A chance to fight in boxing's "mecca" comes Saturday when 19-year-old Dusty Hernandez-Harrison – a rising undefeated welterweight out of Washington, D.C. and maybe the next big thing in boxing – steps into the ring at Madison Square Garden to face Josh Torres for something called the World Boxing Council Youth Welterweight world championship.
The former middleweight champion of the world is in training, even at the age of 43, even though he officially retired from the ring more than two years ago.
Bernard Hopkins is more grill master than grill pitchman, willing to fire it up for hunks of organic chicken or fresh salmon. Maybe some buffalo.
He would go on to defeat Trinidad in a unification bout to become the undisputed champion _ a proud moment he said he never really got to truly enjoy because of all the horror and sadness leading to the fight.
"That was a huge night," he said. "In a good way and a bad way I'm part of history."
