I think he did the work, just people's attention is naturally more attracted than say the flashy right hand-left hook Leonard threw (and didn't really land or only grazed Hagler) instead of the good body punches Marvin landed.
I just don't think enough Leonard's punches landed effectively enough to count them into the scoring in his favor.
