PR, I agree, though I think it's a stretch to say Trinidad was more competitive, lol. Trinidad wasn't as close to competitive as Pascal was.

Pascal at least landed on Hopkins a little in the later rounds, even if in a losing effort.
Trinidad barely landed on Hopkins at all with the exception of maybe the 6th round, where Hopkins traded shots with him more and was willing to openly exchange. Other than that, Trinidad landed VERY FEW clean shots the entire night.

Ornelas was landing on Hopkins as well. IF Roy Jones could throw more than 5 punches a round, he would have landed on Bernard too. Bernard has clearly slowed down a bit in the defensive department but his iron chin, ring IQ, and counter punching ability has made up for that drop. The second KD was a legit shot right on the chin... most fighters would have been rocked by that punch. LMAO at Trinidad being more competitive. That was a father putting his son on punishment. The Pascal fight was more like a Father putting his son in "Time Out".
Comparing the competitiveness of Trinidad and Pascal v BHop is ludicrously nonsensical. Trinidad v BHop was a bigger, older brother beating down his sibling. BHop grandsonned
Trinidad started his career at 140. Pascal belongs in the super middle to light heavy range.
While the Trinidad performance was spectacular (9 plus years ago) against a dude who had reached his bridge too far, Saturday night's domination of a 28 year old light heavy champion may be BHop's signature performance.
