Photos: Hopkins Beats Pascal in Historical Montreal Bout

Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada - A Canadian attendance record was broken, with 17,750 screaming fans packing the venue to watch Bernard Hopkins (52-5-2, 32KOs) make history with a twelve round unanimous decision over Jean Pascal (26-2, 16KOs) to capture the WBC/IBO light heavyweight titles. The scores were 115-113, 116-112 and 115-114. Hopkins gets revenge after fighting Pascal to a controversial twelve round draw in December.

Hopkins, at age 46, becomes the oldest fighter in boxing history to win a world title - breaking the record set by a 45-year-old George Foreman in 1994 when he knocked out Michael Moorer to win the heavyweight crown.

A battle of former light heavyweight champions saw Chad Dawson (30-1, 17KOs) win a twelve round unanimous decision over Adrian Diaconu (27-3, 15KOs). The scores were 117-111, 118-110 and 116-112. Dawson is now in line to face the winner of the Bernard Hopkins vs. Jean Pascal rematch.
