Longtime boxing coach Coach Schultz have been training for over thirty years and he still is very active in the sport training the young and upcoming fighters of today took to time out to watch Hopkins vs Dawson one and two and stated that. "Bernard needs to sit his ass down somewhere. It's time to pass it on to these young boys, he has all the knowledge of the sport of boxing but when it's your time, that's just it, it's time to go. Ten years ago he would have mopped the floor with him. Now his body is working against his ass."
Hopkins will have his hands full when he challenges The young and powerful IBF lightheavyweight champion, Tavoris Cloud. This is a fight Hopkins and the younger fighters have been avoiding for years. "Cloud is going to whip Hopkins ass, that Jean Pascal guy can't fight himself out a empty room, that's why he took that fight. That boy is gonna bust that ass." said Schultz I have no choice but to agree with his choice of winner.
