Bun-B to perform before boxing match
When boxers Antonio "The Magic Man" Tarver and Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins meet on Saturday, June 10, at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., it will be billed as a "Fight to The Finish."
But UGK's Bun-B has been recruited by Hopkins to get the match started right. Bun-B was honored to be chosen as the person to lead Hopkins out as he attempts to end a legendary career with a stirring win over one of the top light heavyweights of this era. "It's an honor to be able to be part of a legend's career in this way. I'm honored to be able to walk with him." Bun-B is in the studio putting together a performance to salute Hopkins before the match, which will air live on HBO.
