BERNARD HOPKINS MAKES WEIGHT

Montreal, Canada (May 19)...A quarter of a pound is no sweat for Bernard Hopkins as he weighed in four ounces over the 175 pound weight limit during his first attempt on the scale at today's final weigh in.  He returned shortly there after and made weight. In the end, both Hopkins and his opponent Jean Pascal weighed in at 174 pounds 14 ounces.

Chad Dawson (173 pounds, 10 ounces) and his foe Adrian Diaconu (174 pounds, four ounces) also made weight ahead of their non-title light heavyweight bout.
