Post Comments Thread For: Hopkins-Cloud: Does the Young Man Get His Way this Time?

By Thomas Gerbasi - There is no topic off limits when talking to Bernard Hopkins. So while other athletes who are getting up in years may get offended when the taboo topic of age comes up, “The Executioner” is more than willing to not only talk about – but celebrate – being 48 years old in a young man’s sport.

“As people keep saying 48, 48, 48, I want them to keep mentioning that because someone across the world is gonna say ‘wow, this man is 48 years old and he’s doing this and he’s winning. I’m inspired.’”

He’s right. There are plenty of people (and you can count me in that group of 40-somethings) that look at what Hopkins has done since turning the Big 4-0 and simply smile. It’s not an ear-to-ear grin like when George Foreman shocked Michael Moorer to win the heavyweight title in 1994, but it’s a sneaky, sly grin, one that matches the style of Hopkins during the years in which he was supposed to be enjoying the fruits of a 20 successful defense reign atop the middleweight division.

But who knew that after back-to-back losses to Jermain Taylor, he was just getting started. In the process he took the time when boxers’ legacies get destroyed or at least tarnished, and he made his even greater. And he knows it.

“I’m doing something that ain’t supposed to be done,” said Hopkins. “Now it becomes something different, and that’s what I am: different. That’s strange to people that are ordinary. Everybody looks at me different and thinks that it’s a problem because they are ordinary. And that word just means that there are a lot of you.” [Click Here To Read More]

Cloud is overrated. Has fought nobody of real great threat and is protected by Don King. Until now. Hopkins is going to take him to school. This is going to be an execution of the old school, just like the Pavlik fight. I remember people comparing Pavlik to Hagler before that fight... how wrong they were!

Cloud has nothing to threaten Hopkins with
he won't get off vs Hopkins like he did vs Woods, no way
Glen arguable beat/drew with him and Campillo spanked him
not only see Hopkins winning this, but putting some hurt on Cloud
Cloud's easy to hit and he's not that fast, Hopkins can find him
expecting a clear Hopkins UD in this if the judges are honest

I don't see it happening. Clouds boxing IQ is about as much a Rainman but his special skill isn't boxing. Hopkins will outwork Cloud like Campillo did but without the early knockdowns.

Once again we will see why Hopkins is One of the greatest to lace up gloves.

I don't see Cloud stopping Hopkins. And I damn sure don't see him out boxing Hopkins.

But, we've already been shown that Cloud can be beaten, clearly, and still be awarded the decision.

I have a feeling that Hopkins is going to frustrate Cloud just like he did Pascal. Cloud has not proved anything really. He's sloppy and one dimensional. He's slow too. It will get ugly and Hopkins will win and Cloud's mom will pass out again and Tavoris will just let her lay there like the piece of sh*t he is.
