hands down bernard hopkins, a good runner up would be a winky wright movie that shows how they tried to put him down by spreading rumors (asthma), questionable decisions and set backs(vargas,taylor) fighting in europe because he had no choice because nobody really wanted to fight the guy. they can also show how he came across dan and then his rise to stardom by beating mosley and trinidad. i think it would make a great movie

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't a stand over man an enforcer who makes collections for organized crime members?

Are u saying that Briggs was once like Furio from the Sopranos?

The man who will become one of the greatest of all time come July 21st: Bernard Hopkins.

Streets of Philly - Grateford - Working with the master Bouie Fischer - First pro fight lost - KO of that kid he fought on a 5hrs short notice - Loss to Roy - battles vs. the system - 21 title defenses - 2 robberies vs Taylor (HBO = Home Boys Only) - Enter Guru Mackie Shilstone - Retire - unretire - win very round vs. Winky Wright...

Seriously, there are so many angles through which you can approach Bernard's life... Plus Bernard is a character, he has a strong personality, he's perfect for the big screen.

There will never be another Bernard Hopkins, yall will miss him!
