Haglerís boxing ability was decent, but has lately been over glorified. He out boxed a lot of 'out-boxables' if you catch my drift. When did Hagler ever dissect a technician?

Hopkins has the tools - the strength, the inside ability, and he'd use the possum tactics to frustrate Hagler to a UD.
Tho short, this is one of the finer posts i have seen in my time here. No smoke, no mirrors, just plain hard hitting simple stuff.
