In the Main Event from Los Angeles, at the Staples Center, Bernard Hopkins defended his WBC Light Heavyweight Championship against Chad Dawson. In round 1 Dawson seemed to have the advantage with his reach and speed over Hopkins but nonetheless it was a slow, uneventful round. In round 2 once again a strange finish in a Golden boy, HBO PPV event as Hopkins lunged toward Chad Dawson allowing Dawson to pick up and slam Hopkins to the mat similar to that seen in a MMA fight.

After the fall Hopkins laid flat on the canvas riling in pain holding his shoulder as it seemed he was telling the referee he could not continue. The referee did not rule the incident a foul thus giving Dawson a TKO victory because Hopkins was unable to continue due to an injury. Basketball lines

It was later reported 2 hours after the fight by Dan Rafael of ESPN that Hopkins did suffer a dislocation of the shoulder thus dispelling any speculation that he quit, rather it seems that he did suffer a legitimate injury.  This bazaar ending resemble the many strange and endings we have seen in boxing. So we decided to take a stroll down memory lane. Will fans ever forget, cannibal lector, Mike Tyson biting  the ear of Evander Holyfied,  or the famous surrender (No Mas!) by Roberto Duran to Sugar Ray Leonard.

There are so many more we can discuss but just the thought of Mike Tyson dining on an ear has made me seek a pain reliever. I guess that is what Bernard Hopkins is taking now after his embarrassing climax to a once storied career. Basketball spreads
