Hopkins vs Cloud live results: Round 3

Rich Kane - Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions

Round-by-round results from Bernard Hopkins vs. Tavoris Cloud. This post covers the action from round 3.

With the SB Nation scorecard even at a round a piece after two, Bernard Hopkins and Tavoris Cloud came out, still trying to establish the pattern the fight would follow.

Cloud was able to open up a bit early on but Hopkins did his usual slick job of getting out without taking much damage from it. There is a chance that Hopkins' slow pace might fail to impress when Cloud is throwing flurries, even if they're missing. But Hopkins did dig with a hard body shot in the middle of the round. Hopkins worked the jab again and did land a hard right hand over the defense of Cloud.

It remained a tight fight through the round, but both men landed some hard shots after the bell to end the round had sounded, drawing warnings from the ref about "cheapshots" and "bullshit" when they returned to the corner.

Round: 10-9 Cloud
Fight: 29-28 Cloud
