Default hearns-Kalambay in a unification match

Who was better in 88? Tommy still looked pretty sharp when he was caught by kalambay. He was very fast with his hands and Kalambay was a good a boxer as Sugar Ray and the most proven middleweight with several meaningful wins. Kalambay was for real but not as dangerous with the left and the right.

I think Tommy had better resiliency than most people give him credit for but the two back to fights with Roldan and Barkley were for him, brutal and quickly went on the downslide soon after.

Could the Tommy Hearns of the Barkley fight have successfully unified the middleweight title or was kalambay on a streak too hot to stop?

i was pretty impressed with tommy's body work on Barkley and have to imagine this would slow kalambay. But kalambay was hard as a rock so I don't know.

Was Sumbu too good a boxer for 15 rounds or would Tommy eventually catch up to him?
