Hopkins: Don't Be Surprised if Pascal Dies in The Ring!

By Chris LaBate

WBC/IBO light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal, and his opponent Bernard Hopkins, are having one of the most heated promotional tours in recent history. After nearly coming to blows on Monday in Montreal, they had to be separated in New York City on Tuesday. The rematch will happen on May 21 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. They previously met in December, and fought to a cotroversial twelve round draw.

The trouble began on Monday when Pascal asked Hopkins, 46-years-old, to take a test to determine if the former two division champion is taking performance enhancing drugs. Hopkins is very angry with Pascal.

"When a guy says I'm eating some kind of candy, that makes me angry. Don't be surprised if he dies in the ring on May 21. Don't be surprised if I kill him. That's how angry I am," Hopkins said.

"I wanted to go to Montreal and kick his ass again.  Right in his own backyard.  I know what a move like this means to legacy and going forward.  It is just another motivation to start over to build my career; but a different motivation as I am older now too.  For the last fight,  I was 45; I am now 46 and I am trying to break George Foreman's record, a record he set when he beat Michael Moorer for the heavyweight championship of the world, becoming the oldest fighter to fight and win a major title.

[QUOTE=edgarg;10307502]Whether Hickey is right or not he's entitled to his opinion. MY opinion is that Hopkins was very stupid to make these remarks to the press, not once, but TWICE. If it should just happen that [B]Hopkins DOES kill Pascal…
