Indeed. He wanted Leonard's name on his CV, and he also wanted the pay day. I suppose he thought the fight wouldn't last that long anyhow. Ray hadn't fought in such a long time. It's completely understandable Hagler wouldn't have been all that worried. I'd probably have done the same thing just to get the man in the ring.
