SPORTS SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY
BERNARD HOPKINS BATTLES WINKY WRIGHT
Excerpt from HBO website dated May 5, 2007
Two of boxing's most notable fighters face off on Saturday July 21 at 9:00 PM ET/
6:00 PM PT, live on HBO Pay-Per-View
When boxing historians look back at the current era of boxing, two names will stand out
among the finest of this generation -- Bernard Hopkins and Winky Wright. But for these
fierce competitors, being one of the elite isn't enough. On Saturday, July 21st, at the
Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, live on HBO Pay-Per-View,
Hopkins and Wright will battle one another to claim supremacy.

"I'm back and my record speaks for itself," said Hopkins, the former undisputed
middleweight champion whose Ring magazine light heavyweight belt will be on the line
in this 170-pound bout. "I was champion for over ten years, had 20 defenses and a win
over a man they said was the best light heavyweight in the world, Antonio Tarver. Winky
Wright is a good fighter, but I'm a great fighter, and I'll prove that once again on July
21st."
"I'm glad that Bernard stepped up to the plate to fight me when no one else wanted to
take the challenge and I respect him for that," said Wright. "But that will all go out the
window when we step into the ring on July 21st. I'm younger, faster, stronger and better
than Hopkins and he knows it."
A true legend of the game and a future Hall of Famer, the Philadelphia native Bernard
'The Executioner' Hopkins (47-4-1, 32 KOs) ruled the middleweight division for over a
decade and defended his title a record 20 times, defeating the likes of Oscar De La
Hoya, Felix Trinidad, William Joppy, and Glen Johnson. In 2005, he would lose his title
in controversial fashion to Jermain Taylor, and after another disputed loss in their
rematch, many believed Hopkins' best days had passed. But in June of 2006, at the age
of 41, the Philadelphia native moved up in weight for the first time in his career and was
brilliant dominating the top 175-pound fighter in the world, Antonio Tarver, en route to a
lopsided decision win. Hopkins announced his retirement immediately following his
monumental accomplishment but shortly thereafter, decided he was still physically and
mentally capable of fighting big fights against his elite peers. On July 21st, Hopkins will
again look to show the world that age "ain't nothin' but a number" when he takes on
Winky Wright.
The pride of St. Petersburg, Florida, 35-year old southpaw Winky Wright (51-3-1, 25
KOs) took the long road to boxing stardom. A standout amateur, Wright was forced to go
overseas to get fights in the early part of his career, but it was in his opponents'
backyards that he learned the finer points of the game and developed the mental
toughness that led him to the world junior middleweight title in 2001. Wright would
defend his title six times (including two wins over Shane Mosley) before moving up to the
middleweight division and nearly shutting out Felix Trinidad in 2005 in one of the most
masterful performances in years. Two fights later, Wright would fight to a controversial
draw with Jermain Taylor in a fight most believed he won, but with a win over former
world champion Ike Quartey last December, Wright is back in the win column and ready
for his showdown with 'The Executioner.'

There is major media coverage associated with this opportunity in both

HBO Pay-Per-View is known for distributing the most premiere
professional sporting events in the world.
• HBO Pay-Per-View and will be available to more than 61 million payper-view homes
• Oscar De La Hoya-Floyd Mayweather Jr. boxing bout PPV attracted
2.15 million households (1.23 million cable and 925,000 satellite) who
paid $54.95 for the biggest PPV payday in history: $118 million and
change gross revenue. The previous record was 1.99 million buys for the
Tyson-Holyfield fight. If you include the $19 million-plus live gate (another

merchandising, sponsorships and closed circuit sales, the fight will gross

d). Boxing Fan Base:
Boxing fans are enthusiastic, devoted and often “fanatical” about the
sport. Age and ethnicity demographics shift with each weight division and
how a boxing match is delivered (such as live event, cable programming
or pay-per-view). Talented boxers on the rise often have a cult-like
following. Unlike years past where the heavyweight division led the
charge in fan-base, now many of the middle and lower divisions are the
hottest tickets with the most exciting and entertaining fighters. Winky
Wright and Bernard Hopkins fall into that category.
The fans of boxing have traditionally represented a 35-64 year old white
male at home watching a boxing match on a major broadcast network,
but due to the influx of music industry celebrities into the boxing world and
the MTV generation becoming adults who grew up watching cable
television, boxing fans are beginning to become younger (18-34) and the
age demographic has become more widespread (18-54). With the
popularity of fighters like Oscar De La Hoya, women now have more
interest in the sport than ever before.

*Boxers have been identified with their ethnicity more than any other athletes in any other
sport.
Boxing has basically been a mirror of our cultural development, a social staircase into our
society. Throughout the years, each of America's ethnic groups has had its share of fistic
heroes to rally around. For the Irish, it was John L. Sullivan, "Gentleman" Jim Corbett and
Jack Dempsey. Jewish fighters making their way to prominence included Benny Leonard
and Barney Ross. The Italians had Rocky Graziano, Carmen Basilio and Marciano,
among others.
Black stars, many from equally underprivileged backgrounds, dominated the 1960s and
'70s, contributing - in the form of Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman and others
a new wave of cultural icons. The stars of today are Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Winky
Wright.
Then came the emergence of Latin greats Roberto Duran, Salvador Sanchez and Julio
Cesar Chavez, culminating with crossover superstar Oscar De La Hoya. Hispanic fighters
and their fans are considered the sport's lifeblood.
