Bernard Hopkins will try to make history again as he aims to break his own record for being the oldest fighter to win a major world title when he faces unbeaten Tavoris Cloud for a light heavyweight crown on Saturday.
The all-American showdown for Cloud's International Boxing Federation throne pits the 31-year-old champion, making his fifth title defense, against a boxer old enough to be his father.
"I'm not counting age. Everybody else is counting it," said 48-year-old Hopkins, who has won only one of his past four bouts.
