Re: Hagler - Baddest Mofo of our Era
Tyson for his short peak was far badder. Experienced opponents, talented opponents, most seemed scared stiff. Many were beaten before even fronting up. Every name i seem to think of has some sort of knock. Hagler was pretty meek vs Duran and Leonard, Tyson had some ordinary efforts when bested, Gomez got a couple of hammerings. Duran quit and had some bad showings.
The guy i will go for is Jeff Fenech. He is a genuine badass, not a built up one. He had a couple of losses at the end but for 6 or 7 years he was ferocity personified in the ring. Dirty, strong, and willing to go thru anything to beat you. He fought with constant pressure of which there was no respise whatsoever. Look at opponents by the end of his bouts, they've been there some hell. He was absolutely vicious.
