Isn't he a 7-Time World Professional Boxing Champion in the Welterweight, Light Middleweight, Middleweight, Super-Middleweight, and Light-Heavyweight Divisions? Isn't that some sort of record? He is still boxing professionally now and is pushing 50. People tend to only remember him for his losses to Leonard and Hagler. What about that draw with Leonard which I seriously thought he won based on the two knockdowns he had? I am captivated by his unique boxing style... this man is one of the lankiest fellows I have ever seen. He is 6'1" and yet was darn near unbeatable... he was in The Welterweight Division and was a champion. So for a 6'1" man to weigh between 140 and 147 lbs. YET... be so hard to beat... he is inredible. It is believed that he had one of the hardest punches in boxing! I reckon he is the toughest lanky man who has ever lived... BUT DOES "THE HIT MAN" EVEN GET ANY RECOGNITION AS ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS? Hardly anyone I know who likes boxing hasn't even heard of or mentioned Thomas "Hit Man" Hearns. So is The Motor City Cobra yet to have all of the recogition he deserves? I'd really like to know! He is a truly original and innovative boxer!
