    Hagler wasn't a g.

    He was the king in the ring, but outside he got easily "out-g'd"

    Hagler was one of the most intense fighters of all time. Very introspective and sensitive, yet in the ring he turned on his momentum.

    I still think Duran was badder. Hags let a 37 year old come out of retirement and take his title.

    Hagler was wound up way too tight.

    Hagler obviously was a single minded and intense tough guy who played on that image. However I always though at heart he was possibly a cautious fighter. Sure he walked through Hearns,Mugabi and Roldan and although he was a great boxer fighter I think instinctively he was a boxer.
    The respect he gave two smaller guys in Duran and Antuofermo means he possibly wasn't as **** sure of his own invincibility as we may have thought.
