Happy birthday to the Hit Man
A very happy birthday to the original and best Hit Man, Tommy Hearns.
A freak of nature, supremely skilled and the only boxer to outbox greats like Ray Leonard, Wilfred Benitez and also the difficult Virgil Hill.
But best known for that truly devastating straight right, delivered like a rifle with speed and accuracy.
A warriors mentality, frightened of nobody, would go toe to toe with anyone and who never avoided anybody in his career. A man who genuinely wanted to hurt whoever was in the ring with him, even in sparring!
A nightmare to face, he would have given serious problems to any welterweight who ever fought.
Happy birthday, buddy.
