Default Re: Mavin Hagler Eats Bernard Hopkins

Regardless of who was better, I think we can say that Hopkins was a poor imitation of Hagler on the image side of things. Hagler had a lot more dignity:

Even mid-action, there is a difference. You'll never catch Hagler in these sort of situations:

Look at the difference in their expressions:

I've always thought Hopkins was trying too hard to get people to think he was tough. He was tough, but he wanted everyone to know it, unlike Hagler, who was a much more effortless hardnut:

Not that this matters a whole lot, but it's the reason I prefer Hagler.
