QUOTE (BrutUalBK @ May 11 2013, 03:19 PM) *
You have a valid point except that Roy fought Tarver 3 times, did TH go all out to rematch Hagler?? That proves something to me from the mind of TH (who I'm a huge fan of), it basically said that he knew he wasn't better and would get put to sleep again. Sure Hearns accomplished more but in terms of the mental between them we can see that not even Hearns believed he was better.


That is a myth HEARNS NEVER WANTED A REMATCH-- I was a kid in Detroit at the time and I can tell you he wanted a rematch---According to my understanding a rematch was eyed for November 1986 after Hearns made quick work of the #1 contender JAMES "BLACK GOLD SCHULER) the same night Hagler fought Beast Mugabi and said that was his toughest fight.. he even hinted of quitting. Hearns eyed a rematch and it was talk by his manager that Hearns would get a rematch.. then Ray Leonard who was on hand to see a more vulnerable hagler came out of retirement to want a shot at HAGLER.. Hagler chose Ray Leonard

these are some quotes from Hearns in the Chicago Tribune 1986 ``I`ll go right after him again,`` Hearns promised, noting strategy that many thought ill-founded last year. ``I`m a different person than the one who fought Hagler last year. I feel great, my legs are strong and I can execute everytime.

``I have something to prove. There`s never a day that goes by that I don`t think about a rematch. It was difficult for me to train with Hagler here. I kept thinking about him and it was hard to concentrate on Shuler.``

Hagler response to a Hearns rematch Hagler, who initially said he would think about whether he wants a rematch with Hearns, later added: ``I`ve worked through them all and I don`t think anyone`s left. I`m going around again.``.
