Password: Pascal vs. Hopkins Conference Call
WHAT: Jean Pascal and Bernard Hopkins will host an international media conference call to discuss preparations for their fast approaching December 18 world championship bout.
With a victory over Pascal, Hopkins would become the oldest fighter in boxing history to win a significant world title. The young and talented Pascal will attempt to derail the veteran Hopkins’ history-making plans and retain the WBC and Ring Magazine Light Heavyweight titles in front of a sold-out crowd in his native Canada.
FACTS: Pascal vs. Hopkins is promoted by Groupe Yvon Michel Inc. and Golden Boy Promotions and presented by the Casino de Montreal, The City of Québec Tourism, Coors Light and Videotron. The 12-round world championship fight will take place December 18 at the Pepsi Coliseum in Québec City, Canada and will be televised live on SHOWTIME in the United States at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and distributed live on pay-per-view in Canada on Canal Indigo, Bell TV, Shaw TV and Viewer’s Choice in French and English at 7:00 p.m. ET.
