Hagler by late rounds stoppage.
hagler seeks and destroys, stoppage around the 9th
Hagler goes into steamroll mode and mows Leonard down early to mid-rounds.
Hagler ko's Leonard within 8 rounds.
Leonard via tough decision.
Hagler wins a comfortable decision this time, providing he doesn't make the same mistakes.
Sorry if its been done before, haven't been here long so didn't know whether it had.
It would be interesting too see how Leonard would go about this fight:huh i've always been of the mind that Hagler would slowly dismantle Leonard from the 10th on. Marvin liked his opponants too come at him & i wonder if Leonard would do that in 82, proberbly would, but going by the Hearns 81 fight where he ballet danced around the ring for the 1st 4 rounds hoping to sneak in with quick combo counters i'am not so sure.
But if Leonard adopted that tactic then he'd be handing the rounds too Hagler's bank, obviously Leonard never had the hidesite of how Duran coped with Hagler, I recken Leonards ego would be his downfall as he'd be applying all his showboating/circus ring round stealing best & he'd want too engage Hagler at some point, he could'nt resist the opportunity too pile in on Hagler around the 6th/7th & thats the start of his downfall for me. Marvin should be well in the groove by then & his counters should have an effect on Leonard.
Would leonard have the speed too get in & out of harms way, i doubt it, Leonard would be well behind on points by the 9th/10th so he'd have too try & take the initutive & then as with all Haglers previous victims he'd be worn down around the 12th, Hagler was an expert at bringing on his foe & countering them too death & once he'd got them in mid range his accurate work rate overwhelmed them all & i see this happening too leonard around the 11th/12th & being TKO'd
But i'd like too see how Hagler went about the fight, would he fall into the same inferioty trap that he did in 87 or would he just go about his biz in the same old succesfull brilliant way, one things for sure & that Leonard would def bring the circus too town & as usual he'd have all the media/****sucker circus fans & gullible judges with him:yep
I see the Hagler that dissected sibbo/fulli obel/hamsho too go about his workman like bizzness & stop Leonard late, punching him too a standstill or he should cruise the UD in a fare & just world:smoke
Hagler too awesome for the welterweight. Leonard had guts and tenacity in bucketloads so it probably goes the distance and is competitive the whole way. Hagler wins decision 9-6, but with maybe a KD along the way.
Hagler would never stop a prime Leonard on any day of Hagler`s career.
Leonard by 15 rd decision, too fast, too slick & too smart.
So yer saying the Leonard that beat Kaluli could jump up too 160 & out slick a prime Hagler over 15:think
Give me a breakdown of how you see the fight would pan out:smoke
Nah. Hagler in his prime would have beaten Leonard.
No contest. A match between man and boy. Dempsey-Carpentier. A right hook to the temple disorients and discombobulates Leonard and a follow up hook beheads the little fart. Fight over
Anyone read the book Four Kings?
Supposedly Leonard initial plan was to try and bust Hagler up
After Quincy Taylor hurt him in sparring Leonard was quoted as saying
"If Quincy Taylor can hurt me than Hagler can hurt me worse" or something along those lines
