    He could have done the same and fought at LHW in his day and age. Why did he not do it?

    Probably because middleweight was the glamour division

    There are going to be some responses in here that would cause me to perpetrate some major violence if this weren't the internet.

    Hagler was a true 160 champion, unlike canelo ( who bends the rules to his advantage )

    His rehydrating didn't work against Floyd.

    160 to 175 is an incredible leap to make...

    Are you kidding me? Canelo is one of the Greatest Mexican Fighters of All Time so how can the fight be a complete miss-match?

    Who is the biggest fighter Hagler faced in the ring at the championship level?

    its a stylistical miss-match, like Hearns-Mayweather. Under Hagler's pressure Canelo would gas in 7 rounds.

    Sugar Ray walked around at 155, probably same as Teofimo today
