Brother of Bao Xin 鮑信. During the Battle of Sishui Pass Bao Zhong was sent by his brother to attack Hua Xiong and kill him before Sun Jian would get there and achieve great merit. Going secretly along a by-road with three thousand men, as soon as he reached the pass, Bao Zhong offered battle. Hua Xiong responded by charging with five hundred armoured horseman, crying "Flee not, rebel!" Bao Zhong grew afraid and turned back but Hua Xiong cut Bao Zhong down with his sword. His head was sent to Dong Zhuo.
