Bernard Hopkins doesn't seem to care that Michael B. Jordan and Roy Jones Jr. squashed their beef ... 'cause the legendary boxer says he wants to train the actor to whoop Roy's ass!!
ICYMI ... Michael B. previously told us his boxing skills were so good after filming "Creed II," he wanted a scrap with Roy -- and then the 49-year-old boxer told him to set it up!!
But, when we got Roy out at LAX last week ... he said the beef has been squashed -- and it doesn't look like a fight will go down.
Enter B-Hop ... who says not only should the fight still happen -- he wants to train MBJ to beat that ass!!!
"I'd love to be his trainer. I'd love to be Michael B.'s trainer. ... Michael cannot beat Roy Jones unless he has B-Hop's assistance!"
Of course, Bernard and Roy have history ... the two fought in 1993 and in 2010 -- and Bernard says that most recent bout (the one Hopkins actually won) is the key for MBJ.
"You know what the first lesson I would show him? I wouldn't show him the first fight, I would show him the second one when I won!!"
Soooo, fight back on?? Stay tuned ...
