Default Dwight Muhammad Qawi vs Marvin Hagler

I know....I know...
It's not exactly a fair fight. But back in the early '80's, I really wanted this fight to happen. Marvin Hagler made the right decision to stay at middle..But the styles and personalities of these fighters really captured my imagination....Suppose it would have happened?
Humor me.... I think it would have been possibly a great fight...
The Hagler from the Sibson fight (Hagler looked so sharp and accurate with his punches) against Qawi from the second Sadd fight (Qawi was so intense it was scary). Outside chance?... Could the faster jabbing southpaw outpoint the shorter Qawi?
Who and why?

Qawi's prolly as fast, hits harder i'd say, takes as good a shot, easily as good stamina wise, better inside, better defensively, is stronger, works the body better etc etc. Also highly motivated and very intense at his peak. It's Qawi's fight for sure.

Qawi would be a difficult night for any 175 in history.

I think Qawi beats Hagler by UD. I know that Dwight wanted to fight Hagler, but couldnt make it down to middleweight, and Marvin didn't want to go up to light heavyweight.

Qawi would stop Hagler late. Like with Spinks, wise choise for Hagler not to move up.

I like Hagler alot....but ther are reasons he never tried to go above MW...IMO a wise decision. Qawi is a beast and naturally the bigger man...Hagler may have an iron chin at middle but I don't see him lastin 10 in this one

Agreed. In fact, I'd take Qawi against Foster . Qawi was very strong light heavy!

I totally agree with your statement about Qawi's strength...but I don't thinkl Hagler would even attempt to match strength with the light heavy....I think that he would fight Qawi similar to his fight with Briscoe, jabbing and moving....Marvin had very good hand speed and footwork. I really do not see a stoppage at all, Qawi would have to work very hard at cutting off the ring, and forcing the exchanges. With Hagler strictly boxing however ....I think it's close

A prime Braxton/Qawi was too strong for even Saad Muhammad.

A middleweight Hagler couldn't keep Qwai off of him....and JoeCal
of this era would be bouncing BB's off Dwight who would just laugh at
him thru his mouthpiece.

Big Hagler fan here but Dwight would be too much for him. I don't agree with JT regarding Qawi being a better in fighter than Marvin, I think it's a pretty even there. But Dwight would just be too strong and relentless nonetheless.

Hagler knew he was a natural Middleweight, and knew better than try to move up. Also he was a culmulative puncher with good power at middleweight, but not great power, which wouldn't serve him well againt LH's. Meaning he couldn't keep Dwight off him, also don't think he would be able to pull a leonard and just peck and move and pile up points.

Decision Qawi, Hagler's grill is too hard for him to be stopped

Well, at 175 Qawi IMO is definitely the better infighter. On a P4P basis it would tighten, but in this fight at 175 i really don't think Marvin can battle it out inside with Qawi. I do think Qawi is superb inside practicioner, huge arms and shoulders used well defensively in close.

I really don't understand the people who say Hagler would be stopped by Qawi or Michael Spinks. The same people would pick Eddie Gregory to stop him and probably Marvin Johnson as well. It's ridiculous. 'Just' because of fifteen pounds in weight... As I've said many a time before, a fighter doesn't go from being practically invincible to fairly stoppable just because he moves up a bit. Especially a fighter as skilled and experienced as Hagler.
