    Thomas Hearns

    1. Pipino Cuevas - Pipino's brutal reign of destruction comes to a crushing end. Has there ever been a more devastating combination of power and speed and cat like reflex on display? It was as if Hearns had been constructed in a laboratory this night so telling and frightening were his physical gifts.

    2. Roberto Duran - In the conversation for most impressive KO in the history of boxing given what Duran had done not only prior, but also thereafter. Duran was virtually impossible to knock out yet Hearns turned the trick with ease on this shocking night in 1984.

    3. Wilfredo Benitez - Benitez gave SRL one very tough night and had only got stronger since moving up one division north. In his previous outing he had comprehensively outboxed and outfought Roberto Duran and many were starting to think he could outbox and outslick Marvin Hagler for a record fourth world title. Hearns put paid to that with precise tactical restraint and no shortage of speed and skill despite breaking his vaunted right hand in the mid rounds.

    Greg Page

    1. Gerrie Coetzee - Page, at the crossroads again, stands flatfooted and outfights Coetzee while shaking off any amount of tremendous right hands with aplomb while landing many of his own underrated right hand bombs to leave Coetzee a crumpled unconscious mass on the canvas.

    2. Renaldo Snipes - Has a lot less drama getting past Snipes than either Holmes or Witherspoon had. An in form Snipes comfortably outboxed despite Page easing off the pedal late.

    3. Marty Monroe - In his 15th pro fight and first against a world class opponent Page overwhelms the Ring #7 rated heavyweight with his great combination of speed and power.

    Edwin Rosario

    1. Livingstone Bramble - Coming off a hotly disputed loss to Hector Camacho Rosario takes on the P4P #3 and highly regarded Livingstone Bramble. Rosario completely dismantles Bramble in a completely dominant two round execution. Rosario shows he is in the conversation when it comes to the greatest puncher in 135 pound history.

    2. Hector Camacho - Rosario hurts Camacho multiple times with single punches and has him looking more like a track star than boxer while taking him to a hotly disputed decision. Many believe Rosario's stunning power turned a switch in Camacho this night, one that was never flipped again.

    3. Howard Davis Jr - Davis is one of the two fastest boxers on the planet and in the form of his life after deciding to move less and punch with more authority. Davis has not been beaten in four years but Rosario drops him early and late to win a close decision in a very well contested fight.

    The man was an alltime great fighter who took 4000 full power right hands from top peak Hitman Hearns before his chin finally gave out and he wobbled. Then 1 more full power shot put him down. AND HE GOT UP!!!!!!!!Hearns never hit anyone that many full shots and did nothing to them.
    Cuevas was a lot faster than thought and threw from very odd to defend against angles. He kind of threw a left uppercuthook. I have never seen anyone punch so hard that you can SEE his whole body into it. Cuevas destroyed the welter top 10 while Palomino fought chumps except for Muniz. Pipino is taking Gray and comp. out in 2 and Hearns takes 10 for an older gray. There is a lot of bias against Pipino because of Hearns demo of him. But watch what it took. He was never the same again. But in his prime, whewwwwwwww!!!!!!! The 1sr 2 sets I ever bought were Frank & PIPINO. Can't beat them. Pipino would kill not elite guys like Curry the guys today, etc. And against the elite with his granite chin and awkwardness and ability to land his punches, I give prime Pipino a shot vs anyone.
    Watch his title winning fight KO2 vs Espada. That left hook!!!!! Just watch it then see him tear apart Weston who yrs later was on the way to beating Hearns when Tommy thumbed him tore his retina and ended his career. Then watch his brutal beating of Espada in the second fight where at the end Angel's face looks like a painting by Goya.
