This one will be close in my opinion. Clouds higher activity and better physical attributes should overcome Hopkins' guile at times, but Hopkins is obviously smart enough to tag Cloud a lot in the same way Campillo did.

I predict a very hard to score fight, with half the rounds being neck and neck.
Yeah, eventually age catches up to everyone. This isn't a 39 year old Marquez going against a 33 year old Pac. This is a 48 year old Hopkins against a prime, still hungry 31 year old just coming off a bad fight, which will make him feel he has to redeem himself. Not the best time for BHop in my opinion.

I have a feeling he will lose this one and it might be the first clear loss in some time. It will be a year since his last fight, and it's impossible to keep going at the elite level forever. Impossible. Ageing is the one certainty in life.

I've said that in the past though. If Hopkins comes in looking still ok, then he will beat Cloud. As long as he doesn't take any right hands early on before warming up, he should figure him out quick enough.
