Boxer Bernard Hopkins Has No Respect For Faggy Sports Like Mixed Martial Arts

Know what’s great about boxing? There are never any balls swinging around in your face like there are in mixed martial arts! But you would like swinging balls, wouldn’t you? Philladelphia boxer Bernard Hopkins (aka the Executioner), who’s been MIA from the ring for 14 months as he cashes checks from Golden Boy Promotions, doesn’t need those homoerotics, which is why he’s slamming competing sports like MMA and Ultimate Fighting Championship, where dudes are, apparently, running around in panties.

“Can you see me sitting ringside with two men with panties on?! … I understand if there’s 90 percent women that would show to those things, but I can’t see a grown man sitting there, with a couple of guy friends, watching two guys iwth panties on wrestling, sweating … that’s just my opinion.” And then his publicist steers the conversation elsewhere. Smart girl.

    I’m not a fan of either boxing, nor MMA, or the UFC–something about two people punching the shit out of each other tends to bother me. However, I’d like to see Mr. Hopkins get into a ring with Royce Gracie and see whom walks out first.

  • hyhybt

    He should make comments like that about the UFC folks to their faces, preferably when there are no witnesses.

    my gay friend was going GAGA over MMA. Because of some of the positions the guys would get into it as they are kicking the crap out of each other. Meanwhile, I’m all… that’s brutal, I can’t watch this. My point is, it’s all perspective.

    If Bernard has no respect, I do think he needs to jump into the ring. I’m pretty sure he’ll get his ass kicked. Ok. I know nothing of him and his skills, maybe he’s like Tyson and with one punch can knock someone out. But that MMA stuff looks pretty nasty.

    And I have no respect for bigots.

    Wonder if this guy feels the same way about the wrestlers at the olympics. There is nothing more homoerotic than watching young, hot (well, sometimes they’re hot) guys in tight clothing dry hump each other and yet they train for years to be at that level and are amazingly talented at what they do. Guess we should discount their hard work ’cause it’s not manly enough. Whatever.

    UFC/MMA is fuckin’ hot.

    Hopkins: keeping it real.

  • Captain Slappy

    Hopkins say: I might be Black, but at least I ain’t Gay!
    Can’t blame him there right?

    “Hopkins: keeping it real.”

    Yeah, keeping it real in-the-closet gay! Seriously, he sounds like he’s getting a lil’ hot and bothered when he talks about “watching two guys with panties on wrestling, sweating … that’s just my opinion.”

    By the by, in the latest issue of GQ (the one with Terry Richardson’s “Tittyfuck me!” photo of January Jones on the cover), Zach Galifianakis drops the f-bomb on p. 213. Do we declare a fatwa on him, too?

  • ricky

    he’s right, it is pretty faggy.
