It's the perfect narrative really unless you're a fan of Hagler, then it's painful.
I see what you are saying Flea, I really do, and I understand why the fight was awarded to Ray. However I never agree with awarding flash and nostalgia over substance and quality. Imo, Hagler giving away the first 2 rounds is what really hurt him, as they were the deciding rounds for the judges that scored it 115-113 for Leonard. The judge that scored it 118-110 for Ray, should have been dragged outback, and let Ajax deal with as he saw fit
