Iran Barkley was one of the most exciting fighters of our time.
He holds the distinction of having defeated Tommy Hearns twice; once by
decision and once by devastating knockout! Iran also fought a spirited war
against ring legend Roberto Duran. Iran retired from the ring in 1999 and
now spends his time doing personal appearances, speaking on behalf of youth
organizations and advising fighters.
