Bernard Hopkins has got inside Pascal’s head
By Richard Hall: Bernard Hopkins (51-5 -2) has got inside Jean Pascal’s (26-1-1) head as Max Kellerman hosts a face off with and Bernard Hopkins looking to break the record of the oldest world champion in history.
Watching this Face Off with these two warriors before they get in the ring gives you an idea of what the fight is going to be like, obviously there is a lot of trash talk and this can be expected but it seem that Pascal is the only one talking trash. Bernard is playing a whole different mind game in this fight and he says allot about how Pascal is a only a four round fighter, but what he doesn’t need to say is it only took Bernard 4 rounds to work out Pascal and he wont even need that this fight.
Hopkins is and always will be known as a king of trash talking but he is not doing it so much this fight. Why because he is focused on been 110% ready to mentally and physically break apart Pascal when it comes to May 21st. In this face off Hopkins wasn’t talking trash he was getting inside Pascal’s head by telling him he isn’t mentally strong enough to go 12 rounds with him, and that he will punish him and all those round will be his curse. Pascal doesn’t have much to say accept the usual trash but you can see in his face that he was intimidated and Hopkins is not intimidated one bit by Jean Pascal.
No matter what the result May 21st you have got to give credit to both fighters especially Bernard Hopkins for not hanging the gloves up and carrying on been the brave warrior he is and also the sport of boxing. Boxing saved him, he went to prison a mugger at 17, having been stabbed three times, and came out an athlete, his life transformed.
