Simply known as The War, the super fight between middleweights Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Thomas "The Hit Man" Hearns, is a hands down classic. If you grew up in the 80's, a decade of many great fights, this is the fight of fights.
Held at one of the greatest venues for boxing in the 80's, Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, The War ended as Hearns had predicted, a third round knockout. However, he was not the victor. Instead, it was undisputed middleweight champion, Hagler, retaining his belts.
Watch the video above to see for yourself. This is a boxing classic. A great fight to commemorate boxing in the month of April. The War originally took place on April 15, 1985. Ironically, the end of tax season, as this was a very taxing fight for both boxers although it was only three rounds.
