Going into that fight I knew Hagler had only two ways to get his hands raised vs Leonard. Score a Knockout or completely dominate rounds to bank them.
Neither of those two happened and so the fight went to the media darling.
Boxing business and politics as usual.

No sir, Ray Leonard delivered, did his thing while Hagler couldn't.... It's why two judges gave him the nod.
