Cloud should not be ranked into the top ten! Get Dacanau out of retirement to fight the Haitian!

I bet Bellew can’t believe his luck.

Bika Groves!!!!!

Finally Cloud fights a live body.

Stevenson is going to clobber Cloud.

Cloud looked awful against Campillo, but he has a chance because Stevenson can be put to sleep.

If Stevenson knocks out Cloud it will make a big statement, I don’t put much stock in his demolition of Jawson.

Swedish Boxing Fan

Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 18 KO’s) is the favourite to win here, no doubts but I would not couint out the former IBF world light heavyweight champion Tavoris “Thunder” Cloud” (24-1, KO’s 19) that easily. Cloud is a strong punching fighter who I belive wan’ts redemption after his outboxing lesson from legend Bernard Hopkins and even if Cloud’s skills are somewhat limited he is still a tough fighter and I belive we will see an hard fought battle.

Cloud had better hone the defensive skills

Hopefully the WBC sanction a fight between 168Lb champion Sakio Bika & #1 contender George Groves, otherwise what’s the point of mandatory’s?

Bellew what, really what about him

@ sc- wtf! Lol

Cloud also lost to Campillo if not for blind judges.

Shame for Stephenson that Bute-Pascal are taken since that would likely be the voluntary moneyspinner for him.

Mismatch! Cloud got beat up badly by old man bhop. I think he gets stop by brutal ko!

Getting knocked out

You are a World class boxer, if you don’t respect another fighter, you get knocked out, simples, you get beat, you lost, no excuses.

Wasn’t he coming from a stoppage from the feather-fisted ward?

The Real

Supreme Court

Dawson did not lose his chin against Stephenson, he lost his respect for his power and paid the price.
Fan need to stop making excuses and down grading Dawson as to why Dawson lost Stephenson..
Bottom line Adonis hits very hard and he has just proven that he can KO a world class opponent.
If cloud make the same mistake Dawson did in disrespecting Stephenson power he will find himself KTFO also .

The fight will be exciting but Cloud isn’t really deserving. Just got beat by Hopkins and anyone who saw him fight Campillo knows he lost that one too.

Posted July 10, 2013 7:59 pm 

Supreme Court

Don’t count Cloud out so fast:
He only had trouble with two boxers (Campillo and Hopkins)…Stevenson is not a boxer…
Cloud has power against stationary target, he has a good chin.
Stevenson’s team calculated Cloud has faded….This could be a huge mistake…
The Canadian team’s philosophy is not based on style, but on the last performance of the opponent. And this is the same team that put Pascal in front of Hopkins; Bute in front of Froch; Stevenson in front of Dawson. The three opponents were coming from losses…
The only one to win was Stevenson, and most likely because Dawson had lost his chin….
The only thing going for Stevenson on this bout is history….
Or the Hopkins’ curse!
ALL fighters who fought Hopkins in the past decade and + got ruined or retired hastily!
I say ALL!
Go figure what it is…
It is what it is…

Who cares what the WBC says. You are The Ring Champion and that’s all that matters

Fight Aficionado

If this happens it’s a good fight. Cloud looks like he peaked years ago unfortunately, so I’d go with Stevenson.

Posted July 10, 2013 6:04 pm 


Quick extra payday fight for Stevenson before he fights the real deal Bellew.

Posted July 10, 2013 5:52 pm 


This could be good news for Bellew, stylistically I think he beats Cloud and its a much easier fight than Stevenson for Bellew if Cloud wins.

While I’m here! How about Bika/Groves as well?

Bellew vs Shumenov on the undercard would work well!

Posted July 10, 2013 3:05 pm 


This should be a damn good fight! Bellew should fight on the undercard to introduce himself to the U.S., thus building interest for his fight against the winner.

Posted July 10, 2013 3:04 pm 


Bellew can fight him late, Cloud is nothing, Bellew would knock him out.
