Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns are two of the names that make up that legendary quartet of 80’s fighters. The other two of course are Roberto Duran and “Sugar” Ray Leonard. But that’s another time, let’s focus on what is in front of us right now. Hagler versus Hearns, the fight that went on to be known simply as “The War” and after watching all two and a half rounds of this fight you’ll understand. Hearns exhibits his beautifully fluid movement throughout the first round while Hagler says “ya, you can dance, but I’ll knock your goddamned head off”. And that’s precisely how the fight plays out, with the “Motor City Cobra" showcasing his infamous boxing technique while Hagler just continues to come through everything. At the end of the first round there’s a stat regarding Hagler’s last loss: it was almost ten years before. Enjoy.
