Antonio Tarver plans to make life imitate art

Tarver hopes to become undisputed world heavyweight champion

FORMER light-heavyweight world champion Antonio Tarver hopes to accomplish the feats of the on-screen character he played in the 2006 film Rocky Balboa and win the world heavyweight title.

Tarver played the fictional undisputed heavyweight champion of the world Mason Dixon across from Sylvester Stallone.

Speaking ahead of his heavyweight clash with Steve Cunningham on Friday night [August 14] at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, Tarver spoke of his plans to rule the banner division at the age of 46.
