Sugar Ray Leonard & Tommy "Hitman" Hearns Signed 8x10 Photo (Beckett COA)
Photo measures 8" x 10" in size and has been hand-signed in black felt-tip pen by Sugar Ray Leonard and Tommy Hearns.
Nicknamed "The Hitman", Hearns' tall and slender build allowed him to move up over fifty pounds in his career and become the first boxer in history to win world titles in four weight divisions: welterweight, light middleweight, middleweight, and light heavyweight. By later winning a super middleweight title, he also became the first to win world titles in five weight divisions.
Hearns was named Fighter of the Year by The Ring magazine in 1980 and 1984; the latter following his one-punch knockout of Roberto Durán. Hearns was known as a devastating puncher throughout his career, even at cruiserweight, despite having climbed up five weight classes.
Sugar Ray Leonard is often regarded as one of the greatest boxers of all time, he won world titles in five weight divisions; the lineal championship in three weight divisions; as well as the undisputed welterweight title. The Ring magazine named him Fighter of the Year in 1979 and 1981, while the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) named him Fighter of the Year in 1976, 1979, and 1981.
