Ray pretty much dictated the way the fight would be carried out...number of rounds, size of the ring, type of gloves etc..Marvins camp should've have seen the set up ahead of time and dictated thier own terms but I think that they were so confident of a desicive Hagler victory that they didn't care. Bg mistake on thier part. Still I thought Hagler should've kept the title on a draw.
If Haglars camp saw this coming they should have trained to knock Leonard out....Should have been more aggressive.
