To be honest I didn't really rate the first knockdown though, I didn't feel that Hearns deserved to win that round 10:8, I probably wouldn't have called it if I were ref.
If you watch carefully, both connect with right hands; Hearn's is the better shot, Leonard backs up hurt but the follow up right hand doesn't make contact, it skims over his head but Leonard goes down from the momentum.
If anyone deserved that fight, it was Hearns. But it was razor close.
