How would people rate Tommy Hearns' ability to fight in adversity?

Hearns was a true warrior who always dug deep. Even early in his career against Randy Shields, a green Hearns came through a tough test. Against Leonard, he almost got stopped in the 7th round, yet he recovered and almost won. He even got up after getting dropped by Hagler, despite being completely out of it. Against Roldan, Dewitt, Leonard 2, Barkley 2, Delgado and the Virgil Hill, Tommy fought through adversity, injuries and won titles
