The Mugabi that fought Hagler would land massive shots on that static head and eventually obliterate him.He'd walk though everything Oscar throws and the beast knew how to set traps, which would work well against a physically unimpressive blown up junior Welter sized fighter that can't out-range or punch him out.
Post Hagler was a ruined faded fighter-who had never had much dedication anyway- so yeah, oscar could do a Mosley II against him and box to a dull safety first decision win.
Agree with a lot your points. Good post.
