DETROIT (AP) - Someone should have cried "fowl."
Former boxing champ Thomas "Hitman" Hearns matched wits
Tuesday with a chicken named Ginger in a battle of tic-tac-toe.
The Greektown Casino in Detroit says the seven-time world boxing
champion won one round, but another ended in a tie.
The event was part of a promotional stunt for the hotel.
Hearns held WBA, WBC, WBU and IBO titles ranging from the
welterweight to cruiserweight divisions from 1980 to 1999.
