Boxing – ABC Review – Welterweight Title – Tomas Hearns VS Sugar Ray Leonard


This video is ABC’s Wide World of Sports review of the September 16, 1981 World Unification welterweight title fight featuring WBC Champ Sugar Ray Leonard vs WBA Champ Thomas “Hitman” Hearns…..as ABC boxing commentators Alex Wallau and Jim Lampley take an indepth analysis of the entire fight and its key rounds….providing wonderful insight into the ebb and flow of this historic fight between two boxing legends during the golden age of boxing from 1964 – 1995,

During this era, there were what was known as The Fantastic Four boxers of the lower weight divisions of boxing which included Roberto Duran, Wilfred Benitez, Sugar Ray Leonard and Thomas Hearns….as these super great legends of the ring all fought each other…..sometimes over and over.  This lil ole Chiweenie Sportsphile would have to include Marvin Hagler in this group and call it The Fantastic Five…..but regardless, each of these boxing legends all fought at the same time period…..which made for incredible match-ups and even greater analysis’ as seen in this video herewith.
