Re: Who won? Leonard or Hagler?
This fight is often widly distorted by fans of both guys. neither guy was ithier prime, although both were still top notch. The majority going into the fight though that Hagler would destroy him....myself included.
SRL was more active, and his mobility caused Hagler a number of problems. Hagler is noticably slower (although SRL does deerve some credit for exploiting that)...especially his hook which looks almost cumbersome. Hagler does come on...but is it enough to swing it back his way. Either way you will have 50% of boxing fans agree with you/
For me I had Hagler by a point but it is no robbery whichever way you score it....unless you score it wide one way or the other. To me Hagler won, but he allowed SRL to control the tempo and wasn active enough untill to late...so he has no one to blame but himself.
