Pascal, Hopkins Quick Quotes

At today’s NYC press conference for his December 18 SHOWTIME-televised championship tilt with Jean Pascal, Bernard Hopkins made an age joke to big laughs from the press, “I was in my rocking chair when he said he wanted to fight me next. I rocked faster, grabbed my cane and put me teeth in!” Later, an impassioned Hopkins said, “He makes one mistake & it’s over. I’m not just coming out for a payday. I’d NEVER disrespect my legacy.”

Current WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Jean Pascal countered by saying, “Bernard Hopkins came to my country & disrespected me, but I won’t do that to him because my mom taught me to respect my elders.” He later pulls out his college diploma, looks Hopkins in the eye and says, “I’m gonna take you to school.”
