I wouldn't say Hagler was having an off night or looking soft, he looked just as "bad" in the Leonard fight. He was begining the stage of life where he physically was going down hill quicker and quicker and his handspeed was going to be worse and worse with each fight and he'd never be as sharp as he was in the early 1980s.
