Hearns is one of the best 147lbers ever and is THE best 154lber ever.

There's nothing overrated about him or how he'd do head-to-head against the best ever in those two divisions.

listen guys: Hearns was a good fighter. but. he lost all his big fights. against Hagler and against Ray Leonard. and Iran Barkley iced him twice. So pleeaaassseee stop overrating Hearns. thank you.
Do I think he can give a lot of guys big troubles? Yes. Do I think he would beat everybody from other eras? hell no. He lost the big fights in his own era. Knocking out a Duran who moved up in weight doesn't do it for me. Hearns is wayyyy overrated here on this site.
you are a complete moron.

that hearns lost all his biggest fights is one of the biggest and most obviously false myths in boxing history. he lost his only two FOTY but he won more huge fights than most fighters could ever dream of, even atgs.

he beat roberto duran in a huge title unification, he beat the undefeated top p4p fighter virgil hill in a big fight (which he was an underdog in), he won (but got robbed) against SRL in their huge rematch, wilfred benitez was a huge fight, pipino cuevas was a big fight. hell even roldan and andries were big fights just based on the historic factor involved.

hearns had massive success in big fights, to say otherwise just shows you only know boxing by watching documentarys and bad ones at that.

to say he got iced by barkley twice is plain false, their remacth went to a decision. the fact that you not only dont know that but would make a wild guess at the fights outcome shows how clueless you are.

to cap things off, all the statements you quoted are indeed 100% accurate. hearns had a nightmare style for RJJ and he would demolish both mayweather and pacquiao with ease. pacquiao and mayweather arent even close to the best WWs of all time, hearns surely ranks higher than both of them and would beat both of them h2h.

thats not overrating hearns, like i said there are more than half a dozen WWs who would beat pacquiao and mayweather at the weight. it simply isnt their best weight, just like 175 wasnt hearns' best weight and there are a bunch of LtHWs who would beat him. and hearns holds a win at 175 thats better than anything pacquiao or mayweather achieved at WW.

so pleeeeeeeease stop being a moron and educate yourself on boxing before making a fool of yourself again. thank you.

A 5'6 guy trying to fight Hearns at medium range is going to have a short and painful night.

I dont see any way Pacquiao would have more success than Ray Leonard

Tommy Hearns right hand could put anyone from 147 to 168 asleep but he could definitely be beatable by some of the best in the past 20 years. His chin was as weak as his right hand was strong.

Roy Jones speed and power would of dominated and knocked Hearns out in my opinion.

Barkley was at 168 and Hagler at 160 stupid ****. He would clean out 147 today easily. He would beat Mayweather and Pac easily. You are retarded.
