More:



Many felt Hearns did enough to deserve the decision in the rematch of their first epic fight, but in retrospect, a draw may have been the most reasonable result. Although hinted at in the post-fight interviews, a third fight between the two never materialized.

What a classic! There can be no complaints about the out come, the result of a draw is very fair, I feel Hearns just edged it, but you couldn't justifiably complain about Sugar Ray Leonard winning had he gotten the decision.

rorschach's picture

I can honestly see Hearns feeling he was robbed, he did more than enough to get his retribution and had it taken away by the judges.

rorschach's picture

Gonna watch again and score now.

rorschach's picture

But this should have been at least a 4 point win for Hearns from what I remember.

rorschach's picture

Yep 7 rounds to 5 Hearns but 2 10-8 rounds makes it a 4 point win for Hearns. Don't see how you can come up with a draw out of that, even if you go 6 rounds to 6 it's still a 2 point win for Hearns not a draw.

rorschach's picture

The judges were always unfairly biased for Leonard in his big fights.
