He lost to Hagler, even though Hagler was used up by that point. Hagler was robbed. In between, he had trouble with fighters he shouldn't have. Then there's Norris. So when you look at the actual circumstances, the hard facts tell us something quite different from what you want to believe.
Those are hard facts, but facts you don't like. You then give your OPINION on the outcome of those fights.

What I mean by facts, he TKO'd Benitez and Hearns late, won a rematch against Duran, and was awarded a close decision against Hagler. Those are FACTS.
