Bernard Hopkins is scheduled to fight Tavoris Cloud on Saturday at the Barclays Center in New York and was supposed to speak with the media during a press conference Wednesday.

Hopkins showed up - wearing a ski mask, hood, and sunglasses - but didn't much feel like talking to members of the press, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated. Perhaps this is part of his plan to bring down Don King's promotion company, which is backing Cloud.
