On October 20, 2010, Planet Hollywood in midtown Manhattan was the home for the Bernard Hopkins VS Jean Pascal press conference, leading in to their showdown on Showtime on December 18. Yesterday, we brought you a quick report and some snapshots of the event, today we have video highlights of the press conference!
Speakers include Oscar De La Hoya, Naazim Richardson, Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal! This is a rare occasion of me saying watch a press conference! They are not always too exciting but I have to hand it to them, this was one of the best pressers I have been to! MMA promoters, study this video – this is how you draw attention and excitement leading into a fight. There was no chair throwing or shoving, no blatant trash talk or cursing or death threats. Just two men who can use their words to paint a powerful image of what this fight means to them and why they are the best in their division. The passion and intensity in their words will hopefully be as strong when it comes time to fight, but I have no reason to believe otherwise. Watch and learn!
