Hopkins vs. Cloud Agreement Reached For March 9th

By Ernest Gabion

Los Angeles, California - BoxingScene.com has been advised that an agreement has been reached for Tavoris Cloud to defend his IBF light heavyweight title against Bernard Hopkins on March 9th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Showtime will televise. The fight is pending, as the IBF has yet to sanction the fight as a title bout.

Hopkins (52-6-2, 32KOs), 47-years-old, has been inactive since a his twelve round majority decision loss to Chad Dawson in April. Cloud (24-0, 19KOs), age 30, has been away from the ring since controversial split decision victory over Gabriel Campillo in February.

[QUOTE=Jack Napier;12821637]have you seen that fight? if so, are you saying you think Cloud actually won?[/QUOTE] No I'm saying how did Cloud rob Campillo?

Can't really hate on this fight, Cloud has that belt and is a top guy. Should be Campillo but this will do.

I keep thinking something's going to happen like in the first Pascal and Dawson fight at this Cloud bout resulting in a rematch later this year.
