I'll take Hagler's harder, overall more effective punches over Leonard's flash that wasn't landing very clean.
i did to but he didn't do it often enough. I usually see the argument for hagler being that his punches were more effective, which is true.
however, he simply didn't do that effective work often enough. when he threw the punches and got the work done, he won the rounds. when he didn't, leonard won. i personally think leonard took more rounds, even if it was by shoe shining
