Hopkins: I’ll fight until I’m 50

By Richard Hall: In what was a highly anticipated rematch with the new WBC light heavyweight world champion Bernard Hopkins (52-5-2, 38KO’s) and the former World Boxing Council champion Jean Pascal (26-2-1, 16KO’s) turned out to be a entertaining close decision victory for the oldest world champion in the sport Hopkins, who passed George Foreman tonight as the oldest to capture a world title.

Throughout the fight, Hopkins showed that no one in the light heavyweight division has the boxing ability and skill that he does. He kept the fight at a fast pace and out-punched Pascal, schooling the young Pascal all night.

In the post fight interview, Hopkins said he wants to finish as a winner and fight for another 4 or 5 years. He then said he plans on fighting Chad Dawson (30-1, 17KO’s) next followed by IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (28- 0, 23KO’s). However, Pascal says he wants a third fight with Hopkins, which I don’t think Hopkins needs.
