Appreciation for Marvin Hagler is suffice.

He is, and will always be more appreciated than his equally accomplished predecessor, Carlos Monzon for media, era and stylistic reasons.

I liked hagler, he was right up there with duran as the ultimate intimidating badass of his time.

The way he went through hearns shocked me but I agreed with the verdict in the leonard fight.
Leonard was 1 of the most adaptable, smart & skillfull boxers of any era & marv pushed him to another level, that tells you everything about marv.

Great fighter.

This deserves a bump

I've always considered Hagler a great boxer, and a great representative of the sport.

The fact that he knocked the "Hitman's" head off when he needed to only serves as icing on the cake!

Yes, which is a bit unfair, because Hagler didn't defend the Title so much times and did retire after beating his heir apparent.

Hagler was without question one of the greatest middleweights ever. Arguably the greatest.

Forget about Monzon, Hopkins would have provided Hagler with a serious test.

Duran was defensively aware against Hagler, and done reasonably well on the outside. And Leonard beat Hagler, although controversially. The quickness, sharp punching, combined with movement gave Hagler trouble.

Hopkins has the perfect style to go one better and possibly beat Hagler. If Hagler fought Hopkins in the same manner he fought Duran, Hopkins would have beat him. He stands at 6' 1", and he's physically strong inside, something Duran lacked against Hagler was effectiveness at close quarters.

Hagler's the greatest of all times. Hopkins only had one outstanding performance - against Tito. otherwise, he's forgettable.

And that fight was against a blown up Welterweight, it´s sad to say that it´s his greatest performance, but it is, and that should show us how overrated he is, IMO he wouldn´t have against Hagler...

Mickey Walker, Emile Griffith, Leonard and Robinson were all blown up welterweights.

But they proved against great/ very good fighters at that weight, that they´re also great there, a thing, Trinidad never did...

Considered by who? Mugabi, Antuofermo, etc. were much better wins for Marvin, you don´t need to defend Hopkins, look at his poor title reign, he doesn´t belong in the Top 10 MW ATG...
