Bernard Hopkins' Weight, With Unofficial/Rehydration Weights List
For our resource regarding all rehydration weights in our file, please see this link:
Fight Night Boxing Weights: A List Of Unofficial Weigh-in Weights After Rehydration
This page is here for your reference, comprised of all talk of Bernard Hopkins' weights in the ring that I find relevant, with as full a list as I can find of his unofficial/rehydration weights (and where they went unlisted), or what he likely weighed on fight night, going into the ring, as opposed to his listed official weigh-in weights, which are often misleading in a fighter's career. If you have a source to a missing weight you want to see up here, please link me to a source, so that I may verify it myself. Same for all corrections would be helpful. I will update this page as new information is collected. Thanks to HBO for their focusing on this detail when they are able in their broadcasts, as they have led the pack on this for all other channels. Please note, earlier fights before HBO that I've seen from other channels do not ordinarily do unofficial weights, so little will be found about what Hopkins weighed on fight night for most of his early career.
From latest to earliest:
Bernard Hopkins VS Jean Pascal II (rematch) - Contested at Light Heavyweight
Note: Jim Lampley was quoted during the Tale of the Tape feature as saying:
"Bernard Hopkins needed three trips to the scale to ultimately make weight."
