This is not how Bernard Hopkins wanted to end his boxing career.

Hopkins’ legendary 28-year career came to an embarrassing end at the hands of Joe Smith Jr., who punched him out of the ring in the eighth round.

Hopkins, who will be 52-years-old next month, complained of an ankle injury when he fell out of the ring and said he couldn’t continue the match.

“I was throwing the right hand and a combination and then using the rope as I’m known for, and making a mess,” Hopkins said. “He got frustrated, and I might have gotten glazed with a left hook and next thing I know he was throwing me out of the ring.

“I injured myself and hit my head first and hurt my ankle. I knew of the 20 seconds, but couldn’t stand up on my feet because my ankle was injured. I said I could walk but I couldn’t box. I had a choice to make, but I guess the referee made it for me. I know if I hadn’t made a mess and gotten knocked out of the ring, I would’ve come back like I’m known for and would’ve had my chin.”
