In the early hours of a Sunday morning as sweet as the cheesecake he promised to devour after again making history, Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins became, at 48 years old, the oldest man to win a world boxing title, surpassing his own record by two years. In his younger days, Hopkins's punches used to send opponents to sleep; in recent years his defensive style has done the same to TV audiences. But after beating the IBF champion Tavoris Cloud there were only warm words and wide‑eyed admiration.
