(Excerpt from Marvin Hagler Career Piece)

Iconic Undisputed Middleweight Champion 👑🇺🇸Marvelous Marvin Hagler (60-2-2, 50KO👊) had his eyes set on the defense record established by 🇦🇷Carlos Monzon (14), and Marvin was looking to make the 11th successful defense of his RING/WBA/WBC/IBF world titles…but to get there, he would have to run through another fellow legend in order to keep the ball rolling on his standing as king of the division.

There had been long tensions brewing between two of the most dominant pugilists in the sport of boxing in the 1980’s, and the pot began to boil as a blockbuster super-fight was agreed upon for a date on 🗓️April 15th, 1985 between Hagler, and ever-dangerous reigning RING/WBC Super-Welterweight World Champion 👑🇺🇸Thomas “The Hitman” Hearns (40-1-0, 34KO👊). They had something agreed upon 3 years prior, but had to call the fight off due to a hand injury that Tommy suffered, so they went their own ways.

“The Fight”, the Event, and the Full Backstory – Frazier and Ali Meet Center-Ring to Make History 🥊🥊📽️

Don’s Picture Collection 📚🗃️

Are we looking at the single greatest sporting event of all time here❓ perhaps so….after all, it showcased two legendary Heavyweights, and a rivaling 📻backstory, during an era where expression within the black community became a paramount staple, and both men went about conveying their thoughts and themselves in contrasting ways.

The great 👑🥇🇺🇸Muhammad Ali (31-0-0, 26KO👊) was on a mission after making his return back to the sport, after his boxing license was taken away due to his reasoning as to why he refused to partake in the Vietnam War.  Subsequently, as a result of his decision, he was stripped of his RING, WBA and WBC Titles, and was no longer deemed as the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion – 📍A moniker that he had held onto for three years, during a nine title defense stint, one that he breezed through as a virtually untouched commodity as he had no equal between the four ring posts.

As Ali’s departure from boxing became a reality, the titles became vacant, made available for the next King to stand up.  👑🥇🇺🇸“Smokin” Joe Frazier (26-0-0, 23KO👊), after winning a Gold-Medal at the 1964 ◯‍◯‍◯‍◯‍◯🇯🇵Tokyo Olympics – quickly blazed a trail through the competition at the pro ranks, and put himself into position for a shot at the Undisputed Heavyweight Title.  During the post-Ali era, it was 🇺🇸Jimmy Ellis who would first win that vacant WBA belt after he defeated 🇦🇷Oscar Bonavena, and it was Ellis that Frazier would have to get through in order to fully take over the helm, to hold the mantle.
