The WBC has returned the light-heavyweight championship to Bernard Hopkins after declaring his bout with Chad Dawson a technical draw. Hopkins was stopped for the first time in his career Saturday night in bizarre fashion when Dawson lifted him and tossed him to the canvas late in the second round, leaving the 46-year-old champion with a dislocated joint in his left shoulder. Dawson claimed the WBC light heavyweight title from Hopkins on a second-round TKO in Los Angeles. The WBC reviewed video of the fight and unanimously declared Thursday that the action reflects a clear intentional lifting of the body followed with a push by Dawson to Hopkins that made him fall on his left side with part of his body out of the ropes.

Then Hopkins, who has a big stake in the pay-per-view promotion, realized one question hadn't been asked. Why watch the fight?

NATHAN CLEVERLY, the undefeated WBO light heavyweight champion, has been talking about Bernard Hopkins since last summer. At one point in August, Hopkins referred to him as "Cleary" and said he didn't know him and never saw him fight. That has changed, and now Hopkins, the WBC champion, could be entertaining a fight in Wales with Cleverly this summer. Cleverly (23-0, 11 KOs), 24, is scheduled to defend his title in Cardiff, Wales, on Feb. 25, possibly against Tommy Karpency.

ATLANTIC CITY - At about a quarter to 2 yesterday morning, an hour after relinquishing his shiny IBF and WBA light heavyweight belts, the man who holds the record as the oldest world champion in boxing history emerged from his locker room at Boardwalk Hall. Flanked by a hoard of supporters, Bernard Hopkins made the short walk to the postfight news conference. He stepped behind the podium, offered opening remarks and then took the first question. It was the query on everyone's mind.

The buzz at Joe Hand's Gym that came with Bernard Hopkins' media day last week had simmered. A day later, it was time for the 49-year-old to focus again on Saturday's fight against Sergey Kovalev. The dozen spectators - mostly members of Hopkins' camp - pulled up chairs or sat on the tile floor. They watched in near silence, speaking in whispers, as Hopkins readied to spar at the Northern Liberties gym. Hopkins called his opponent "Iron Fists," a 27-year-old Ukranian who was instructed to mimic Kovalev's fighting style.

BERNARD HOPKINS doesn't want to be on any pound-for-pound list should he beat Sergey Kovalev. To place him on one of those lists with some of the top fighters in the world would, as he said, make him human. With a 50th birthday approaching in January, Hopkins continues to reaffirm his new nickname of "The Alien. " So there he sat in the Fox Gittis Room inside the Liacouras Center at Temple yesterday, waxing poetic on his age, his upcoming light heavyweight unification bout, boxing history and, of course, pound-for-pound lists.

Maybe trainer Naazim Richardson won't have to coerce Bernard Hopkins into taking some time off after all. Hopkins was in the middle of training camp last week when his IBF light-heavyweight title defense was canceled after opponent Karo Murat was unable to secure a visa to travel from Germany. Hopkins, 48, was given a new opponent but would need to wait until the fall, which meant Richardson would have to somehow force his fighter out of the gym for most of the summer. On Thursday, the trainer may have found his way out of that predicament as Murat's promoter said the fighter was granted a visa and hoped to fight Hopkins on July 13 as originally scheduled at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

IT'S NOT HARD to figure out what IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud is thinking going into his title defense against Bernard Hopkins on Saturday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. It's likely the same thing guys such as Chad Dawson, Jean Pascal, Kelly Pavlik, Joe Calzaghe and Jermain Taylor thought before they stepped into the ring with Hopkins: Put "The Executioner" down. Grow your brand and reputation by being the fighter who finally sent the ageless wonder into retirement.

If Bernard Hopkins could have extended the fingertips of his outstretched right hand a little bit more, he might have touched the ceiling. The 48-year-old boxer was demonstrating how steep and high the hills are near Fairmount Park's Valley Green, where he runs at 6:30 each morning in preparation for his March 9 IBF light-heavyweight title bout with champion Tavoris Cloud at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. But what Hopkins could not show with a wave of his hand are the doubts he wards off each morning.

BERNARD HOPKINS knows he is old. He knows, still fighting at age 48, that he is an outlier, that most boxers his age would be taking a huge risk entering the ring. He knows this because it is always the first question he is asked, and it has been for almost 15 years. "I don't mind that question, I get it all the time," Hopkins said on Tuesday at a media workout at Joe Hand Boxing Gym. Hopkins is training for his HBO-televised challenge of undefeated IBF light-heavyweight champ Tavoris Cloud, scheduled for March 9 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. "How long they been calling me old?"

THE SUBJECT was cockroaches. Roaches and mice are as familiar to the children of poverty as hunger, bone-chilling cold in the winter and strength-sapping heat in the summer. The reality of doing without, or even the memory of it, can be branded into a person's psyche as indelibly as a glowing iron applied to a steer's backside.
