Ever see Hagler's late stoppages of Monroe and Colbert? Or his crushing of Seales, Watts and Minter?

Middleweights have always defended against moving up welters, so that criticism doesn't fly against anyone.

Reasons to appreciate Hagler?

Hagler became the legit number one contender in 1977. He was being throughly out boxed by the unbeaten Mike Colbert, until he landed the bomb that broke his jaw.

It took him two years to get his shot. Valdez should have been losing his belt to Marvleous in early 78.

Corro, Minter and Antuofermo should have only been challengers who lost and the number of defense would have been closer to 18 instead of 12.

You can forget the revisionist history surrounding that draw with Antuofermo. Marvin was flat out robbed. 10-5 was being generous to Vito. Then he had to wait almost another year.

Many are talking about the Hearns fight. Let's not forget that Hagler's face was ripped to shreds. Tommy opened up 60+ fights worth of scar tissue in less than 3 minutes. The ref had already called up the doctor to take a look. Marvin was minutes from being stopped himself when he landed those three monster shots.
Where do you rank Hagler on your all-time heirarchy list? Is he tier 2? And if so, which number do you have him at? (Just out of curiousity). And who is your #1? SRR?

I rate Marvin Hagler as the number 2 middleweight of all-time. I rate him in my all-time P4P at 15.

I rate fighters in one weight division only. I rate Robinson as the number one welterweight of all-time and as the number two fighter of all-time P4P.

So who do you have at #1 p4p all time?

Unjustly?
