Even though Leonard dominated, hurting Hearns and battering him, all three judges gave both rounds to Leonard by a 10—9 margin. Many felt that the ten-point must scoring system was not properly used and those rounds should have been scored 10—8.
Veteran ringside commentator Don Dunphy said "They're stopping the fight. I don't believe it. Hearns was ahead on points.
Tommy did not have enough energy to make it through the fight. The fight was named " Fight of the Year " by The Ring.

The fight was cancelled, and Leonard had surgery to repair the retina on May 9, On November 9, , Leonard invited Marvin Hagler and other boxing dignitaries to a charity event in Baltimore, Maryland to hear him announce whether he would continue his career.
Standing in a boxing ring with Howard Cosell , the master of ceremonies, Leonard announced his retirement, saying a bout with Hagler would unfortunately never happen.
Leonard maintained his eye was fully healed, but that he just didn't want to box anymore. Missing the limelight and the competition, Leonard announced in December that he was returning to the ring.
This decision was met with a torrent of criticism from fans and the media, who felt Leonard was taking unnecessary risks with his surgically repaired eye.
A bout with Philadelphia's Kevin Howard, who was 20—4—1, was scheduled for February 25, The fight was postponed when Leonard had minor surgery on his right eye to fix a loose retina.
This latest eye problem further fueled the flames of those who opposed Leonard's comeback. Before the fight with Howard, Dave Jacobs rejoined Leonard's team in a limited role.

Leonard came back to stop Howard in the ninth round, but the stoppage was disputed, with some feeling that the referee stopped the fight prematurely.

