Bernard Hopkins wants Floyd Mayweather's Friend, Rapper 50 Cent!

If there was one boxer for sure that I would like to see a life movie made out of, it would be Bernard Hopkins. I love that bastard! Hopkins who we all know as simply amazing inside the ring, has lived a life that would make for an interesting and inspirational movie.

From running on the hardcore streets of Philly, to being locked up in prison at a very young age and then moving on to be a legend in the professional world of Boxing, no one can deny the road Hopkins has traveled. It is a story of man beating all odds for his piece of the American dream.

So if a movie was made on the colorful life of B-Hop... who do you think Hopkins would want to play him?

In a recent article on ESPN, Hopkins stated he wanted Rap Star, 50 Cent to play him. 50 Cent who is a huge music star, has also made a great transition to an actor. 50 Cent is known to many Boxing fans as a close friend to Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr.

In regards to who he'd want to play him in a movie, Hopkins stated: "I want 50 Cent."

Hopkins feels 50 Cent has "the swagger" to play him and that 50 Cent "does not look approachable but he really is." Hopkins believes that 50 Cent understands his life because the two have similar backgrounds.

Honestly if you ask me, I think 50 Cent is by far the best man on the planet to play Hopkins. As an actor, 50 Cent really is amazing. He throws himself into his work and I'd expect his portrayal of Hopkins would come off as amazing. Plus 50 Cent has always made it known he is a huge fan of Boxing. As I already stated, he is close friends with Floyd Mayweather Jr., but I didn't mention that 50 has done a little boxing himself in the past. And for cryin out loud already!!! Your not sold yet?!.... 50 has a bullet wound in the face and makes it look good... That's basically our Hopkins! Minus the bullet wound in the face... but Hopkins has plently of serious wounds, including being stabbed in the back twice and once near his heart, which lead him to almost bleed to death.

YEP... I want the Movie!
