Boxing Legends Hoodies
On September 29, 2001 in Madison Square Garden, billed as 'And Then There Was One', a boxing match took place between WBC & IBF middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins and WBA middleweight champion Félix Trinidad to unify all three titles and decide the first undisputed middleweight champion since Marvin Hagler. Trinidad, considered the pre-fight favorite, was several years younger and was riding a wave of popularity that made him the most sought-after name in the sport. Hopkins owned his own streak of 12 successful title defenses leading up to the bout. It was one of the most anticipated bouts in decades, and it did not fail to live up to expectations. Hopkins, nicknamed The Executioner, entered the ring in unforgettable fashion wearing a red leather executioner's hood with a stark X prominently on the front, accompanied with an American flag scarf. The fight would end in a TKO in the 12th round with Hopkins battering the exhausted Trinidad into submission with an electric flurry of power punches. Hopkins would continue to fight for years finally retiring at the age of 51 in 2016.
