Hopkins says he's ready to fight


In his continuing battle with time, Bernard Hopkins sent a strong message on Wednesday night.

"I'm ready to fight," tweeted Hopkins, who turns 48 in January.

Hopkins lost his light-heavyweight world title in April when he fell by unanimous decision to Chad Dawson at Boardwalk Hall. Earlier this month, Hopkins tweeted that he'll fight by January at the latest. His Twitter bio says he plans to fight until he's 50 years old.

Before losing to Dawson, Hopkins hadn't lost a fight since 2008. He scored a unanimous decision over Jean Pascal in May of 2011 to become the oldest fighter to win a major title in history.
