But outfight him and being a bigger nager or hrting him?/ Thats just delusional on your part. Nobdoy hurts Hagler or beats him in a war of attrition. And he didn`t look for `outs` in his fight either ...
Okay smart guy, I'll concede the entire argument if you can point out a single use of the word 'hurt' in my original post.
My point is that Hopkins hit hard enough to get Hagler's respect, just like Ray Leonard managed to get it.
