I think he should mostly be embarrassed that a man around 20 years older than him was dancing around him all night. Pascal's cardio has really been an issue since a while, and it showed even more tonight.

just saw the same thing. They're homers. And Pascal's team will use that to say that it was a draw and that they want a revenge.

Pascal needs to stop working on strength and start focussing on conditioning. I've never seen a guy run out of gas so quickly. Three punches and he's done for two rounds.

Yeah, that was a little off-putting, but they were mostly right, Hopkins had a good fight.

Emmanuel Stewart probably would have given Hopkins 9 rounds with 3 knockdowns. Divide the difference in half and you've got close to reality.

This is the way the last Rocky should have ended. The young punk thinking he's all that and the seasoned vet, with all the experience, teaching him a lesson inside the ring and winning the belt off of him.

Oh well, at least the alternate ending on the DVD has that ending.

I'd like to see Bute vs Hopkins. That would be a much better fight.

He's not the first one to have this happen.


Stamina is the obvious issue, no secret there. He goes for the flurry and then steps off. He has the talent and the desire to entertain and be offensive, but doesn't have the conditioning to keep up, so he'll either have to be more tactical or get a better conditioning/training staff because he can't keep up. Credit to Pascal for forcing Hopkins out of his relative comfort zone.

New problem for Pascal is that if he wants his title back, he's probably going to have to leave Quebec.
