Jean Pascal Ripping on Bernard Hopkins: "I Hate Him!"

By Chris LaBate

The tension is brewing between WBC/IBO light heavyweight champ Jean Pascal (26-1-1, 16KOs), and his title challenger Bernard Hopkins (51-5-2, 32KOs). Pascal, speaking to the QMI Agency, was ripping away at the former champion. Pascal-Hopkins II takes place on May 21 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. They fought to a controversial draw on Dec. 18 in Quebec City.

"Bernard doesn't like me, and that's fine because I hate him," said Pascal. "I'm telling you, it's personal because Bernard Hopkins disrespected Quebecers by saying the people of Quebec are little people, that Quebec City is a village."

Pascal is very angry with Hopkins' comments about the people of Quebec. He vowed to make the 46-year-old fighter pay in the rematch.

"Hopkins made a lot of money off of these people on Dec. 18," he said. "This guy lacks respect for people so I really want to set things straight on May 21 at the Bell Centre."

LOL Pascal already showing a sign of weakness. I can't WAIT to see B-Hop give Pascal another embarrassing schoolyard ass whooping again. I expect this to be just as one sided, Hopkins just needs to knock him out before the…
