Thursday, 3:10 p.m. ET -- The fox and the bull

I remember before the first Bernard Hopkins fight against Jermain Taylor in 2005, they had one of these prefight media hype events, and Oscar De la Hoya called Hopkins "a sly fox." Later, he called Taylor "a young fox." A foxfight! Hopkins happened to have brought a pair of oversized Coke-bottle eyeglasses to the shindig, because he was pretending to be a professor who would school the younger Taylor. He couldn't see well out of the glasses and waved his arms like he was blinded and said "I feel like Redd Foxx."

Well, the fox is back.
