Hopkins who has been fighting for more than 20 years has built thick skin and can handle a lot, but some things he just won’t put up with. On Thursday, March 31st, at a press conference in Montreal, Pascal insulted Hopkins by accusing him of using steroids and demanding he take a drug test before their fight. That touched a nerve with Hopkins who is in very good shape and takes pride in being healthy. Hopkins shoved Pascal and the two had to be separated.
