Ray won with every single disadvantage. He didn't owe Marvin much of anything. And before anybody says "The title shot!", Hagler wanted Ray as badly as vice versa, if not moreso.
Sometimes, and I know firsthand, it comes down to wishing you'd just thrown more punches. For Hagler, maybe this was a good indication to him, deep down, that he was in fact slowing down and fading.
Well said M!...I wonder what the odds were in this fight? ..But I do agree with you Ray did win with every disadvantage.
