Bernard Hopkins vs. Jean Pascal: 5 Fighters the Executioner Can Fight Next

At 46, when former undisputed world middleweight champion Bernard "the Executioner" Hopkins steps into the ring to face Jean Pascal this weekend, he will be attempting to become the oldest fighter to ever win a major world title.

Hopkins (51-5-2, 34 KO) already set his own record, successfully defending his middleweight title 20 consecutive times before losing it to Jermain Taylor in 2005. 

Still, Hopkins continued to fight the best, defeating fighters like Kelly Pavlik, Antonio Tarver, Winky Wright and eventually avenging his loss to Roy Jones Jr.

His last fight resulted in a draw with Pascal (26-1-1, 16 KO), who retained his WBC light-heavyweight title.
