Bernard Hopkins unleashed another verbal barrage at Donovan McNabb the other day Joe Hand's Gym, questioning the quarterback's toughness as a function of his upbringing.

It was his 29,000th such blasting of McNabb. In his defense, he was dragged into it this time, asked for some reason by reporters there to cover boxing what his opinion was of Michael Vick. Naturally, the conversation twisted toward McNabb.

It's an odd dynamic, but a never-ending one. It's also unnecessary, and probably always was. B-Hop is a Hall of Fame-level boxer, still ranked by many as the No. 1 light-heavyweight in the world. He fight Jean Pascal in a rematch of their December draw March 21 in Montreal. Should he win at age 46, he will surpass George Foreman as the oldest fighter ever to win a significant championship.

That should be enough attention, without beating up on McNabb, too.

Check out my column on Hopkins in the Daily Times Friday and on
