Tavoris Cloud Survives Tough Big Bear Training Camp

Undefeated IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris "Thunder" Cloud (24-0, 19 KOs) took his last run this morning in Big Bear Lake, Calif., prior to departing for Brooklyn, N.Y., to make his fifth title defense on March 9 at Barclays Center against future Hall of Famer Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins (52-6-2, 32 KOs). (HBO, 9:30 p.m. ET/PT)

Cloud is shown here in front of the beautiful Bear Mountain Ski Resort.

Cloud, from Tallahassee, Fla., and his new trainer Abel Sanchez faced a number of challenges at their high-altitude training camp perched in the mountains east of Los Angeles.  They braved a bitterly cold January followed by heavy snowfall that Cloud noted "was beautiful."

February brought on what Cloud said "was not a good time to be a black man in Big Bear," when an intense California-wide manhunt lead police to Cloud's scenic mountain oasis in search of former Los Angeles Police Department cop Christoper Dorner--a fugitive with a $1 million bounty on his head after being suspected of going on a killing spree--whose truck was found in the snow-covered woods near Big Bear Lake.

Police got into a gunfight with the outlaw on Glass Road in the Big Bear area before subsequently burning a cabin where he had holed up on Feb. 12.

No doubting Hopkins is HOF material but I hate seeing him fight, well hold fall over feign injury. Hope Cloud finishes his career once and for all

Style wise, Hopkins is all wrong for Cloud ... fortunately for Cloud, Hopkins is 48.

[QUOTE=gingerbreadman;13103520]A few people have been saying that GGG put some serious hurt on him in sparring, is that true?[/QUOTE] If it isn't people will run with it anyway.
