  Calzaghe Speaks Out On Hopkins vs. Pavlik  
As he continues to prepare for his November 8 "Battle of the Superpowers" against Roy Jones, Jr at Madison Square Garden in New York City and live on HBO Pay-Per-View, undefeated light heavyweight champion Joe Calzaghe took a quick break from training to share his thoughts on Saturday night's tremendous victory for Bernard Hopkins over Kelly Pavlik.  Here is what he had to say:

"I said all along Kelly Pavlik was overrated, overhyped and hadn't done anything in his career to a warrant a fight with me.  This was evident Saturday night when Hopkins destroyed and exposed him for what he is.  That is why I wasn't going to waste my time fighting him and went straight to a bout with Roy Jones who has proved himself time and time again that he is one of the greatest fighters in our era. I have been a champion for 11 years and I am only interested in fighting legends."

  "Bazooka Joe" Demolishes Hernandez in 5th  
20 year old "Bazooka Joe" Linenfelser looked like a veteran fighter from the first bell. He started the 1st & 2nd rounds off slow, picking his shots with precision and confidence, attacking the body of former NABF Champion Fernando Hernandez of Chicago. Joe listened well to his corner and picked up the body attack in the 3rd and 4th rounds, hurting Hernandez towards the end of the 4th. As the 5th round started, Joe started mixing up the body attack and head attack throwing an increased amount of punches with every round. At the middle of the 5th, "Bazooka Joe" launched an all out attack after landing 3 well placed right uppercuts to the chin and nose of Hernandez who was badly hurt as the Referee on request from the ring Doctor called a very merciful halt to the bout at 2:38 of round 5.

  Hopkins vs. Pavlik Post Fight Quotes  
Bernard Hopkins: "I think this was the best performance of my career. Better than Tarver, better than Trinidad, better than Oscar, better than my 21 defenses. I am extremely happy tonight.
 
(Hopkins to Pavlik in ring post-fight)
"I was a fan of yours before and I'm a fan now. You need to get a little more slickness, listen to your coach and bend your knees more. Don't let this get you down. You're a middleweight champion and middleweight is your destiny.
 
Kelly Pavlik: "I just couldn't get off, I don't know why. It wasn't because of Bernard's slickness. There was just something wrong with me tonight. I couldn't throw double jabs and I couldn't do things that I normally can do in the ring.
 
"I'm going to go back to the drawing board. It just wasn't mine tonight. I'm going back to 160 where I'm more comfortable." Click Here For More

  Hopkins Stuns Pavlik, Winning ALL 12 Rounds To 0;
A Completely Dominating Performance From Beginning To End
 
Photo: Chris Farina - Top Rank

Bernard Hopkins (now 49-5-1, 32 KO's) upset the odds and shocked the boxing world along with Kelly Pavlik, winning not most, but EVERY SINGLE round from beginning to end, in a better performance than his fight with Felix Trinidad. The judges managed to give Pavlik between 1 and 3 rounds.

In round 1, a determined Hopkins started fast, landing first and countering Pavlik who's still warming up. The two traded at the end of the round.

In round 2, Hopkins again beating Pavlik to the punch. A left uppercut from Hopkins staggered Pavlik around the ring, stunning him for the remainder of the round.

In round 3, Hopkins is easily out boxing Pavlik. The lack of defense from Pavlik is really showing as he just plods forward catching shots looking to land one of his own.

In round 4, Pavlik getting frustrated, trying to get inside more but to no affect as Hopkins is ducking all of Pavlik's shots, tying up and fighting out.

In round 5, it's looking like a man vs. a boy at this point. Pavlik is just not in the fight at all. Hopkins lands, moves, ties up, lands, moves, looking like he did in his fight with Felix Trinidad.

In round 6, Hopkins counters a right hand that snaps Pavlik's head back, then another clean right at the end of the round.

In round 7, Pavlik has not won a single round yet to this point. Pavlik missing big shots by long, Hopkins countering, even winding up at one point, embarrassing Pavlik, making this fight look like a complete mismatch.

In round 8, referee Benji Esteves took a point from Pavlik for holding and hitting behind the head, no prior warnings were given. There really is no need to even score this fight. Pavlik needs a knockout and that's that.

In round 9, another round for Hopkins. This is just too easy for him. Esteves took a point from Hopkins for holding at the end of the round.

In round 10, Pavlik landed his first clean right hand and Hopkins didn't even move, yet another round for Hopkins.

In round 11, Hopkins really giving a full 100% in this fight, unlike before and it's really showing what he's capable of. Pavlik's 100% can't even win a single round in this fight.

In round 12, Hopkins all over Pavlik, looking for a knockout, staggering him early. Pavlik's face ending the round full of blood.

Final scores were 119-106, 118-108, 117-109.

Pavlik takes his first loss at 34-1, with 30 KO's, but still keeps his middleweight titles since this fight was fought at light heavyweight.

                                                                                                                         

  Undercard Results From Atlantic City  
Luevano Embarrasses Embarrassing Dib
Photos: Chris Farina - Top Rank

Steven Luevano (now 36-1, 15 KO's) had a relatively easy night with awkward Billy Dib winning a 12 unanimous decision. Dib, who is no Naseem Hamed, entered the ring with giant white gloves the size of pillows and appeared to hit just as soft. Dib brought more holding, grabbing and use of his head than he did actual fighting. Luevano was able to counter and easily offset the often off balance Dib. The only thing Dib has in common with Hamed is that they both wear boxing gloves. Final scores were 116-112, 115-113, 117-111. Billy Dib takes his first loss at 21-1, 11 KO's.

Rubio Gets Lucky Split Decision Over Ornelas

Marco Antonio Rubio (now 43-4-1, 38 KO's) had a tough time with Enrique Ornelas in a fight not many thought would go the distance. It appeared Ornelas got the better of the action throughout the entire fight, but two judges saw it differently.

After a close and even first round that Rubio may have edged out, Ornelas turned up the heat in round 2. Ornelas managed to rack up round 3 through 7 with his constant attack, snapping Rubio's head back with his power punches. By round 8, the right eye of Ornelas was widely swollen as he began to tire, still trading blows with Rubio. Ornelas appeared to comeback and take the 9th and 10th. In the 11th round, Ornelas looked the more worse for wear despite appearing ahead on scores. Ornleas was wobbly legged at the end of the round as Rubio attacked him against the roped. Ornleas decided to trade in the final round which usually has a disastrous result, but appeared to worked in his favor, fighting with nearly both eyes closed. Final scores were 115-113 for Ornleas, 115-113 for Rubio, and 116-112 Rubio. Ornelas falls to 28-5 with 18 KO's.

Jacobs In One
Daniel Jacobs (now 11-0, 10 KO's) scored an impressive first round knockout over Tyron Watson as the result of 2 knockdowns. Jacobs started fast, going straight to the body with quick combinations, then to the head with big hooks. A retreating Watson took a right hand through his guard that put him down for the first time. Watson rose only to back to the ropes with his hands up as Jacobs again went to the body with a left hook that put Watson down for the second time with no intention of beating the 10 count. Final time was 2:20 of the first round. Watson falls to 7-2 with 3 KO's.

Photos: Sumio Yamada
World ranked bantamweight Alex Valdez and his team are furious at the decision over referee Mike Griffin’s decision to stop his title fight in the second round against World Boxing Council champion Hozumi Hasegawa in Tokyo, Japan today.
 
“Alex won the first round with his aggression, in the second round at about the two minute mark he gets hit behind the head by Hasegawa and tumbles against the ropes. He’s up at the count of eight without a problem, Hasegawa flurries and Griffin stops the fight.
