Chad Dawson says Bernard Hopkins and their debacle of a first fight don't concern him. All that matters, according to the former light heavyweight titlist, is sticking to his own script for Saturday's rematch.
Bernard Hopkins says the difference in class between him and Chad Dawson will show in Saturday's light heavyweight title fight: "You will see the difference on a runway track with the gas pedal to the floor."
Bernard Hopkins isn't making a fuss over his first fight with Jean Pascal: The right people know he won, B-Hop claims. But he is intent on setting the record straight -- and setting a record -- in Saturday's rematch.
Jean Pascal still has bitter feelings about his first fight with Bernard Hopkins -- and not merely because of the outcome. His goal for Saturday's rematch? To kick off Hopkins' Hall of Fame commencement sooner rather than later.
