46-year-old Bernard Hopkins (52-5-2, 32 KOs) schooled WBC light heavyweight Jean Pascal (26-2-1, 16 KOs) winning a twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Pascal staggered Hopkins in rounds four and twelve, but Hopkins used all his veteran tricks to keep Pascal off-balance and out of his rhythm for a majority of the fight. Scores were 115-113, 116-112, 115-114.

With the win, Hopkins becomes the oldest man to win a world title, breaking the record of George Foreman.
