no way in hell was he anything close to the version of the Hearns fight. I remember the following morning Marvin was on either GMA or the Today show and Leoanrd was seated next to him. marvin looked him in the eye and said "you cheated the public by refusing to face me". Sugar didnt object; he didnt have the courage to.
When were they on GMA? A day after Hagler and Leonard in 1987? I didn't know that.
