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.
