Default Just how bad was Haglar robbed if at all against SRL?

Ive seen this fight I dont know how many times and for the life of me I just dont see Haglar being robbed of anything. I thought it was genius on Leonards part to wait till there was 30 seconds left to steal each round, and had Haglar been a little more busy and patient and fought his own fight instead of falling right into Rays trickery...It might have been a different outcome.

He was the clear victor.

Not the worst robbery ever.

For sure not the worst robbery ever!...But I still dont see clear evidence that Haglar won hands down..

I thought Leonard won 7-5 but haven't seen it in ages. Might have another look.

7-5 might be a little to close than most fans would admit.

SRL swept the first four rounds, IIRC.
It was a great fight!..So are you calling it a draw?

It's interchangeable, basically. No answer is wrong.


According to Hagler.
Pernell Whitaker also insinuated that Felix Trinidad had earned a gift in their bout together. Of course Marv would scream robbery, most fighters would.
Well said O!?....Although I do have Leonard picked.

It was just one of those kind of fights.
