We're not going to just try to fight the terrorists, we're going to try to stop them in their tracks. We can't quit now and these great men can not have died in vain," said Don King, boxing promoter.Trinidad signed autographs and posed with fire fighters for pictures. Meanwhile Trinidad's opponent, Bernard Hopkins was busy training at Philadelphia. "I'm prepared to go 12, I'm prepared to go five. I would love to go 2. The less I'm in the ring, the less I give him the chance to strike me or to win. I'm prepared. I'm prepared to go and fight, whatever happens between one and 12 - I'm ready for it. I don't want it to go 12 but I'm ready for it," said Bernard Hopkins.The rescheduled fight for the undisputed Middleweight Title will take place this Saturday.
