Default Who do you have rated higher P4P

Hagler or Hearns. Hagler beat Heanrs at his natural weight but

he also beat Duran who everyone has higher then Hagler P4P

Hearns knocked out Geraldo in 1 who went the distance with Hagler

Hearns Knocked out Duran in 2 rounds who also went the distance with

Hagler. I though Hearns looked more impressive in his two fights

with Leonard then Hagler did. Take away common opponents and

Hearns 3 biggest wins over Cuevas,Hill,and Wilfredo in my opinion

are better then Hagler 3 biggest wins

I rate Hagler higher based on his longevity at the top.

I think Hearns is one of the toughest guys to rate.

His combination of speed, grace and power is close to unique in boxing history, IMO.

But, he had a couple of glaring weaknesses, unusual for someone who is rated so highly by most of us...

I personally think he was a fighting genius, and its a good job he didn't have a granite chin as then we would have no P4P debates on ESB...

Hearns is my favourite boxer. I am curious why you have the wins over Wildredo Benitez and Virgil Hill over the knockout of Roberto Duran

Hearns, wherever he fought, was always second best. Hagler was the man to avoid for some time, and then he became king.
