Marvelous Marvin Hagler was an American professional boxer and film actor who competed in boxing from 1973 to 1987. He reigned as the undisputed champion of the middleweight division from 1980 to 1987, defeating eleven fighters for the title, all but one by knockout, and making twelve successful title defenses. Hagler also holds the highest knockout percentage of all undisputed middleweight champions at 78 percent. His undisputed middleweight championship reign of six years and seven months is the longest active reign of the last century. His total time as a middleweight champion is behind only Tony Zale, whose title was not undisputed for the first year of his reign and included several years of inactivity during his service in World War II. Nicknamed "Marvelous" and annoyed that network announcers often did not refer to him as such, Hagler legally changed his name to "Marvelous Marvin Hagler" in 1982.
Thomas Hearns is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1977 to 2006. Nicknamed the "Motor City Cobra", and more famously "The Hitman", Hearns's tall, slender build and oversized arms and shoulders allowed him to move up over fifty pounds in his career and become the first boxer in history to win world titles in five weight divisions: welterweight, light middleweight, middleweight, super middleweight and light heavyweight.

A southpaw, he won gold medals in the 1948 Summer Olympics in London, the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki, and the 1956 Summer Olympics held in Melbourne, Australia. In his final Olympic competition, he became the first boxer in Olympic history to win three successive gold medals. He made a remarkable achievement in Olympic boxing sport by winning 12 of his 13 Olympic fights without losing a round, dropping only one, in his last Olympic final, to American boxer José Torres. There would not be another triple gold medalist for 20 years, when Teófilo Stevenson won three, followed by Félix Savón as the latest one of the three men to accomplish the feat.

In 1961, having an amateur record of 120-0, he turned professional and won world titles in the light-middleweight division and twice in the middleweight division.
