Bernard Hopkins speaks; What he wants from Roy Jones Jr
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (Aug 5, 2008)  
On October 18th at the Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall, Bernard Hopkins returns to take on Kelly Pavlik. Hopkins still wants to fight on after Pavlik with the hopes of a rematch with Roy Jones Jr. Hopkins lost to Jones Jr. back in 1993.

Hopkins doesn't plan on his fight with Pavlik to be his last, recently telling Bernard Fernandez of the Philadelphia Daily News: "I think people still want to see me and Roy Jones Jr. before we both head off to the retirement home." Hopkins added that he thinks the Jones Jr. fight will be his grand exit.

Hopkins who feels he has gotten raw deals in his losses to Joe Calzaghe and Jermain Taylor, jokingly added to the publication that if his fights keep ending the way they have been: "You might see me around for the next 10 years."
