Tommy Hearns was a great fighter no question but he came up short in his two biggest fights.
TKO loss in the 14th round to Sugar Ray Leonard at 147 lbs.
KO loss in the 3rd round to Marvin Hagler at 160 lbs.
Hearns does have other notable wins in his carreer.
TKO win in the 2nd round to Roberto Duran at 154 lbs.
MD win in the 15th round to Wilfred Benitez at 154 lbs.
Cotto also came up short in his two biggest fights.
TKO loss in the 12th to Manny Pacquiao at 145 lbs.
UD loss in the 12th to Floyd Maywether at 154 lbs.
Cotto alo has notable wins.
UD win in the 12th against Sugar Shane Mosley at 147 lbs.
TKO win in the 9th against Antonio Margarito at 154 lbs.
Carreers are simular in my opinion. Both lost the two biggest fights in their carreers but will both be in the boxing hall of fame someday. Cant a boxer just be great? When did it become all about titles and multiple weight classes? Bernard Hopkins had over 20 title defenses at a 160 lbs. Will we ever see that again?
