Hagler truly and utterly ****ed himself in the first couple of rounds by not doing enough work and turning orthodox. If he'd just fought his ass off from the start, it was very much a winnable fight.
I agree. I can see it 115-113 either way or a draw...but on recent viewings I find I give Ray the edge.

It hurts me to do it but just as I give lofty and IMO undeserved rankings I also have to admit that Ray Leonard defeated Marvin Hagler. Even if I don't particularly like the tactics he implemented. Under the rules of boxing, he won. Sorta'.
