Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Hopson took up boxing at the age of seven. Hopson earned a Junior Olympics gold medal in 1987, and was the National Golden Gloves Featherweight Champion the following year. Later in 1988, he won the Olympic Trials in the featherweight division; after a semifinal victory against world amateur champion Kelcie Banks, Hopson took a 3–2 decision over Carl Daniels. However, at the Olympic Boxoffs, Hopson lost to Banks in a pair of fights; because of these losses, he did not compete in the 1988 Summer Olympics.Known as "Fast" Eddie, Hopson turned pro in 1989 and captured the vacant International Boxing Federation super featherweight title in 1995 with a knockout win over Moises Pedroza. He lost the belt in his first defense, to Tracy Harris Patterson, later that year by 2nd round technical knockout (TKO), a round in which Hopson had four knockdowns recorded against him. Shortly afterward, Hopson lost via TKO to Santos Lopez and retired.
