Bernard Hopkins vs. Jean Pascal: A Great Day to Be a Boxing Fan?
Hardcore and casual boxing fans alike will all be tuning into HBO tonight to watch the anticipated rematch between Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal. The Executioner has done a marvelous job of hyping the fight and getting people interested in watching.
Will it really be a great day for the sport of boxing though?
The first fight between Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal didn't really do much to help the sport. The fight wasn't overly exciting and the controversial ending didn't help matters.
Why should we assume the second fight will be any different? Hopkins still talks a great game, but at the end of the day he's a fairly boring boxer.
Don't be surprised if this is another close fight with a controversial ending that leaves the entire audience disappointed with what they just witnessed. I don't see either fighter taking enough risks to make this an enjoyable fight for fans.
Let’s hope I’m wrong!
