    Hagler fought Hearns in 1985.

    This fight, if it took place on the undercard, must have been on the same night as Hagler VS Leonard.

    Thomas Hearns beat Dennis Andries for the WBC light-heavyweight title in 1987 and added the WBC middleweight crown by beating Roldan.

    He later won a split decision of James Kinchen for the WBO Super-middleweight title.
