Well come out and telll us Hagler was more fearful of SRL's power than Hearns, twisted humour is always welcome in this corner. Better still, go and read Hagler's memoirs of the fight and his early tactics. Read how he didn't come out chasing SRL because he figured that was what Leonard expected.
Concerning Duran, Leonard was mastefully manipulated into fighting the fight Duran was best at. Calling Leonard's wife a whore and various other things led Leonard right into the Duran web. Kudo's to Duran.
