Tommy took risks he didn't have to, but he was an entertainer
He deserved the decision in the Leonard rematch, but he had to take a serious beating especially in the 12th to survive.
If he had Hagler's chin, he would have been unstoppable! Imagine if Hearns was undefeated with wins over Leonard, Hagler, Benitez, Duran, Hill
