Tommy Hearns & Roberto Duran Signed 11x14 Photo (Beckett COA)
Photo measures 11" x 14" in size and has been hand-signed in black felt-tip pen by Tommy Hearns and Roberto Duran.
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.
Roberto Duran is a four-weight world champion, having held titles at lightweight (1972–1979), welterweight (1980), light middleweight (1983–1984), and middleweight (1989), as well as reigns as the undisputed and lineal lightweight champion (1978–1979), and the lineal welterweight champion (1980). In 2002, Duran was voted by The Ring magazine as the fifth greatest fighter of the last 80 years.
