I accidentally recorded the HBO Latino version for this fight! And at first it was like Shit! But in the end, sort of glad I missed the pom-pom shaking commentary that is typical of HBO.

115-113 or 7-5 Hopkins. MUCH closer than what some had. I think both did well. In fact, after 10 rounds I had it 5-5, with Hopkins closing the show strong in the last two rounds. Surprised Harold gave the 12th to Cloud. Hopkins just did a little more in spurts to win close, but clear. Cloud could have maybe gotten a draw on a biased card if he would have done more bullying. I thought it was going to be dirty and rough, but the ref took good control early. Hopkins deserved this win and the judges 117-110, 116-112 were very good. I thought 117-110 for Hopkins was a little too wide.

I have never seen this ref before if I am not mistaken...and he did a good job for sure! I had it 116-112. Very surprised by Cloud not punching - the way he fought after that cut should have been his game plan for the whole night. But there is something about Hopkins that makes you think I guess.....

I think Cloud's mistake that cost him was he tried too much to be like Hopkins and out-think him when like we said he should have been bullying more. By bulling more, Hopkins would not have time to think and set his traps for less experianced Cloud. When you get Bernard thinking, you are never gonna out smart him, you have to physically outwork him, and even that is a challenge, because Hopkins will still most of the time, do a great job defensively.

Well said Professor. Many claim to love boxing but don't appreciate "the sweet science". And Bernard exemplifies that


so many who follow the sport...and even participate in it on the highest levels don't know shit about boxing. roger mayweather was right. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

They were really pressed to dismiss what has been said and clarify what is "really" going on. Lol
Fuck em. Competition is a good thing. I think I'm bout to watch some Arrested Development anyway.


hbo invested so much in sucking pacquiao's dick....they basically treated floyd like shit the whole time letting merchant ask bullshit questions and stuff....floyd bounces. what did they expect?

MAN...yall should see the recent Malignaggi video from boxingscene...dude went off!

And what tha fuck does Tarver have to say? Where has that mofo been all this time? Pauile took some shots at Thurman in that interview. I need to find the video that I can actually post on the board, it was WILD!


great interview. that just made me like that dude more. paulie pulled no punches and kept it very real. nothing he said was a lie.

IMHO HBO has lost some key pieces with Mayweather being the major one. Take tonight's fight for example: the commentary sucked. With Merchant stepping away and Stewart passing its different.


steward passing was the only real loss. they would suck much less if lampley retired and they stopped trying to force feed the public their guy.

Tarver was tweeting a bit before the fight, discrediting Hopkins and saying he's disrespectful for this that and the third. Then he sent a tweet out saying that he wants a rematch with Hopkins and that he's dropping back down to get all his titles back.

I think he's delusional, I don't know who he beats at 175 right now


i like tarver. i thought he beat the african cat. it's too bad he tested positive. he really shot himself in the foot with that. his commentary was good too.
