it was Hagler with the blockbuster wins over Hearns, Sibson, Hamsho, Roldan, not Leonard

Even Bryant Gumbel said Hagler beat him better than Sugar Ray

and he did

becuz Hags is a fighter made of higher stock

Sugar is a guy who would pick a fight with the weakest, clumsiest, slowest titlest out there.

the most limited fighter he could find, and still make him melt down to the lower limit of his weight class

that's the kind of man he is

why deny it?

we all know

okay, enough of that clown. My picks for greatest image would be Hagler, Hearns (1984 version), Roy Jones (longest streak), followed by Foreman (totalling prime Frazier, Norton & just about everyone else in the division leading up to the title challenge)

In fact if u look at George's record u can see going all the way back to 1971, a long list of KO 1 & KO 2
Weakest, slowest, clumsiest titlelist out there????

Correct me if im wrong but werent Duran,Hearns and Hagler all titlelists when SRL beat them

Im outta here
