WATCH: Bernard Hopkins knocked out of the ring, literally

The great boxer, Bernard Hopkins, should have stayed away. At the age of 51, 25 months removed from his last fight, he really had no business being in the same ring as Joe Smith Jr. Saturday night.

What happened in the eighth round only confirmed this truth.

A legend, Hopkins came into this fight with a career record of 55-7-2, with 32 KOs. Unfortunately, he was not able to log victory No. 56 on Saturday night. At this point, we’re just hoping he’s okay.

Neither have we, Dan. Neither have we.
