He'd himself talked about usingg 154 as a stepping stone before challenging Hagler. But he never made it at 154. Maybe we under-rate his prime, which seemed to end in about December 1985 when he defended against some guy (Eduardo someone?) and he was being hit with punches that wouldn't have landed previously

p.s by all accounts he's a decent guy
Well said my man..There was no need for the 154 steppin stone, he shoulda stayed at WW
