Momentum was on Calton’s side throughout Round 2 and Hager was rocked late in the round but managed to hang on. Despite taking some damage, Hager showed grit in Round 3 and landed the better punches. That was enough for Hager to get a split decision victory from the judges with scores of 29-28, 28-29, 29-28.
