Bernard Hopkins (55-8-2, 32 KOs) suffered a devastating defeat in his final fight when opponent Joe Smith Jr (23-1, 19 KOs) knocked the 51-year-old veteran out of the ring in the eighth round on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
A flurry of punches sent Hopkins through the ropes as his legendary 28-year career came to a thudding end.
Smith went on the attack from the start but the aging Hopkins still had enough skill to avoid taking any big punches in the early rounds.
