    Bob Foster of the Quarry fight vs Marvin Hagler of the Sibson fight? Who wins?

    Furthermore, do any MWs go the distance with Foster?

    Foster KOs Hagler clean whilst Marv is fighting as an orthodox with a wicked left hook.

    As he did to Tiger, and would do to Greb, LaMotta, Giardello, Robinson, GGG and any other top chin at 160lbs.

    The only middleweight is likely to go the distance imo is Toney.

    Hard to predict without seeing Hagler at 175

    I love Hagler but I see no case to be made for him? Perhaps to last the distance but I would expect Bob to stop him as well

    Hagler absorbed tremendous power shots from elite punchers Hearns, Mugabi, and Briscoe, didn't bat an eye. The uppercut he absorbed from Mugabi probably ko's most Middleweights in history(I still see it in my mind, it was the point I knew Mugabi wouldn't win, I think it also made Mugabi realize he wasn't going to win either.) Bob Foster annialated **** Tiger, Another fighter known for his ability to take a punch KO'ed cold by one clean shot from Foster, ref probably could've counted an entire 60 seconds before Tiger was able to get to his feet. If any fighter in history could actually Ko Hagler clean from Lt Heavy thru middle it would be Foster.
    If Foster could actually hurt Hagler , Foster wins by KO. But if Haglers chin is able to survive, or avoid the bombs from Foster, Hagler wins, easily.

    A bridge too far for Hagler. Foster by KO. I wouldn't pick any MW or SMW to KO Hagler, but at some point he'd run into someone who'd KO him, and Foster would be that man.

    All those guys you mentioned were much smaller than Foster and 15 lbs is a big jump up. Foster had lethal 175 lb. power.

    Tiget had an iron chin at 160 lbs, then...

    I don't think Hagler would go out as easily as Tiger, but Bob's natural bigger size and height and reach advantages will keep Hagler on the outside until he hurts Hagler at some point

    This is a much different proposition than Hearns. Imagine Hearns as a natural 175 pounder.

    I remember when Mike Spinks tried to lure Hagler into a fight by coming in around 171 pounds in a fight. Hagler wasn't inclined to have any of it and for good reason. Foster is another good reason, Marvin carrying the extra weight would be a sitting duck .

    Foster would be landing that hook and jab with impunity, hagler was a tough dude but hes outgunned here and likely t.k.o.d mid to late rounds

    I dont understand why Hagler gets thrown into these 175 lb fantasy fights the man was a natural 5'9 157 58 middleweight his entire career. It's not like he was one of these guys that changed weight. He didnt gain too much weight in between fights and still looks great now. 175 is just too big a stretch. Why doesnt anybody ever put him in at 168? Even then I bet he would weight in about 162 tops.