Of all people, John 'The Beast' Mugabi. He called Mike Trainer and said, "I can beat Hagler". On May 1, , Leonard announced on a Washington, D.
The announcement generated a lot of controversy because of Leonard's inactivity and eye injuries, yet it also excited many sports fans who had hoped to see them fight years earlier.
Hagler took a few months to decide, then agreed to the match. Hagler was a heavy favorite. The odds started at 4—1, then settled at 3—1.
The original fight plan for Leonard was to go toe-to-toe with Hagler and try to cut him, but the plan changed about five days before the fight.
Leonard got hit by sparring partner Quincy Taylor and was badly buckled. After that, Leonard decided to box Hagler.
Many were surprised that Hagler, a natural southpaw, opened the fight boxing out of an orthodox stance.
After the quick and slick Leonard won the first two rounds on all three scorecards, Hagler started the third round as a southpaw. Hagler did better, but Leonard's superior speed and boxing skill still allowed him to control the fight.
Hagler looked stiff and mechanical and missed the speedy Leonard time and again prompting CBS ringside commentator Gil Clancy to remark " Leonard isn't doing anything to make him miss, he's just missing!
By the fifth, Leonard, who was moving a lot, began to tire and Hagler started to get closer. Hagler buckled Leonard's knees with a right uppercut near the end of the round, which finished with Leonard on the ropes.
Hagler continued to score somewhat effectively in round six. Leonard, having slowed down, was obliged to fight more and move less.
However, he was able to outpunch Hagler along the ropes and got the better of several bristling exchanges. Hagler never seized total control of the fight as he had against Thomas Hearns two years earlier, when he brutalized Hearns and scored a third-round knockout.
Hagler's punches lacked snap and, although he was scoring solidly to the body, he looked nothing like the powerful fighter who had dominated the middleweight division for the previous five years.
Leonard's observation that the Hagler who beat John Mugabi was older and slower proved to be spot on. In rounds seven and eight, Hagler's southpaw jab was landing solidly and Leonard's counter flurries were less frequent.
Round nine was the most exciting round of the fight. Hagler hurt Leonard with a left cross and pinned him in a corner. Leonard looked to be in trouble, but he furiously fought his way out of the corner.
The action see-sawed back and forth for the rest of the round, with each man having his moments. However, Hagler's moments were more spectacular and one of Hagler's cornermen: Roger Perron in an interview that took place on an episode of HBO 's Legendary Nights episode segments in later stated that: "the ninth round was probably Marvin Hagler 's, best round".
Round ten was tame by comparison, as the pace slowed after the furious action of the previous round but with Hagler having more spectacular moments.
Despite Leonard's obvious fatigue, he boxed well in the eleventh. Every time Hagler scored, Leonard came back with something flashier and more eye-catching, if not as effective.
But at that point in the fight, Hagler appeared to be slightly more ring-general and clearly more aggressive. Between rounds eleven and twelve, Leonard's trainer: Angelo Dundee , implored Sugar Ray to get up off his stool yelling "We got three minutes Hagler's corner was much more reserved prompting Clancy to comment: "They're talking to him like it's an IBM meeting or something He hit Leonard with a big left hand and backed him into a corner.
Leonard responded with a furious flurry, landing few punches but whipping the upset-hoping crowd into a frenzy. Hagler backed off, and Leonard danced away with Hagler in pursuit.
The fight ended with Hagler and Leonard exchanging along the ropes. At the final bell, even uniformed ringside security rushed into the ring applauding and lauding Leonard's effort.
Leonard threw punches and landed , while Hagler threw and landed Leonard was awarded a controversial split-decision. Many felt that Hagler deserved the decision because he was the aggressor and landed the harder punches.
Scottish boxing journalist Hugh McIlvanney wrote that Leonard's plan was to "steal rounds with a few flashy and carefully timed flurries Many others felt that Leonard deservedly got the decision, arguing that Leonard landed more punches and showed better defense and ring generalship.
He didn't just outpoint Hagler, he exposed him. He made him look like a guy chasing a bus. In snowshoes Leonard repeatedly beat Hagler to the punch.
When he did, he hit harder. He hit more often He made Hagler into what he perceived him to be throughout his career—a brawler, a swarmer, a man who could club you to death only if you stood there and let him.
If you moved, he was lost. The scorecards from the ringside press and broadcast media attest to the polarizing views and opinions of the fight:.
Despite requests from the Hagler camp, Leonard was uninterested in a rematch and retired on May 27, Many were critical of the fact that Lalonde's light heavyweight title was on the line when the weight limit of the fight with Leonard was at pounds, and critical of Leonard for stipulating that his opponent—a natural pounder—should weigh less than his usual fighting weight, which could possibly weaken him.
This would be Leonard's first professional fight without Angelo Dundee. Dundee was unhappy with that amount. He requested a contract for the Lalonde fight and Leonard refused.
My word is my bond", Leonard said. Lalonde's size and awkwardness troubled Leonard. In the fourth round, a right hand to the top of Leonard's head dropped him for just the second time in his career.
Early in the ninth, Lalonde hurt Leonard with a right to the chin. Leonard fired back and hurt Lalonde with a right.
He drove him to the ropes and unleashed a furious assault. Lalonde tried to tie up Leonard, but got dropped with a powerful left hook.
He rose but was soon down again, and the fight was stopped. Judge Stuart Kirshenbaum had Lalonde ahead 76— After the fight, Leonard vacated the light heavyweight title, but kept the super middleweight title.
Also, Leonard and Janks Morton split because of personal differences. Morton was replaced as co-trainer by Pepe Correa, who had worked with Leonard for most of the previous fifteen years.
It was promoted as "The War. Hearns dropped Leonard with a right cross in the third round, but Leonard came back and battered Hearns around the ring in the fifth.
Early in the seventh round, Hearns hurt Leonard but punched himself out going for the knockout. With Hearns fatigued, Leonard came back and had a strong finish to the round.
Rounds nine and ten were good rounds for Leonard, but he ran into trouble in the eleventh round. Three booming rights from Hearns sent Leonard down for the second time in the fight.
Knowing he needed a big finish, Leonard fought furiously and had a big final round. The judges scored the fight a draw and Leonard retained the title.
Shirley was the only judge to give Leonard a 10—8 margin in the twelfth. If he had scored it 10—9, as his two colleagues did, Hearns would have won by a split decision.
Eventually, Leonard admitted that Hearns deserved the decision [ citation needed ]. Dave Jacobs was one of the people let go, leaving Correa as the sole trainer.
Correa was instructed not to spare the whip. The fight took place at the new Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. The scores were —, —, and — In a fight that many considered to be very boring, both fighters were booed often by the fans and many left the arena before the decision was announced.
Pat Putnam of Sports Illustrated wrote, "Leonard gave them artistic perfection when they wanted heated battle, and they booed lustily.
Most fight fans would not spend a dime to watch Van Gogh paint Sunflowers , but they would fill Yankee Stadium to see him cut off his ear.
His lower lip was cut from a headbutt in the fourth round, his left eye was cut in the eleventh round, and his right eye was cut in the twelfth round.
The cuts required a total of 60 stitches. Leonard entered the bout as a favorite but Norris dominated the fight, giving Leonard a heavy beating.
He knocked Leonard down with a left hook in the second round, and in the seventh, he dropped Leonard again with a short right. Leonard had no answer for the skillful, younger, faster man.
