Fans got a glimpse of what could be in store on Saturday night as Hopkins and Wright got into an altercation after Hopkins put his hand on Wright’s face in which Wright then shoved Hopkins back. Both fighters were separated and their entourages stormed the stage. The push may cost Hopkins ten percent ($300,000) of his paycheck as the Nevada State Athletic Commission stated that Hopkins will be punished for starting the melee. Wright will not be punished.
