Waiting around after a cancelled New Year’s Eve matchup with Zsolt Erdei has made the explosive Tavoris Cloud antsy, which could spell doom for unranked challenger Gabriel Campillo. Although the four months of training could conceivably lead to ring rust in some, it’s hard to imagine that the highly regarded, yet quizzically underrated, reigning IBF Light Heavyweight champion will enter the February 18th contest at a disadvantage.
Still, Cloud would be wise to pay mind to the surprising southpaw Campillo who has only been knocked-out once in his ten-year career. The former WBA World and IBA light heavyweight champion is looking to get his hands back on some gold following a two-year stint without a title and a disappointing draw with Karo Murat for the IBF Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight title in October 2011.

I'm almost as excited by the future of sport (see the above video) as I am about the boxing that's on this week. Luckily, if there's one sport that will be spared in the Taser introduction revolution, it's boxing. Boxing is already super exciting and features lots of people suddenly falling over. But imagine the boon for less fortunate and exciting sports, like baseball...
