I'd be in the minority ranking Hagler above Leonard though, so it's swings and roundabouts.
On his best night, Hagler was great and I like him as a person more than just about any boxer. I feel like his place falls off a lot if it isn't a discussion of best middleweights or best chins though. Plenty of fighters who jump weightclasses have equalled or exceeded his accomplishments, they just don't have the accomplishments in one weightclass.
