Pascal/Hopkins II, May 21th

It's confirmed. They will be a rematch between Jean Pascal and Bernard ''The Executionner'' Hopkins on May 21th 2011 on HBO.

AND the semi-finals will be Chad ''Bad'' Dawson vs probably Adrian Diaconnu or Librado Andrade.

Would be amazing to see it live. Hopkins said it doesn't matter to come in Canada, but want neutral judges and referee.

So, do you think the fight will be in the US (Las Vegas?) or in QC (Bell Center or Colisée)

Maybe in Montréal with judges/ref from outside Québec/Canada/USA or easier : split the judging/ref between Canada and USA.

PS: Go Hopkins

Pascal ran himself out of gas trying to KO B-Hop last time out.

Personally I didn't think the decision was as questionable as Hopkins and the Showtime commentators. I expect Pascal to win and fight a smarter fight against the savy vet this time around.

Strange that it's HBO would have thought Showtime would have had the broadcast.

There was a bit of politicing going on between Dawson (who is also due a re-match) and Pascal, Hopkins (HBO and Showtime as well)

Glad it all worked out for the fans!

I know it's not topic-relevant, but it's still boxing. Somebody knows when will be next Bute's match?

edit: apparently, I am hockey-brainwashed.

Weird feeling to say this, but after the way the fight ended the last time these two met, I hope Hopkins takes this.

Memorable quote from the day after the fight, Hopkins was on the Team 990, and was asked by Tony Marinaro; "Having fought Pascal now, can you tell us about any weaknesses you discovered during the fight?"

Hopkins simply answered, "Me."

Showtime were supposed to have the next Hopkins fight but they have no money so it will be HBO.
