Hopkins Wants Maskaev!

The New York Daily News is reporting that Bernard Hopkins is considering coming out of retirement to possibly step back into the ring. Reports state that he’s looking to fight WBC Heavyweight Champion Oleg Maskaev sometime late next year. Hopkins feels that he is the only boxer who can save the Heavyweight division for America and says that a fight would become possible if he could bulk up to 200 pounds. He looks to get in contact with trainer Mackie Shilstone, the same trainer who bulked up Roy Jones Jr. when he fought Heavyweight slob John Ruiz. Whether Maskaev is still champion by the time Hopkins is ready for Maskaev is questionable; Maskaev has a title defense in December and a mandatory fight after against Sam Peter.
