 Career

Cloud started boxing at 16 and had a 46-8 amateur record, representing his country at the 2000 U19 world championships. He lost the final of the 2002 US-championships to Curtis Stevens.

His record is 18-0 (17) including a KO of Aaron Williams conqueror Jose Luis Herrera.

On August 8, 2008, at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, Cloud defeated Julio César González by technical knockout in the tenth round in an IBF light heavyweight title eliminator.[1] Cloud set the tempo of the fight early, hurting Gonzalez with a right cross in dominating the first round. It was more of the same in the next two rounds, although Gonzalez made the third round the most competitive. He kept the fight in the middle of the ring, but Cloud kept sending him back with uppercuts and left hooks. With González taking a beating for the majority of the fight, in round ten, the referee stopped the fight after Cloud landed a right hand.[2]
