Default Re: Hagler v Leonard Thoughts?

and that's fair. criteria is subjective and individual. i scored many of the rounds for leonard simply because i didn't see hagler do enough...i'll take ineffective but landed punches over plodding any day. however, hagler did some great work in the second half and a case can be made that he swept the final 6.

i felt he dug himself too deep and i scored the first 4 for leonard, meaning hagler had to win almost every round from that point on. if you felt he did, you have an argument
