FFS Watch some 90s Hopkins, or even the Trinidad version, you're comparing a past prime Hopkins. Hopkins in his prime had a higher output than Hagler.
And Hopkins went 12 years without a MW loss and 19years without a clear loss, Hagler only went 11 years without a MW loss. How many losses would Hagler have had at MW if he fought their until the age of 40 or 48?
