WBA/IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (55-6-2, 32KOs) is not only looking to win, he's looking to win big when he faces the dangerous WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (25-0-1, 23KOs) in an HBO televised unification on November 8th.

Hopkins, nearly 50-years-old, wants to eclipse one of his biggest career victories - the 2008 HBO televised twelve round domination of then undefeated, and heavily favored to win, Kelly Pavlik. In that fight, Hopkins turned back the clock and boxed Pavlik's ears off. Pavlik, who met Hopkins at a catch-weight of 170-pounds, was never the same fighter.

"November 8th has to be accomplished in a big way for me. I just don't want to win, I want to win impressively. I want to win better than I won in the Kelly Pavlik style of fight," Hopkins said.
