My answer to your question is that a fight can be close yet still be unquestionably in favor of one contestant.

As I recall, most of the rounds won by Hagler were very clear cut in terms of Hagler's dominance. I don't think there should be any question that Hagler won more rounds than Vito did. In terms of the final scorecard, that should have translated into Hagler having the fight in his pocket after fifteen rounds. This is true even in spite of Antuofermo taking control of the bout in the later rounds.

.........Waitwaitwait.......you didn't actually score it, but you're sure Hagler took it? How's THAT work?
