Bernard Hopkins Wants to Wear a Flyers Jersey Into the Ring

May 20, 2011, 12:57 PM EDT

Alright Bernard Hopkins. You know how to get people saying your name and posting it to their blogs when they otherwise wouldn’t be paying your upcoming fight much attention.

First the awful comments about Donovan McNabb (again), and now something we’d otherwise be pretty interested to hear: Hopkins says he’ll wear a Flyers Bobby Clarke jersey into the ring on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, where he’ll fight WBC light heavyweight champ Jean Pascal. le fans will probably enjoy that.

It’s not the first Hopkins-Flyers connection, as Ray Emery included the Executioner on his mask in 2009, which featured local boxing legends.
