Cloud better not fight like he did Campillo

I expect Cloud’s activity to be the difference but maybe Hopkins, even at 48, has one more Kelly Pavlick-style ass-whooping left in his pocket. Cloud is definitely vulnerable to a skilled technician like Hopkins, but I’m just not sure the old man can do enough to win a fight anymore.

Bernard Hopkins’s legacy is already WELL secured and will be remembered threw the ages. 25 years in the PRO boxing, 11 years of record reign as the undisputed middleweight champion of the world with a record of 20 world title defences. The first and only man so far to conquer all 4 major world title belts (WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO) and the Lineal crown and have them all at same time. Hopkins became world light heavyweight champion at age 41 and then he regained the world heavyweight title at a record age of 46 and is still great. Over the years having in an impressive way defeated over 14 recognised world champions – Oscar De La Hoya, Felix Trinidad, Roy Jones Jr, Antonio Tarver, Glen Johnson, Ronald “Winky” Wright, Jean Pascal, William Joppy, Kelly Pavlik, Keith Holmes, Lupe Aquino, John David Jackson, Simon Brown & Carl Daniels along with numerous top contenders including Howard Eastman, Enrique Ornelas, Robert Allen x2, Segundo Mercado, Wayne Powell, Antwun Echols x2, Andrew Council and many more good opponents so Bernard Hopkins have one of the most impressive victory records of all times and will be very remembered for all those fights. The same with his 6 losses on his record and only 2 of them are real losses (1st Roy Jones Jr fight and 2nd Chad Dawson fight), the rest where fights his opponents (Jermain Taylor x2, Joe Calzaghe among) got away with some cheap decisions and not at all mastered him in any way. Bernard Hopkins is a hard and one of the most difficult boxer ever to fight.

Like it ot not but Bernatd Hopkins is right. Few top fighters in the history have been so dedicated to the sport and been in top physical shape for all pro careeer fights as Hopkins have been. Hopkins have always fought hard and done evrything he can to be on top of the game. There is a reason why he have been so sucsessful in the ring over his career of impressive 25 years in the profesional ring and been a winner all the time and that is hunger, dicipline and old school skills. Hopkins is by far an highly impressive athlete. His era rivals like Roy Jones Jr, James Toney, Glen Johnson, Felix Trinidad or Oscar De La Hoya all made Hall of Fame careers but they all went down in performance unlike Hopkins who continued to work hard for his career achivments even after physical prime time.

Bernard Hopkins, 6-time world champion in 2 weight classes????? I’m a big fan of Bernard Hopkins’s boxing career and I would like to see him as a 6-timer but he is a 3-time recognised world champion in middleweight and Light heavyweight. The authour did not check the facts right and doubled it (!) Altough If Hopkins wins he will become a 4-time world champion. I will support Hopkins to win against undefeated champ Tavoris Cloud.

Anyone notice 104-115 in the background…. It’s an omen

Nobody is stronger than Cloud at his weight division but he can be out-boxed-as the Campillo fight showed-& that’s what Hopkins is counting on…but i think that if Cloud put strong pressure & body punching, from the get go, he could out-hustle the old man…
