Default Re: Hagler - Baddest Mofo of our Era

Tony was the real deal. You all just don't know it. Tony was the new Harry Greb-just as nasty but with power in both hands. IMO, better than Mike Tyson could ever be but his career was cut short.

What Mantequilla said was right but I'm talking about what he could do inside the ring with his fists. And together with Macho Camacho, was the prospect of 1982-the sure thing, the right stuff, and future champion. a lock to become future champ and the only way it could be prevented was to keep him from fighting.

I favor Tony because he's younger, and naturally bigger and stronger and can punch holes thru most people. Benitez and Duran were dinosaurs. But Tommy with his youth and the fact that hadn't even reached his prime, would be expected to compete in a few years, maybe after Hagler finished with him.
