Turn Back the Clock! B-hop flawless against Pavlik!

Atlantic City, NJ - Bernard “the Executioner” Hopkins demolished former undefeated Kelly “the Ghost” Pavlik over 12 rounds tonight in Atlantic City. A 4-1 underdog, Hopkins (49-5-1, 32 KOs) came out determined to show the boxing world that he is still one of the most skillful fighters on the planet. In somewhat of a shocker, Hopkins, known for taking the first half of his fights off, came out strong from the opening bell. Using is slick footwork, shoulder turns, and pure speed, he simply outclassed Pavlik.
Pavlik (34-1, 30KO’s) never landed a meaningful punch. Through most of the fight, he seemed lost, roaming the ring aimlessly, while continuously being hit.
As the closing bell rang, Hopkins gave a long stare down to the ringside media who had almost unanimously agreed Hopkins was too old and too slow for the younger “stronger” Pavlik. It seems tonight, many in the media should be eating their own words. In my opinion, the was one of the greatest boxing performances this fan has ever seen.
