The Showdown: Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Thomas Hearns I
Leonard was behind on points entering the thirteenth, when--inspired by a legendary tirade from Angelo Dundee ("You're blowin' it, son!")--he drops Hearns and finishes him with a relentless flurry of punches a round later. 23,618 were on hand in the parking lot of Caesar's Palace to witness the titanic struggle between two of the greatest welterweights of all time. Hearns and Leonard would not get back together in a ring until 1989.
