Wouldn't really class that bout as a war. I wouldn't say that Hagler was at his peak for that fight either. That came about three years later.

I WOULD say that you (and Hank ) are bordering on criminal insanity if you think Vito won the fight. But Gawd bless ya. Say want you want about Hagler. He was a robot....he was overcautious....he relied too much on his cornermen for stategy....but one thing he wasn't was a loser against Vito. PLEASE let's keep the discussion sensible.

By the way, I also think the answer is yes with my Lamotta example as stated.

Yes, Hagler put on a good display but the many of the rounds in the 2nd half of the fight were toe-to-toe, war if you will, and Vito got the better of it. Also, when I did I say Vito won the fight you gobshite? If you're gonna waste a whole paragraph accusing me of something I didn't write or just making things up to suit yourself then **** off. Or learn to read.

Fair enough, it appeared you were insinuating that you thought Hagler lost that fight. I was wrong on that count.

Anyway, try and remain calm. It's an entertaining debate. No need to to lose your poise. I'd prefer not to **** myself..

I thought Hagler lost the fight. Hagler won many/most of early rounds, but Vito took over last half of fight.
