Hagler fought 15 rounders, he wouldn't 'slow' at all vs. Mayweather. Hagler either stops him, or wins a clear and wide decision. Look at Floyd's 2 fights at 154,m close win over DLH (part time fighter), and a close win over Cotto. Nothing Floyd has done suggests he can dance w/ Hagler.
The more I think about it the more I think I'm wrong, the size and strength of Hagler means that Floyds spoiling on the inside with elbows and holding would most likely be ineffectual against Hagler I do think that he would do well at slipping and catching Hagler on the way in but Hagler most likely walks him down and outworks him on his way to a UD I think Floyd would last though thanks to defensive skills but he'd perhaps only win 3 or 4 rounds in the process.

Beep. Beep. Beep. That's some serious backtracking I know but you make a solid point no point in arguing really I got that one badly wrong.

All good, all we can do is make our best guesses with these.

Hagler is actually smaller than most current day middleweights. Martinez comes in the ring at near 170. Hagler spent most of his career during same day weigh in rules. a 160 Hagler vs a 150 Floyd. Would be interesting.

floyd has the chance to fight and beat the one and only prime ATG in pac 3 years ago and he has all the excuse in the world not to make the fight and you guys think he would fight these certified ATGs in their primes if given a chance?

He'd beat Duran at 154.

The Fab 4 refers to John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison.

If you put Gayweather in that era, it would just be the VILLAGE PEOPLE.

If Floyd fought in that era...i am certan he does not go to 147 at all...but i do believe because of money at that time was not the amount of today...he would have foguht numerous fighters including ATG's.

I say he would max out at 140....i dont believe he would go to 147 certanly not 154 in those days.

He would go up to 147 and beat some of the guys (Fab 4)

But I think Floyd would lose as well.

He'd definitely be a top fighter.

He'd beat Duran. I'll save my opinion Mayweather/Hagler till after he fights as a middleweight. He has the skills to compete with Leonard and Hearns, but i fell their size and skill combos beat Mayweather.
I'd be intrested to also see Mayweather/Bentiez.

I think it'd be great matches all over with Floyd a good chance. Just my 2 cents.

There wouldn't be a Hagler/Floyd fight but the rest would be good fights with Floyd having good chances of winning.

Thoughts?
the fab 4 had the balls to fight each other.
floyd didnt even have the balls to fight a former flyweight champion
nice troll
