Bernard Hopkins

Bernard Hopkins is now the oldest fighter to win a major world championship after defeating Jean Pascal… he was 46! The previous oldest winner was George Foreman at 45 years and 10 months. Hopkins (52-5-2) was, to be exact, 46 years, 4 months and 6 days. Jean Pascal is just a youngster, compared to Hopkins, as he’s in his 28th year. Hopkins stripped him of his WBC, IBO and The Ring magazine titles. This fight was actually a rematch, as their Dec. 18th fight was a draw.

 Marquez possibly to fight Pacquiao again. Pacquiao hasn’t officially agreed to the fight… more later.

 Football player Ray Edwards, of the Minnesota Vikings, won his pro boxing fight. The fight was short and sweet, ending in the 4th round after 2 knock downs. T.J. Gibson was the unlucky opponent. Edwards isn’t the only football player turned boxer. Tom Zbikowski is now 4-0 in his boxing career.

 Denis Lebedev knocked out Roy Jones Jr. in Moscow, in the 10th and final round.

Chad Dawson

Chad Dawson defeats Adrian Diaconu. This victory, at the Bell Centre, is pivotal for Dawson… he’s earned a fight with Bernard Hopkins. This is Dawson’s first victory with his new Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward. The taller, longer and quicker Dawson used those attributes to his advantage against Diaconu.

Nick Diaz will not box… According to his manager, Cesar Gracie, the team decided that Diaz’s options in MMA outweigh the attraction of switching over to boxing. If this were a couple months ago, it could have made all the difference. The MMA must be working out for Diaz…
