Brandon Rios and Manny Pacquiao had brought a fair amount of action to the first two round of their fight, but Rios needed to start figuring things out in the third as Pacquiao had been landing some hard shots and troubling Rios with his speed.
Pacquiao continually got in with his lead left and kept Rios from really getting off with significant combinations in the first half of the round.
Rios did land a good hook and then some good follow-up shots in the clinch before sticking Manny with another left hook as he was starting to get hit with return shots.
A better round for Rios than the previous two, but still a Pacquiao round.
Round: 10-9 Pacquiao
Fight: 30-27 Pacquiao
