Exactly

A closing snippet from a column I penned in May 2003 for the Arizona Daily Sun.

While doing a little spring cleaning the other day, I came across an issue of The Sporting News from 1995. Buried in small type on one of the inside pages was this gem of a quote from boxing legend Thomas “Hitman” Hearns:

“It’s just one step. The next step: I need to go get a title that people really know.”

That’s what he uttered after kayoing Lenny LaPaglia (who?) to win the World Boxing Union cruiserweight title. Something tells me that “title fight” doesn’t rank as one of Hearns’ all-time memories in the ring.
