    Wow thats a good one both guys were tough as nails id have to give Marvin a slight edge because he could box really well when he wanted to

    I really like Gene Fullmer. He is an underrated great. But Hagler was a demon. I can't pick against the Marvelous One!

    I used to think Fullmer was just a straight-ahead brawler, too. He wasn't. He was surprisingly quick and could box some too, so this isn't Hamsho revisited for Hagler, not by a mile.

    I also think his awkwardness plays hell with Hagler for most of the way. Overall I can't go against Hagler's toughness, skills, and drive, though, and pick him to win a close decision. This one isn't easy for him.

    I dont see Hagler stopping him in a million years, if Auntofermo gave him trouble, then you could imagine Fullmer would give Hagler a tough time of it first time round, even sneaking a decision. Hagler would figure him out in the rematch though. Fullmer's awkward stile would give Hagler fits IMO

    I think this fight would be close, Fullmer wasn't just a brawler he out boxed Basilio twice plus he could be real awkward and was strong as a bull. However I do feel Hagler would win he just has more tools but probably via close decision. Bad Intentions who that in your avatar?:hey
