You could say that Bernard Hopkins has been hit in the head many, many times throughout his life. And you wouldn't be wrong.

But that may or may not have anything to do with why the "pride of Philadelphia" and many-time world champion boxer was wearing an alien mask while appearing on Philly Sports Talk Live on Wednesday evening.

"I am the alien," the masked man said. "That's why I can do the things I've been doing for almost three decades. I realize and have been diagnosed as an alien... of the world but not from the world. And so I will come here to defend a title come the 26th of October in Atlantic City."

Hopkins was promoting his fight with German slugger Karo Murat which will take place at Boardwalk Hall. J

ust four days later the band Phish will play the same venue on Halloween and will likely bust out a nice Also Sprach Zaruthustra to send Bernard back to his mother planet.
