Oh misunderstood.... But i still disagree, stoppage possibly, A straight ko, nope

I dont think anyone does, but probably the best chance might be a a guy like Jones... Dont think hed commit himself long enough to put hagler down, but theres a small chance he could bust him up and stop him late.. Jones was a huge puncher at MW,his style would have been all wrong for even a prime Hagler.

Of course it is possible for any man to be KO'd, but if a guy like Hagler can go through a full career without succombing to a KO, then i think its unfair to question his punch resistance against other maybe more formidable fighters. Haglers got a great set of whiskers in any era

There are a few middleweights in history who COULD KO Hagler, in theory, either with single perfect punch or through an accumulation effect.

But is there anyone I would absolutely EXPECT to stop Hagler inside 15 rounds ?
No.

Even the mythic power of Fitzsimmons and Langford would only gain them a 50% chance at best to stop Hagler.

I really don't see Hagler getting Ko'd or stopped in the 15 round distance. People are saying that a swarmer type fighter could possibly break him down later on but, Hagler was always in top shape and never seemed to tire late on in any fight that i recall. Plus he was in some real tough fights that would likely see a fighter broke down late on but it just didn't seem to happen to Marvin in those fights.

as any man can be knocked out,

then it's only fair to think that so too could Marvin Hagler, especially if he fought at a time when 100 -150 fights and beyond was the norm, that changes things for any fighter - it may well have eventually happened, but most likely towards the latter stages of such a career!!!

Highly unlikely,all things considered.

Outside of cuts? NO!! Hagler is a beast at 160.... Top-5 ATG best chinned fighter at any weight......

Any mortal can indeed get knocked out, but Hagler has my vote as the least likely among all middleweights -and perhaps mortals- to get knocked out.
Agree with this man. I never would bet my house on anything but if i was pushed i'd bet the house on nobody ko'ing marvin at middle. Agree with the hearns right hand, hes already took probably the meanest p4p punch ever

The possibility can't be discounted.

Bennie Briscoe would have remained clad in those adamant, Halger-esque sentiments, but for one Rodrigo Valdez he was blasted out for the only time in his blood-n-guts career.

Hearn's can't be discounted as a premier puncher - but his punching credentials can be discounted against men with proven records against bigger, durable men. The inevitable climb in weight saw Tommy's power take a measured plunge into the realms of ineffectuality.

Bob Fitzsimmons and Sam Langford were on another level in terms of proportional power. Postulating Hagler to survive them is a fair, but in no sense safe prediction.

Taking note of how Hagler fought, it's difficult to see him suffer Langford for too long.
