Still to this day, THE finest job of anybody convincing the crowd, which in turn I can only assume convinced the judges he was winning. With all his flash and showboating, using his hand speed to mystify everyone into thinking this was not only a close fight, but that he won....The only rounds he won without question were the first 2 Hagler was fighting orthodox in, and the 6th. The rest was Leonard pulling the wool over the judges eyes. Marvin won 7 rounds convincingly, with the last round being even, despite all the running and showboating in the final round by Ray, he barley did enough actual work to make that round even. Just a despicable outcome, in which Hagler was truly robbed by a total acting job, and I really can't blame him for walking away forever after such a total betrayal.

Still aggravates the shit out of me to this day, 7 rounds too 4 with 1 even, or 116-113 Marvelous Marvin Hagler.
I can see how you scored it like that, some rounds were very close. The showboating must have had an effect on the judge that scored it 118-110 (poor card). Personally I think Leonard did land a lot and coped reasonably well with Hagler's onslought for much of the fight. Hagler had trouble finding him and couldn't get him on the ropes enough in the first half. Rounds 3 and 4 were close and probably ended up the difference on mine and your card.
