LAS VEGAS (AP) - Forty-two-year-old Bernard Hopkins ended Winky Wright's seven and a-half-year unbeaten streak with a unanimous decision in their 170-pound fight at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. He hadn't lost in 13 fights since December of 1999.
The win is another remarkable achievement for Hopkins, who retired last year after a career highlighted by 21 straight middleweight title defenses and last year's shocking win over Antonio Tarver. He abandoned retirement after a few months.
