    They really don't, pal.
    Those big names back in the 80 s, Ray Leonard, Duran, Hagler, Duran!!
    What a set of fighters.

    certainly not

    Hearns' aura of invincibility had been shattered more than two years before by Hagler

    He was much slower by then and his chin strength had also eroded

    Roldan would have done well to keep his gloves up high

    Watching the fight I remember Roldan hurting Hearns and thinking, he's one shot away from knocking him out. It never came
