ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Retiring his "The Executioner" nickname in favour of the "The Alien," Bernard Hopkins tried to give Karo Murat a close encounter of the knockout kind. With his first KO in almost a decade within reach, the 48-year-old Hopkins turned his title defence with Murat into a brawl, and retained his share of the light heavyweight championship with a unanimous decision Saturday night. Hopkins walked to the ring in a green mask with black eyes, and a cape, attire straight out of a campy sci fi flick. He had the "The Alien" emblazoned on the green waistband of his black trunks. "The alien dont get old," Hopkins said. Hopkins (54-6-2) was dominant in his most convincing -- and entertaining -- bout in at least a decade. He turned the later rounds into his own personal mission to score his first knockout win since beating Oscar De La Hoya in September 2004 -- 15 fights ago. He battered Murat and busted open the challenger with a series of rights to the face to help successfully defend his championship at Boardwalk Hall. Hopkins won 119-108, 119-108, 117-110. "I really wanted the knockout, but he was tough," Hopkins said. "You know youve got to take some punches. Yeah, I have a little bit of blood on me but this is what they want to see. They wanted to see the knockout, so I took some shots." Already the oldest fighter to win a major championship, Hopkins wants to keep fighting until hes 50. Up next, hed like a date with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the spring -- when Hopkins would be 49. "Were going to do everything we can to get the biggest possible fight," Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer said. The Philadelphia fighter also had the crowd on his side, with chants of "B-Hop! B-Hop!" echoing through the arena with each right hand in the late rounds. He also heard encouragement from undefeated Philly fighter Danny Garcia, groomed as the next big star, who screamed "throw that right hand into the body! All day, every day!" from press row. Hopkins, who weighed in at 172 1/2 pounds, pretty much did that as he pounded away at Murat. He smiled and shook his head no after absorbing some blows in the third round. Hopkins kissed Murat on the back of his head coming out of a clinch in the fifth. He also taunted Murats corner late in the fight, barking at them to stop the fight. "Im just glad he brought the dog out of me," Hopkins said. "I saw this guy was all cut up and Im just going to keep beating him. They didnt listen." Hopkins finally busted open Murat in eighth, with cuts above the left eye and the cheek. The blood didnt appear to seriously affect Murat. But Murat (25-2-1) didnt do himself any favours with a series of questionable blows. Hopkins fell in the sixth round and sat on his rear as Murat hit him twice in the face. He didnt lose a point. He did lose one in the seventh round for hitting after the break. Referee Steve Smoger shoved Murat in the face after another hit after the bell to end the 12th. Murat, born and raised in Iraq before moving to Germany, came out swinging and attacked Hopkins from the opening round. Hopkins built a successful career with a methodical style of doing just enough in the ring to win. But he answered Murat and they spent most of the bout exchanging big punches. "He figured if he roughed me up, hed get some sort of advantage," Hopkins said. "It didnt bother me." In the co-main event, Peter Quillin retained the WBO middleweight title with a 10th-round TKO over Gabriel Rosado. Rosado was busted open above the left eye and could not stop bleeding, forcing the ringside doctor to call for the stoppage. Rosado was irate and yelled profanities from the top rope. "They knew he was getting hurt and they stopped it," Rosado said. "I was hurting him in the later rounds. I deserve a rematch." Quillin, one of the best knockdown fighters in the sport, sent Rosado to the canvas in the second and was ahead on the three scorecards when the bout was stopped 40 seconds into the 10th.

The two combined for 42 points in a 104-91 victory over Sacramento on Friday night. While Lillard envisions the partnership with Aldridge rising to the level of say, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, he insists the Blazers are about much more. "We need to be (among the leagues elite), we talk about it," Lillard said. "But weve got a great supporting cast. We dont have to do it all." Lillard finished with 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists and Aldridge added 20 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter. The Blazers led 54-49 at the half and by as many as 14 points in the third quarter. "Damian and L.A., theyre kind of our go-to guys and they came through tonight," coach Terry Stotts said. DeMarcus Cousins almost singlehandedly carried the Kings with 35 points and nine rebounds. Sacramentos lone win so far this season came in the opener against Denver. Cousins said the loss was about "small things" turning into "big things." "We gotta gang rebound. You just cant depend on the bigs to grab all the rebounds," he said. "A lot of those rebounds go out of our area so weve got to be able to rebound out of our area. Weve got to get some help from the outside because when you dont, they get a lot of second-chance opportunities." Cousins pulled the Kings within 90-84 with a layup in the fourth quarter, but Aldridge countered with a turnaround jumper and six points was the closest Sacramento would get. Aldridge became the first Blazers player to score at least 20 points in each of the teams first five games since Clyde Drexler in 1988. It was the first game of a home-and-away back-to-back between the two teams. The Blazers visit Sacramento on Saturday night. "It will be a different game. Theylll be at home and theyll want to beat us for a little payback," Blazers forward Nic Batum said.dddddddddddd The Blazers went ahead 29-22 in the first quarter. Lillard, last seasons rookie of the year was 3 for 3 from the floor -- all 3-pointers -- for 9 points. Lillard became just the second NBA player to hit three or more 3s in his teams first five games. Former Blazer Damon Stoudamire did it with Toronto in 1996. Mo Williams layup stretched Portlands lead to 37-26. Late in the half, Wesley Matthews hit consecutive 3-pointers to put Portland in front 52-42. Matthews finished with 18 points. Cousins, who had 18 points and six rebounds in the first half, struggled in Sacramentos 105-100 loss at home to the Hawks on Tuesday. Shut down by Atlantas Al Horford, Cousins had 11 points and six rebounds, far off his average of 18.3 points and 9.3 rebounds. Cousins layup got the Kings within 54-53 early in the third quarter, but the Blazers took off on a 12-0 run to take a 68-55 lead midway through the period. The Kings struggled defensively against the Blazers, who had six players in double figures and shot nearly 50 per cent from the floor for the game. "Defensively, we collapsed," first-year Kings coach Michael Malone said.
