Pascal-Hopkins Rematch: Golden Boy Wins Purse Bid

By Chris LaBate

Golden Boy Promotions won the purse bid for the upcoming rematch between WBC/IBO light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal, and former champion Bernard Hopkins. The fight is a rematch of last December's controversial twelve round draw. Golden Boy, who promote Hopkins, put in the winning with a bid of $1.9 million, while Pascal's promoter, Groupe Yvon Michel, put in a bid of $1.7 million. The WBC's Diamond Belt will be on the line and as BoxingScene.com has already reported, the date of May 21 in Quebec is likely. HBO is expected to televise.
