Leonard vs Hearns II "The War"

The judges could not split the 2 fighters. The contest resulted in a draw. Leonard was down in rounds 3 & 11. The result was controversial. Most felt that Hearns deserved the decision. Even Leonard has said he feels Hearns deserved the verdict. Negotiations for a 3rd fight fell apart because the two fighters could not agree on a weight limit. Leonard wanted the same weight limit as the second fight, but Hearns said he could no longer make that weight.
