Hot off the presses from Bernard Hopkins's press folks and the good people from Ripley's Believe It Or Not is word that the boxer has committed to a two-day appearance in the F/X department at Ripley's world headquarters in Orlando. There, on Monday and Tuesday, he will "begin the tedious task of having a full body wax casting made as the first step in having a wax figure created of himself."

The unveiling will come during fight-week "activities" before the Hopkins punches and/or gets punched by Chad Dawson on Oct. 15. Then, it will frighten children for eternity.
