In fact, just last year, he became the oldest boxer to ever hold a world title. His career defies logic, and his longevity is unparalleled in any other sport. Hopkins is a fitness freak.On Saturday, October 26, the fighter defended his IBF light heavy-weight title against Germany's Karo Murat, 30, at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

After all, any opponent seems beatable when you've already knocked out Father Time. So how does Hopkins do it?
