Re: Of the 80's Fab four, Duran, Hearns. Hagler and Leonard..Which is your favorite!?
Holmes and Hagler came from the same cloth. Two blue-collared fighters who had no Olympic gold medal and fought for peanuts on undercards early in their careers. Both champions for 7 years. And when they were defeated, they never accepted it.
In my opinion, Hagler and Holmes, were clearly beaten when they lost their titles. Close but clear.
