Re: Hagler v Hopkins
There is a reason Marvin stayed at middleweight for his whole career, besides legacy. he was an incredible physical fighter at 160. I'm not so sure he would fare well against a fighter who was able to jump to 175 and outmuscle a 6'3 fighter like Tarver who walks around at 210 - 220. Hopkins has been beaten by one attribute, speed. RJJ, Taylor, Calzaghe all had very different styles but the speed advantage over Hopkins. Marvin's was a very good boxer - puncher but his best attribute was his combination of relentlessness and chin, something that doesn't do the trick against Hopkins. Close fight, but I see Hopkins edging it.
