Overview

Thomas Hearns was the most exciting boxer of modern times Winner of eight world titles at six different weights, he competed in four decades and was twice Ring magazine's Fighter of the Year. He is recognised as one of the greatest punchers of all time, and took part in some of the most memorable contests ever. His rivalry with Sugar Ray Leonard, his destruction of Roberto Duran and his epic war with Marvin Hagler will go down in sporting folklore, and he is known worldwide by his instantly memorable nickname: the Hit Man.

In this first-length biography, renowned boxing coach Brain Hughes and sports psychologist Damian Hughes tell the extraordinary story of how a poor boy from a single-parent family in the urban wastelands of Detroit became a superstar. From his life-changing meeting with trainer Emanuel Steward at the Kronk gym, through his blistering early career to his prodigious later feats. Hit Man is the definitive story of one of the biggest names in modern sports.
