Bernard Humphrey Hopkins Jr. (born January 15, 1965) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1988 to 2016. He is one of the most successful boxers of the past three decades, having held multiple world championships in two weight classes, including the undisputed middleweight title from 2004 to 2005, and the lineal light heavyweight title from 2011 to 2012.Hopkins first became a world champion by winning the IBF middleweight title in 1995. He would go on to compile 20 defenses, which remained a record for the weight class until 2018. In 2001 he successfully unified the middleweight division by defeating Félix Trinidad to win the WBA (Super), WBC, Ring magazine, and lineal titles. A victory over Oscar De La Hoya for the WBO title in 2004 cemented Hopkins' status as undisputed champion, while also making him the first male boxer to simultaneously hold world titles by all four major boxing sanctioning bodies. In 2001, Hopkins was voted Fighter of the Year by The Ring magazine and the Boxing Writers Association of America. In 2011, The Ring ranked Hopkins as third on their list of the "10 best middleweight title holders of the last 50 years." As of March 2019, he is ranked by BoxRec as the eleventh greatest boxer of all time, pound for pound.
