A B-hop story you must read

November 4, 2008

Kudos to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! for sharing the story of Bernard Hopkins and Shaun Negler.


I was aware of the story, which I believe aired on HBO earlier this year.


Negler, an 18-year-old Hopkins fan, sadly died after battling cancer. But he fought off the cancer long enough to see Hopkins defeat Kelly Pavlik.


Hopkins was a true inspiration to Negler.


You have to read this story.
