What more details do you need?

Bernard is pissed at Golden Boy because it's clear that they don't really want to do anymore business with him...and why would they considering they probably lose money any time they put together a card headlined by him. That being said, Bernard, being the natural hustler that he is, will try to con another promoter to pick up his tab in hopes of getting a few more lucrative low-risk/high-reward fights...so he figures why not go back to Don King, I guess.

Personally, I think the move is GREAT for Bernard's career because 1) DK rarely even puts on fights anymore and 2) DK doesn't even have many, if any, TV dates...therefore, the chances of me having to sit through one of his "masterful" and yet "boring" performances are slim to none. In my opinion, that's the best thing that could happen to Bernard.

Damn they fooled me into thinking BHOP held any weight over there.

Damn so what does that say about Mosley? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) If he doesn't beat Floyd he has to GTFO. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Gotta luv how Bernard has insinuated that GBP doesn't know how to promote black fighters...

Then you have DKP who always fakes his loyalty towards promoting the brothas...

If any two idiots in boxing were made for each other, it's Don King and Bernard Hopkins.

Golden Boy doesn't know? I thought that Bernard was President of Golden Boy East? Wouldn't that make it HIS job to promote those black fighters?

Yeah...always pointing the finger.

This has "great idea" written all over it.

Boring Bernard fighting for Don King with Bob Sheridan calling the action.

It's PERFECT!

I really like Hopkins, but I bet the $5million to come to Australia to fight Danny Green doesn't sound too bad now after all.

Was that how much he was getting offered?

sounds like an excellent idea if he wants his next fight to be in 2015 with tickets going on sale the night before the fight
