work when playing the role of assailant. Shumenov does a good job of packing some
power into his hook and right hand and is fairly technically sound, but he does have some
clear shortcomings that have actually triggered him to struggle a bit in the past.

For beginners, aside from being a fairly sluggish fighter as a whole, Shumenov's protective
capabilities are not completely impressive. Both his lack of speed and defense were on
display in his two extremely close fights with Gabriel Campillo and his protective liabilities
were exploited by Vyacheslav Uzelkov throughout their battle (Shumenov even struck the
canvas in the preliminary).

The reality that this fight is even occurring I think is a testimony to smart promotion for
Bernard Hopkins, who will take a WBA Super World and IBA title from Shumenov with a
triumph on Saturday night.

I have little doubt that once again, money is can be found in on the underdog Shumenov not
because of Shumenov's abilities and real possibilities of victory on Saturday (which are not
very high at all), but rather because of Hopkins' alarming looking age.
Hopkins holds practically every advantage in this fight aside from raw punching power,
however in that same vein of thought, Bernard is the far more durable fighter, therefore I
doubt we will see him be from another location rattled versus his young challenger. Yet
another dominant and excellent success is likely in the cards for "The Alien", who puts on a
dazzling performance Last part should be located at the bottom of the short article as listed
