Duran and Hearns blatantly ducked him. Can't really blame Hagler, though, since Mike had done nothing at MW and wasn't nearly as strong a draw as Duran, Leonard and Hearns.
If he was fighting in front of home crowds as some fighters, his only loss would have been to Kalambay before Toney III imo. That's a clue to how good his record was in reality.
Not to be a smart Alec but Roy Jones???
