By Dan Rafael ESPN.com Bernard Hopkins has made a career of proving naysayers wrong. "The Executioner" did it when he knocked out Felix Trinidad to become the undisputed middleweight champion in 2001 in a major upset. He did it again when he dominated heavily favored Antonio Tarver to win the light heavyweight title in 2006. And he did it yet again when he thrashed then-middleweight champ Kelly Pavlik, the big favorite, in a 2008 nontitle bout. Now, Hopkins is hoping to do it one more time when he meets newly crowned light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal. They are slated to meet Dec. 18 in Quebec City after agreeing to terms, both sides told ESPN.com on Tuesday. "We agreed on everything," Hopkins said. "There is no issue. There is no problem with my side or Pascal's side. The contracts have been drafted. It's a done deal. All I gotta do is sign." Hopkins said he is reviewing the contract, but "I'll probably sign it before Friday because the [Labor Day] holiday is coming up and I'm going away for a few days." Said Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, Hopkins' promoter, "The fact is that both sides have agreed to the terms. Now we have to get it signed, but I don't anticipate any problems. "Both fighters really wanted the fight. If you have two fighters who really want to fight each other then I think the promoters just have to cross the T's and dot the I's. I am excited to work with [Pascal promoter] Yvon Michel. I'm really looking forward to it." Don Majeski, an agent for Michel, also said the fight had been agreed to. "It's a big fight for Pascal and a big fight in Quebec," Majeski said. "Hopkins is one of the biggest stars in boxing and those are the kind of fights Pascal wants." Schaefer said he and Michel were still working out television plans. "It could be live on Showtime. We're having discussions," Schaefer said. "Or it could be pay-per-view." Schaefer said he hoped to make a deal with Showtime. He called it the "perfect platform" for the fight because the winner, particularly if it's Pascal, would be a logical opponent to face the winner of the network's Super Six World Boxing Classic super middleweight tournament, which is taking place in the weight class just below light heavyweight. Although HBO televised Pascal-Dawson, it is not interested in Pascal-Hopkins, Schaefer said. Pascal, 27, who was born in Haiti but lives in the province of Quebec, scored a major upset when he clearly won an 11-round technical decision against Chad Dawson on Aug. 14 in Montreal to retain his alphabet title and win the vacant Ring magazine title, which recognizes the lineal champion of a division. "I was impressed by one thing in Dawson that's very important," Hopkins said. "I was impressed that he came in to win no matter what and he delivered. You are judged by delivery and Pascal delivered. He bewildered, befuddled and he took Chad Dawson's confidence." Although Pascal owes Dawson a contractual rematch, he is permitted to take an interim fight and has said repeatedly he wanted to fight Hopkins.
