I think Hopkins and Pascal would make a great comedy act.

Pascal's got that funny trash talking off to a tee, some of the shit he said to Dawson was hilarious.... Hopkins is just Hopkins - ''I'm a real dude.... I'm a real dude from the streets, man''

Hopkins by close & competitive decision. If Pascal's conditioning was better I'd fancy him to get over the line, but there's not going to be as long a figuring out/adjustment period this time......

I'm quite surprised Pascal is the favourite here. Even though it's in Canada the only reason the first fight was quite close was because of the 2 knockdowns, one of which was questionable. I think B-Hop takes it again, and actually gets the decision this time.

I can't really see a way of Pascal winning this one. His stamina just is not good enough to fight someone like Hopkins over 12 rounds. He needs an early stoppage I feel so I can see his approach being similar to the first fight and when that doesn't come, he'll be struggling as much as he was then.

Hopkins' body punches are underrated, they are near perfect and I'd expect him to commit to the body even earlier this time round. Plus Pascal has awful balance when leading off, I was surprised Hopkins didn't catch him cleanly on the counter in the 1st fight but there is always that opportunity now and I would be surprised if he didn't capitalise.

It depends on how aggressive Bernard wants to be. I'd expect him to start stronger this time (obviously!) and take the fight to Pascal cos he knows he has the beating s of him + will want to avoid there being any chance of it being close on the scorecards. Then if he has a clear, early lead I can see him exploiting the mistakes of a tired Pascal and picking him off at ease. I actually suspect a Hopkins win by a mid-late stoppage in this though I do feel him on pts is the more ikely outcome. I just can't see anywayof Pascal winning unless he gets him out of there in the first 3 rds which would be pretty shocking.

I'm looking forward to this more than the UK card. I like Pascal, good guy, but his antics ain't been too clever. I reckon Hopkins might do something of a job this time.

Sources close to the situation are stating that the Quebec boxing commission is strongly considering the possibility of requiring a special drug test for the May 21st rematch between WBC/IBO light heavyweight Champion Jean Pascal (26-1-1, 16 KOs) and former world champion Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins (51-5-2, 32 KOs). The bout will take place at the Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Their first fight ended in a draw this past December at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City. Tempers erupted between the two this past March at a press conference in Montreal when Pascal stated that he wanted Hopkins to take a special test to prove he was clean.
