    Sean had good skills and Haugen IMO lacked the power to stop the same guy who beat Kenty...Haugen is underrated but so is O'Grady....he had alot of pro fights before he moved into mainstream competition though he was thrown in over his head as a teen vs Danny"Little Red"Lopez and was nearly burned up when he won the title he fell apart soon after with losses to Ganigan, Ranzany and Verderosa his armor had been chipped.

    I can hear Haugen accusing Sean of beating the same Tijuana cab drivers he accused JCC of and funny enough Sean's career followed a similar track which may have included cab drivers.

    I saw Sean fight some of the Tijuana cab drivers in the so-called Hotel Ball rooms in Oklahoma City back in the 70's. Cold beer and decent looking Cowgirls were also available.

    Bubble Gum Kid by UD. Has the workrate to pull away over the course of the fight.

    I pick Sean. Haugen was good but maybe a bit overrated now. I don't see how he edged that Camacho fight.

    Good fight. I bet they would do it more than once.

    He edged the first Camacho fight because Hector got a point deducted.

    Camacho beat him clearly in the rematch.

    Mutt got in Camacho's craw which was a good move and proved Camacho didn't have the mettle (at that time) to face a down in the dirt fighter who was crafty both physically and mentally. Brown, Curet, Paz, Jacobson, and of course Paul. Greg had some nice pelts on his wall.

    I'll give Hector credit. He took a world class beating from Chavez like man. He earned my respect that night.

    I remember that.. Haugen was so happy. I still remember his smile when he got that point. I guess it was his way to win. I was still shocked how easily Chavez beat him. Just shows me how much greater Chavez was than Hector..

    Haugen got completely dominated by the two all time greats he faced... Whitaker and Chavez.

    Doesn't have much bearing here though... O'Grady wasn't in the class of a Whitaker/Chavez. Wasn't in the class of Camacho either.

    The question I always had was how would OGrady do with Mancini. I would pick Sean, but it is hard to figure.
