Leonard won the first few rounds at a canter. That's what won the fight for him. Hagler stalked him when he should have charged out,and not given the rusty Leonard a chance of building up a rhythm. Had he done this,he could have turned the decision his way. The right guy got given the nod by the judges.
I made it 7-4-1 Leonard.
