Interestly enough the incredible tactician Eddie Futch once said the best way to beat Hagler was to lead.

Others often said to make him lead, but Futch went the other way.

Pretty sure Futch was in Monroe's corner when he carved Marvin up in their first fight. Only loss where Marvin was ever busted up. Of course he won the trilogy.
