Pascal vs. Hopkins Boxing Odds

After another war of words outside the ring Jean Pascal and Bernard Hopkins finally get to trade blows in the ring this weekend when they face off in a Light Heavyweight championship rematch.

When Hopkins and Pascal do go toe-to-toe on Saturday night it will have been almost five months since they last met up in the ring. The initial fight between Pascal, the reigning WBC, IBO, and Ring Magazine Light Heavyweight champion, and Hopkins took place on December 18, 2010, and ended in controversy.

Pascal controlled that fight early on and knocked down Hopkins in the first and third rounds. Hopkins got up quickly both times, and from the sixth round on he got the upper hand. Hopkins was especially fierce in the final round, landing a number of big blows on Pascal, but he failed to knock the champion down.

After the fight went the distance Pascal retained his titles with a majority draw decision. Two of the judges had the fight scored even (113-113 and 114-114) while the third judge gave the fight to Hopkins at 114-112. The judges' decisions were controversial, and many boxing fans thought Hopkins should have been declared the winner after dominating the second half of the fight.

Hopkins will get his chance at redemption Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal. He'll also get the chance to make history as the oldest boxer to win a championship title if he can defeat Pascal. At 46 years of age Hopkins would break the record set by George Foreman when he defeated Michael Moorer at age 45.

Hopkins enter this weekend's bout with a lifetime record of 51-5-2 and one no-contest, with 32 wins by knockout. Before the draw against Pascal he was 5-1 in his previous six bouts, with all five wins coming by unanimous decision.

Pascal is much younger than Hopkins at 28 years of age. His record stands at 26-1-1 with 16 wins by KO. Before the draw versus Hopkins he had won his last five fights with two wins by KO and the rest by decision.
