Boxing Breakfast: Bernard Hopkins Goes for History Tonight

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Pascal vs Hopkins II Link Roundup

Last Night

  • Friday Night Fights had a terrible main event, as Anges Adjaho stank his way out of any further TV dates with an awful non-performance against Joel Julio. Julio won the easy ten-round decision, followed by Adjaho pretending to be surprised. Joe Tessitore hilariously lost it. Sadam Ali won in the co-feature.
  • Solo Boxeo Tecate had what was reported as a very good main event, won by Christopher Martin over Charles Huerta. Ronny Rios won in the co-feature.
  • Ray Edwards of the Vikings was unimpressive in his pro boxing debut, but won the four-rounder.
  • Sergey Rabchenko stayed undefeated with a 12-round decision win over Bradley Pryce in Wales.

Today and Tonight

  • We'll have live results and coverage of the Nathan Cleverly vs Aleksy Kuziemski / James DeGale vs George Groves card from the UK at 3 p.m. EDT.
  • We'll also have live results of the Jean Pascal vs Bernard Hopkins II / Chad Dawson vs Adrian Diaconu double-header on HBO at 10 p.m. EDT.
  • Roy Jones Jr fights Denis Lebedev in Moscow. Here's a photo from the weigh-in.

After the jump: Your Song of the Day!

Song(s) of the Day

There is that chance, however small you think it might be, that tonight will be the last fight of Bernard Hopkins' career. I really don't know why he'd come back if he lost without controversy. So we'll do a double today of Philly soul.
