While SB Nation's unofficial scorecard only had Bernard Hopkins up on Tavoris Cloud by a single round after seven, it was starting to feel like the fight was slipping away from Cloud.
Hopkins has been able to land clean shots and outclass Cloud as the fight wore on. Hopkins again landed the cleaner shots, letting Cloud pin him to the ropes and slipping his punches and landing slick little uppercuts. Cloud landed a big right hand seconds later though as Cloud picked up the pace and started to bring the fight back closer to even after it felt like things were getting away from him.
Round: 10-9 Cloud
