Vegas oddsmakers have posted the odds for the Roy Jones Jr versus Bernard Hopkins rematch bout @ Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 3rd, 2010. Vegas has listed Bernard Hopkins the 5/1(-500) favorite to win and get revenge for a loss to Jones Jr by decision 17 years ago in 1993. A lot has changed since that middleweight bout almost two decades ago. Hopkins is now 45 years old and enters this fight with an impressive 50-5-2 career record with 32 wins coming by knockout. Despite his old age, Hopkins is still in impressive shape and is still one of the sport’s best light heavyweights. The Philadelphia native has registered impressive wins in his forties, including a win over undefeated middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik in dominating fashion two fights ago. Jones Jr, however, has not fared as well as Hopkins as he has aged. Now 41 years old, Jones Jr has fallen far from the days of the late 90’s and early 2000’s when he was considered by many to be the sport’s top “pound for pound” fighter. His career record is still an impressive 54-6 with 40 wins by knockout, but the Pensacola, FL native has suffered many humiliating losses the last several years including a first-round knockout defeat to Danny Green a few months ago in Australia. Many veteran boxing observers feel Jones Jr should retire before he seriously gets injured. NSAwins.com’s expert handicapper Gerry “Big Cat” Andino looks for Hopkins to easily win this bout by decision and thinks a stoppage is more likely.
