Hopkins and Cloud separated at heated weigh-in (plus collage)

Phil Jay 08/03/2013

Ageing legend Bernard Hopkins weighed-in today, alongside IBF light-heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud as the two fighters near their clash at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Hopkins, who at 48 hopes to extend his record as the oldest world title holder in history, scaled 174.4lbs, whilst the younger Cloud was lighter at 173.8lbs.

With insults traded between them, both boxers had to be seperated at a heated head-to-head thereafter as the needle between young and old reach fever pitch – with the much-anticipated world title bout in New York drawing nearer.
