August 10, 2012 – INDIO, CA -Known as “The Executioner,” future Hall of Fame professional boxer Bernard Hopkins will greet fans at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. prior to the August 24 edition of ShoBox: The New Generation featuring Coachella’s Randy Caballero vs. Manuel Roman in the main event and Michael Perez vs. Fidel Maldonado Jr. in the co-main event.
Age-defying, record-breaking and inspirational are all words used to describe Bernard Hopkins. Following an incredible 20 consecutive successful defenses of his middleweight world championship, Hopkins captured the light heavyweight world championship at the age of 41 in 2006. In May of 2011 at 46 years-old, he became the oldest fighter in the history of boxing to win a major world championship when he defeated 28 year-old Jean Pascal for the WBC Light Heavyweight World Championship, breaking George Foreman’s mark set in 1994.
“I am so happy I won [the titles] and showed the world that if you are disciplined and maintain your physical and mental health, anything is possible at any age,” said Hopkins. “I just hope my victory inspired people watching the fight to take a good look at their own lifestyle and to never stop believing that they can be physically fit and emotionally happy throughout their entire lives.”
