LAS VEGAS, NV, July, 25, 2015 — Sergey Kovalev did what was expected of him in outclassing and annihilating mandatory challenger Nadjib Mohammedi in 3 mostly one sided rounds. The only argument among media and fans it seemed was how many rounds Nadjib would survive, with the majority response being “about 8 rounds”. Now it is your turn to find out how it all went down at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Main event is beginning as the lights dim and the light heavyweight challenger begins his ring walk. Nadjib Mohammedi of Marseille, France ( 37-3, 23 Kos) is wearing a classy Vegas themed hat and walking confidently to the ring when the lights suddenly brighten to trigger the imminent arrival of light heavyweight champion “the Krusher” Sergey Kovalev of Kopeysk, Russia (27-0-1, 24 Kos). The ring entrance music drowns everything out. It’s interesting Russian rock, uncharacteristic of what one would normally hear in a boxing ring. Kovalev is looking very serious, knocking his gloves together during Buffers customary “Let’s get ready to ruuuumbllle!” (continue reading…)

Former Reigning WBC Light Heavyweight Champion to battle Olympian and WBO Title Challenger
 
SAN DIEGO, CA -December 10, 2012–Jean Pascal (26-2-1, 16 KOs), the proven  World Boxing Council (WBC) Light Heavyweight champion from 2009 to 2011, is returning to the ring to battle former Olympian and two-time WBO world challenger Aleksy Kuziemski, live and exclusively on WealthTV Friday, December 14 at 7 PM EST from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
 
In 2010, Pascal had an impressive victory over the then undefeated Chad Dawson, giving Dawson his first professional loss.  Pascal twice went the distance with the legendary Bernard Hopkins.   In the first Pascal v. Hopkins fight, Pascal became the first man to put the future Hall of Famer on the canvas in more than fifteen years, yet Pascal was only able to secure a draw.   In Pascal’s last outing, a WBC/IBO world unification fight against Hopkins back in May of 2011, Pascal took Hopkins the distance but came up short on points.   Pascal plans to once again fight WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Chad Dawson on March, 23 2013 but before that fight can take place Pascal must get himself back in the various boxing associations’ rankings with an impressive performance against Kuziemski.

June 7, 2011 — “…it’s not the book they (the public) remember from the beginning, it’s the end of the book that justifies whether the book was good or not; it’s called the last impression,” said Bernard Hopkins.
 
One might think, at first glance, the WBC and IBO Light Heavyweight Champion was talking about himself when he uttered these words, however, they would be wrong. He was actually speaking about former champion Shane Mosley, and Hopkins, never one to hold back his words, did not veer from his script.  (continue reading…)

by on May.23, 2011, under Boxing News, Press Releases

Fight recap:

May 23, 2011 — Sports history was made Saturday night when Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins (52-5-2, 32 KO’s), at 46 years old, defeated 28-year-old former WBC and Ring Magazine Light Heavyweight World Champion Jean Pascal (26-2-1, 16 KO’s), making Hopkins the oldest fighter in boxing history to win a significant world title.  Not only did Hopkins take the belts from Pascal in front of 17,560 fans in his hometown of Montreal (an indoor boxing event record in Canada), but he defeated father time once again and solidified his place as one of the greatest athletes ever to compete over the age of 40. 

With his unanimous decision victory, Hopkins became boxing’s oldest world champion, breaking George Foreman’s record, which was set 16 and half years ago.  Foreman, who was 45 when he knocked out Michael Moorer for the heavyweight title on November 5, 1994, was 192 days younger than Hopkins when he captured his title.
