Hopkins: My mother passed away last year. She was the backbone of eight kids. You will see Shirley Hopkins either on my trunks or on my shoes.
SI: Is it more fun to smack around a good-looking guy like De La Hoya than just some average-looking boxer?
Hopkins: Oh, absolutely. You know, it wouldn't hurt to knock out a couple of teeth. You look at De La Hoya, and you think that he is an actor or a singer. I'd like to rearrange a couple of things on his face so the pretty boy becomes just another boxer.
