After the Sergey Kovalev vs. Blake Caparello fight, a short confrontation was conducted between the American–Bernard Hopkins–and the Russian, Kovalev.

With that being said, here are three tactics Hopkins should keep in mind for his upcoming bout that might actually help him get a win over his undefeated opponent.
