Bernard Hopkins says he's representing the "40-and-up club" as he tries to become the oldest fighter to unify world titles.
Hopkins's record is 54-6-2, and he won his first world championship when Shumenov was 11 years old.
Says Hopkins: "I'm defending something bigger than my title — my legendary, 20-plus-year legacy. That's more important than anything around my waist."
