WAOK(Atlanta) — Bernard Hopkins became the oldest fighter to win a major world championship, taking the WBC light bhop Sports Kings Fight Game: BHop Wins / Jones KOdheavyweight title Saturday night from Jean Pascal at the age of 46.

Hopkins won a unanimous decision against the Canadian Pascal in a rematch of their Dec. 18 draw in Quebec City.

Up next for BHop… Chad Dawson (30-1) who showed masterful defense and crisp punching as he scored a 12-round unanimous decision over Adrian Diaconu in a light heavyweight elimination bout Saturday at the Bell Centre.

The bout was the co-feature to Jean Pascal-Hopkins II, a rematch of their Dec. 18 draw in Quebec City.


Looking to stop his stellar career from fizzling out, Roy Jones Jr. was KO’d by Denis Lebedev in Moscow on Saturday.

Jones challenged Russia’s top cruiserweight to prove his worth, saying: “If you can whoop me, whoop me.”

The 42-year-old Jones has been in decline since his mid-30s, prompting a return to cruiserweight — perhaps as part of a hopeful quest to add the only title to elude him between middleweight and heavyweight.

But the American’s poor form in losing his last two fights to Danny Green and Bernard Hopkins, and the jarring power of his more youthful opponent, earned Jones the underdog tag.

Jones, is now 54-8 record with 40 KOs.

    When is Roy Jones Going to finally hang up his gloves? I honestly don’t know what its going to take!!
