Weekend Wrap Up Notes.

In what was a much better fight than expected Bernard Hopkins schooled WBC Champion Jean Pascal in the second half of the fight but was only awarded a draw.

Pascal dropped Hopkins twice once in the 2nd and 3rd rounds but dominated from there on. What an amazing performance for a damn year 46 year old living legend! Hopkins proved that youth is only but a tool in this performance.

Take home notes:

Hopkins embodies ring generalship with the way he fights. He knows how to disrupt rhythm and dictate pace. He displayed what solid footwork/movement does for a fighter. He also proved what an early round solid body attack does, Pascal was ineffective for that reason later in the fight.

He’s by far the most fundamentally sound fighter fighting today and again, he’s almost 46! Study him and learn.
