Bernard Hopkins doesn’t seem to care that Michael B. Jordan and Roy Jones Jr. squashed their beef … ’cause the legendary boxer says he wants to train the actor to whoop Roy’s ass!!
ICYMI … Michael B. previously told us his boxing skills were so good after filming “Creed II,” he wanted a scrap with Roy — and then the 49-year-old boxer told him to set it up!!
But, when we got Roy out at LAX last week … he said the beef has been squashed — and it doesn’t look like a fight will go down.
Enter B-Hop … who says not only should the fight still happen — he wants to train MBJ to beat that ass!!!
“I’d love to be his trainer. I’d love to be Michael B.’s trainer. … Michael cannot beat Roy Jones unless he has B-Hop’s assistance!”
Of course, Bernard and Roy have history … the two fought in 1993 and in 2010 — and Bernard says that most recent bout (the one Hopkins actually won) is the key for MBJ.
“You know what the first lesson I would show him? I wouldn’t show him the first fight, I would show him the second one when I won!!”
Soooo, fight back on?? Stay tuned …
