Paul Pierce and Steven Nash are the type of players you'd make grandpa jokes about. Not Bernard Hopkins though. Hopkins is no joke.

The 49-year-old light heavyweight proved he had more in him again by picking up his third-straight win against Beibut Shumenov. Hopkins' split decision victory unifies the IBF and WBA light heavyweight championships, making him the oldest to do so.

But the real question is: Can he beat Cam'ron in a boxing match? Hopkins has won 55 matches, but has never beat someone who threatened to shoot up a funeral and then Harlem Shake at the wake. Sounds like an even matchup.
