Bernard Hopkins becomes the latest boxer to obsess over "no homo". The former middleweight world champion lashed out against mixed martial arts and the very popular Ultimate Fighting Championships, slamming the admittedly homoerotic sport as gay "pornos" and criticizing fighters for their square cut shorts.
Hopkins says: "I don’t want to watch two grown men wrestling with panties on. I’m from the hood, we don’t play that. To me, I’m not buying a ticket to watch two grown men with panties on, sweating, [with] nuts in their face. That’s not me. To compare that to boxing is ludicrous. It’s a porno."
'Cuz of course there is nothing homoerotic about two guys stripping to their underwear, staring nose to nose, then hugging and sweating for 12 rounds. If you say so, hon.
