I wasn’t going to comment on this, but enough people have expressed an interest, so let’s take a close look at what might just be one of the more interesting fights of the year 다운로드.
This weekend in Montreal, Jean Pascal takes on the ageless Bernard Hopkins in a rematch of a ‘majority draw’ held last Dec. 18, at the same venue, the Bell Center 다운로드.
Many people think that the draw was a ‘hometown’ affair, with Pascal, a native of Haiti living there.
The fact remains that Hopkins, at age 46, is not the same fighter he once was 다운로드. No question he can still think on his feet with the best of them, but he has been slowing down in recent times.
The facts speak for themselves. Pascal, 28, 26-1-1, (16) is younger and quicker but that and the home town edge is all that he has going for him. I don’t see it being enough this time around.
Hopkins 51-5-2 with 32 knockouts has a height and reach advantage, and he certainly knows how to use it.
I can see the scenario where Pascal plays hit and run and really tires the “Executioner” out, but Bhop has ring smarts and is not going to chase Pascal all night.
And it probably isn’t going to be decided by the judges again. Hopkins by stoppage midway.
