“The War”

Marvin Hagler vs Thomas Hearns is “The War”. A thrilling fight for the ages all fight fans can enjoy. Marvelous Marvin Hagler defends his middleweight titles against the dangerous contender Thomas “The Hit Man” Hearns.

Marvin Hagler is one of the most dominant and powerful middleweight champions in boxing. He successfully defended his belt 12 times and holds the record for most knockouts in the middleweight division.

Thomas Hearns was the current super welterweight and light middleweight champion. Going into this fight, Hearns is coming off his second round knockout of legendary Roberto Duran. Hearns is the first boxer to accomplish this.

In what is referred to as the best three rounds in boxing (and perhaps the best first round) Hagler and Hearns display true heart and iron chin. The fight later won “Fight of the Year” from The Ring Magazine.

Originally promoted as “The Fight” but has become known as “The War”. A thrilling fight for the ages and a classic for boxing history. This fight was one of the first fights that turned me on to combat sports.

This may not be an MMA fight, but this is an incredible battle between two boxers who have made a name for themselves through tough fights in the boxing ring. We at Cage Inspiration always appreciate and respect fighters that have skill, heart, power, and seek to “leave it all in the cage”. This fight deserves to be in the Best of the Best fights archives.
