After loss, Hopkins not sure of what future holds
ATLANTIC CITY — The Retirement Cha-Cha is a favored dance step of aging fighters who can’t quite decide whether they want to remain in the ring for as long as they can, or step aside because recent results and possibly common sense dictate that they do so. Following his majority decision defeat at the much-younger hands of Chad Dawson, and with it the transfer of his WBC and The Ring light-heavyweight championship belts, 47-year-old boxing legend Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins sounded very much like someone who isn’t quite sure whether he wants to leave the party with head held high or hang around for another couple of twirls across the floor.

Bernard Fernandez: A boxing writer remembers Bert Sugar, a boxing legend
BOXING'S ALREADY exclusive club of unforgettable characters became a bit more so on Sunday with the death of Bert Randolph Sugar, 75, the raconteur/historian known as much for his one-liners and ever-present fedora and cigar as for the 80 books he authored.

Bernard Fernandez: Jesse Hart: 'Amateur boxing cut the heart out of me'
NORTH Philadelphia's Jesse Hart understands how Drexel basketball coach Bruiser Flint and his players must have felt when they were bypassed on Selection Sunday. When you feel like you've done enough to earn something as important as a slot in the NCAA Tournament, and don't get it, the disappointment can run deep.

Bernard Fernandez: Honor for unsung Little
SGT. STEVE Little Jr.'s voice was filled with the kind of pride befitting a United States Marine. But then, the 24-year-old son of the late former WBA super middleweight champion always sounds that way when speaking about his father, who was only 34 when he died of colon cancer on Jan. 30, 2000, leaving behind a grieving wife and six children.

Bernard Fernandez: My father and I shared a bond with Dundee
IT ISN'T OFTEN that, in speaking about a 90-year-old man, you can say he left this world far too soon. But it isn't often that someone like Angelo Dundee comes along.

Bernard Fernandez: Paterno: The last of his kind
WAS IT A self-fulfilling prophecy? There will, of course, be those who will claim that the passing of legendary former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was not so much from the effects of the lung cancer that weakened his 85-year-old body as from a broken heart. And there probably is some truth to that.

Bernard Fernandez: Hopkins wins court battle
IT APPARENTLY is easier to defeat Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins in the ring than in a courtroom. Hopkins, the WBC light-heavyweight champion from North Philadelphia who turned 47 on Sunday, ran his record to 4-0 in lawsuits filed against him while represented by attorney Arnold Joseph when a jury ruled in his favor Thursday in a breach-of-contract action brought by the estate of Hopkins' former trainer, Bouie Fisher.

Bernard Fernandez: JoePa interview provokes sadness
IT HAS BEEN 2 1/2 months since the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal incited national passions, embroiled Penn State in a controversy that isn't going away any time soon and, oh, yeah, tarred and feathered the previously pristine image of Sandusky's former boss, Joe Paterno, the iconic, octogenarian football coach of the Nittany Lions whom so many were quick to chastise as an enabler to a pedophile and so many others were equally quick to defend as a blameless victim of circumstance.

Bernard Fernandez: NBC series debuts with Philly card
IMAGINE TRYING to fill in the Grand Canyon with a shovel and a really humongous pile of dirt. That was the kind of daunting challenge that faced the hardy souls who were there when ESPN launched on Sept. 7, 1979. To fill all those hours of programming between the live football and basketball games people were most interested in seeing, the start-u
