After months of waiting, Iím asking you publicly, to act like a champion and give me my shot. Give the fans what they want- an exciting light heavyweight championship bout between two young, hungry fighters..
This second bout with Tarver, who, by the way, has beaten better fighters than you in rematches, is the most unanticipated championship fight of the year. I promise you, and the fans, Dawson v.s. Cloud will be something fight fans wonít want to miss and wonít ever forget.
Itís time to pick on someone your own age.
