People were terrified against Tyson. From 86-90 everybody thought he was invincible. This isn't "Who's the best and toughest fighter" it's who is the baddest mofo. Hagler wasn't always fearsome and people weren't as scared of him as they were with Tyson.
Theres a reason he was called baddest man on the planet.
