2008-08-08 : Tavoris Cloud 174 lbs beat Julio Cesar Gonzalez 174 lbs by TKO at 1:50 in round 10 of 12


Unbeaten Floridian Tavoris Cloud pitched a shutout, landing left hooks and right hand power shots all night, giving Mexico's former WBO Light Heavyweight champion Julio Cesar Gonzalez a consistent beating all night (despite being taken past the fifth round for the first time in his career). Gonzalez' granite jaw was in evidence as he absorbed hellacious shots from Cloud in rounds five and six. At 2:50 of round ten, with Cloud landing unanswered right hand leads and Gonzalez absorbing unanswered punishment on the ropes, the referee had seen enough and waved the bout off. Gonzalez had suffered a cut and a puff under his left eye, from round five on. The technical knockout victory made Cloud the first Tallahassee native to attain a No. 1 world ranking and become the mandatory challenger for the IBF world championship in the Light Heavyweight division. It was the first time that Gonzalez had been stopped.
