As for Vito, it was one hell of an effort. The first Hagler fight was Vito's greatest effort as a professional. Had the fight been one of those old 20 rounders, Vito would have won.
I hated to see Antuofermo lose to Minter in his next fight. That spoiled the respect he won through his effort against Hagler.
You must not be a Minter appreciator. His first fight with Minter should raise the stock of both of them. Argument could be made just as easily that Vito won the first encounter.
