Default Re: Tommy Hearns was not dehydrated or weight drained vs SRL

Hearns just wasn't strong or durable enough to last the 15 with Leonard once Leonard elected to brawl him.

He wasn't strong or durable enough to last 3 with Hagler.

Saying 2 extra pounds of weight would have allowed him to win against Leonard is incredible speculation.

It's a far lesser speculation to suggest that Leonard could have carried on his onslaught for the 5 or so minutes left in the fight HAD Hearns been stronger or more durable.

Hearns says he was comfortable at 145, and makes no suggestion that 147 would have been better. He clearly implies that he doesn't think so.
