Default Re: Herol Graham - How Avoided?

Or because he likely couldn't have cared less about him one way or the other.He would have been no more than another mandatory foe to Hagler.

Graham would have been a worthy enough challenger around 86 or 87 and would have certainly performed better than Mugabi did, but Hagler was just looking for the payday by then.

Leonard, curry or the rematch with Hearns were his most likely options.In retrospect he ****ed up quite hilariously with his choice.

Well Hagler was actually going to fight Hearns before Leonard came back, Graham wasn't even on the radar.

Frank Tate or Olajide would have ended up getting a shot before Graham anyway imo.

They were based in America and had higher profiles.

One step farther and if he doesn't fight Hearns or Leonard he doesn't fight at all
