Hagler vs Hearns – Greatest 3 Rounds In The History Of The Middleweight Division

Marvelous Marvin Hagler against Thomas “The Hit Man” Hearns was the biggest “Superfight” of 1985 with Sugar Ray Leonard still retired until his second comeback against Hagler in 1987.

Hearns had the year before retained his World Light-Middleweight title having destroyed the great Roberto Duran in just two rounds.  The bout was ended emphatically with Duran hitting the canvas head first which stunned the Boxing world as the year before in 1983 he had gone the distance with a prime Hagler in what was a very close fight,.

The expectation going into this fight was that this would be a very technical fight which was totally the opposite of what occurred on the night.

33 years on from 1985 and this fight is still looked upon in many quarters as the best 3 rounds in middleweight history between two fighters who are most definitely part of the golden era of Boxing.
