Boxing: Hopkins breaks record again
Sunday 10 March 2013
Bernard Hopkins broke his own record by again becoming the oldest man to win a world title when he beat Tavoris Cloud on points to claim the IBF light-heavyweight crown.
The 48-year-old, who has been linked with a bout against Wales' Nathan Cleverly, took control against his fellow American after the sixth round and won by a unanimous decision at the Barclays Center, New York.
The former undisputed middleweight champion first became the oldest boxer to hold a world title when he defeated Canada's Jean Pascal for the WBC light-heavyweight championship in May 2011, before Chad Dawson beat him to take away the title.
