Yes.

No way Hagler boxes as tentatively as he did early in their fight again.I'd look for Hagler to apply constant pressure and to prevent Leonard stealing rounds through potshots and flurries (even if they were ineffectual) and to use his edge in strength and power to force Leonard to fight more off the ropes early in the fight.This is if Hagler still had the physical tools to fight with an increased workrate and intensity,which I think he did.

Hagler UD 12 if they'd fought an immediate rematch imo.
