    Default Hopkins files defamation lawsuit against Pascal for saying he uses PEDs

    One thing is certain: Hopkins is done fighting with Pascal. At least in the ring. Hopkins says he is moving forward with plans to file a defamation suit against Pascal in Canada for comments Pascal made on the press tour hinting that Hopkins was using performance-enhancing drugs. He says he has hired a "high-profile Canadian lawyer" to help with the lawsuit.

    That's ridiculous.
    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    In the US he has to prove "intent" to defame or it will get thrown out at the hearing. But in Canada "intent" is presumed. Where it might not be worth his time, is even if the statements were proven false, it doesn't mean Pascal will be held liable. For that he has to prove actual damages. He might actually end up paying a Lawyer more than he would be awarded if anything.

    I will lose all faith in my country (what little I have left), if even a penny of tax-payer money is spent hearing this case. Luckily, I don't think it will happen.

    Damn Calzaghe should have sued him for being a racist.

    No need for these kinds of lawsuits really.

    If I am correct, PAscal never said he took PEDS, he just asked why he wouldn't take the test if he was clean. ON that base, I think Hopkins can't win and as it has been stated, it is just a matter of EGO.

    I cannot see why B Hop would do this, he hates wasting money.

    I think PBF's crusade to Fairness has just spiraled into a crusade of pissing and b!tching. This sh!t will be contagious, more and more will ask for tests, more and more with turn them down and round and round we go!

    Hopkins is not a guy who has ever been under suspision... he's not phenomenally powerfully, fast and he doesn't have an insane work rate.

    He's were he is now due to a great boxing brain, great technique and great muscle memory and discpipline... PEDs don't give that.

    He shouldn't rise to Pascal... it was prefight games... the more it's dragged out the more and the longer people will talk about it and the more credence he's giving it too.

    suing someone in canada isn't like suing someone in the usa...its going to get you peanuts.

    but pascal did scream several times into the mic at the press conference that bernard was a cheater and was on steroids.

    Exactly, Pascal kept screaming that Bhop is a cheater. Which gives Bhop a case.

    also, pascal sold "are you willing to take the test" t-shirts in the stadium the night of the fight.

    no legal bearing...but pretty stupid considering its completely unfounded and was a poor attempt to get inside hopkins head during the press conference. clearly didn't work.

    or maybe since he made a profit from the slander there is a legal consequence.
