Bun B Set to Escort Boxer Bernard Hopkins to Final Fight

bunb.jpgBun B, one half of legendary Texas duo UGK, has been selected by boxer Bernard Hopkins to accompany him on his march to the ring in what is expected to be the middleweight champ’s final bout. On June 10th, Hopkins will face off live on HBO against light heavyweight Antonio Tarver in what is being billed as a “Fight to the Finish” at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. The match-up will mark an incredibly significant moment in Hopkins career, and the outcome will, in effect, determine his legacy in the ring after his impending retirement. Considered by many to be one of the greatest middleweights of this era, Hopkins promised his mother before her death that he would step out of the ring for good when he reached age 41. Bun, who, along with partner Pimp C, is regarded as one of Southern rap’s founding fathers, was flattered to be selected by Hopkins. He said in a statement, “It’s an honor to be able to be part of a legend’s career in this way. I’m honored to be able to walk with him.” The rapper has reportedly been in the studio preparing a special performance to mark the historic event.

    Hopkins is a beast, but no way he retires unless he wins, period. Also, no problem with Bun B, but if your going with B, you got to bring his homie Pimp C, no? And what song dude going to perform?

  • Big Kev

    Hey wiseguy… you`re not so wise after all.Should change your name to ignorant.It was clear in the way I wrote my message, that I did this to start some controversy…And it worked with you cause you lack confidence in your self.. when you really believe that some kind of hiphop is the best you don`t start to insult someone who doesn`t agree with you…
    On the real,it`s true that i will always prefer NYC hip hop cause I grew up with that and that`s what i`m feeling but i`m not stupid I know the south is big now and I may not be a big fan of the crunk rappers but I got all the Geto boys,Scarface,early Outkast,too short cds… And it`s also true that NYC is not banging right now and not well represented… but I can`t hide that When it comes to my classics,I`m thinking about ready to die,illmatic,reasonable doubt,enter the 36 chambers…
    Peace…and to the south, keep getting that money

  • RAMMY

    Thats stupid.

    Yo I’m a fan of ALL hip-hop first off…and it’s true..the only thing I been bumpin’ out of the East is Papoose,Busta Buss, & Juelz…everything else is wack to me…all the same…like Tech N9ne said “How many 2Pacs,Jay-Zs, & Master Ps can they conceive?” Everything hard is comin’ out the South…i.e. B.Gizzle,TIP,Weezy, & Chamilitary Mayne. Now the good underground is all comin’ from the MidWest..i.e. Atmosphere,Brotha Ali,any RhymeSayers shit. So the way I see it…the Middle gon be the next to take over. Done & Done. ~Holla~

  • bhillboy

    it’s all funny because hopkins is from PHILLY and he doesn’t pick freeway or beans or the roots or even the fresh prince. He picks a dirty south vet Bun B BITCH.

  • RAMMY

    Tony listen here bitch, g-unot is a stupid saying that makes no sense, if your gonna diss G-UNIT say somethin that makes sense instead of the 3 year old bullshit.

  • Big Kev

    To wiseguy,
    I totally agree with the classics you added… We can also mention Gangstarr and tribe albums and of course Stunts,blunts and hiphop is a classic… I don`t hate on the south and that pink shirt comment wasn`t necessary… South brothers wear clothes that look stupid to New Yorkers and vice versa.. It`s been that way forever.. Big respect to hip hop nationwide and I really mean it.. If nas and Primo make that collabo album I think that NYC gonna be back..
    Peace to wiseguy…… OUT
