Hopkins got knocked out of the ring!
Bernard Hopkins lost the final fight of his career on Saturday, falling to Joe Smith Jr. via TKO. The ending was strange, coming in the eighth round when Smith knocked Hopkins out of the ring. Rules say that Hopkins had 20 seconds to get into the ring but he was assisted outside the ring and after a long delay, the fight was called in favor of Smith. Officially, Hopkins fell out of the ring and suffered an injury after a legal blow from Smith, giving Smith a TKO victory.
