One of the most impressive performances by a challenger in history. Make no mistake about it, Cuevas was a beast in those days.. But Hearns annihilated him in 2 rounds.

I think that version of Hearns beats both Mayweather and Pacquiou.

He was a lethal weapon at welterweight!

Even in the 1980s, when (Ray) Leonard, (Marvin) Hagler, and (Thomas) Hearns were the stars of the sport, the heavyweight division was still relevant.

Hearns was only 21 when he won the title from Cuevas. That in itself is amazing. You don't see performances like that from 21 year old fighters today.

Hearn's interestiung stance seemed to me as a bait where he would counter thenm with a welterweight right hand with as much power as a cruiserweight.

Definately one of hearns best wins. And Cuevas could fight.

My one complaint is that i prefer his gold kronk trunks,

Years ago I read that was exactly why Hearns kept that left low.
