.............Perhaps we should chalk this up to different definitions of "bad mofo." I define it as a fighter with equal parts toughness in physical, emotional, and mental arenas. You seem to define it as some snarling guy who scroes a bunch of knockouts.
I'll just ask this; can you picture Hagler caving and biting the ear off an opponent? That was a huge sign of weakness.
