Is Cloud-Pascal in play for Oct. 15?

RingTV.com has learned that an IBF defense by light heavyweight Tavoris Cloud of Miami against an opponent to be determined is being considered for a venue in South Florida on Oct. 15.

Cloud’s promoter, Don King, has been in negotiations with Yvon Michel, the promoter of ex-titlist Jean Pascal for a bout. But it is unclear whether Pascal is man being targeted for October.

Cloud’s defense is being considered as part of a split-site double-headerĀ  whose main event would feature WBC counter part Bernard Hopkins against challenger Chad Dawson on HBO pay per view.
