Unlike the Stone Solid Hagler, i quite fancy the inherent weekness of Hearns, that chin being so far removed from those slender legs, to let him down in this match, Barkley aside its no wonder guys like Olajide and Kitchen were able to put the tremors into him by finding that chin, they didnt have the ability to finish the Job, albeit the Ref almost sent for a crowbar to prize Hearns off of The Heat, probably a record clinch duration ? at his beat i think Randy can Box with Tommy and somewhere along the way catch Tommy with something that will make Tommy resemble Bambi on the Ice...unlike Olajide or Kitchen, i would expect Randy to smash that Ice and Sink Tommy, Tommy very exciting as ever..but at middleweight that Chin is a class opponents fortune cookie i think Randy hits the Jackpot ...and it could happen at any time.

Since Hearns didn't look invincible at middleweight, I think I would favor Turpin 55:45 or something like that. Two of the best jabs meet, I guess most would favor Hearns but Turpin was really awesome. Even though he lost to two lesser name fighters, he avenged both of those losses, so you might say the only person who ever beat a prime Turpin was Ray Robinson. Because when Turpin fought Bobo Olson, he was pretty much past it.
Turpin had that awesome jab and great footwork and he could punch as well. I see him beating Hearns actually.

I see Hearns building up a good lead but eventually getting caught in the latter phase of the fight.
