    I don't know. Hagler, prepared or not, would not have been used to fighting a guy who would stand there and slug it out with him.

    I am sure others must have said this, but b4 I read all the other replies, I do not think Hagler was ever really hurt by Hearns.
    Shook up for several seconds & immediately bulling ahead with high volume power punches is not hurt.

    I don't think he would have had to, he would have countered more and had more legs. He was really flat that night in March of 1986.

    I agree. Hagler was the perfect fighting machine. I just think that the lack of familiarity of it could take a couple additional rounds to what he was used to. Not that he would be any less dominant.

    Sibson hurt Hagler with a left hook from recollection. Hagler mentioned it many years ago.

    Stopping momentarily in your tracks & immediately blazing away & overpowering your opponent is not hurt.
    Hagler was not more than mildly stunned.

    Didn't Briscoe hit Hagler the hardest?

    I don’t think Hearns actually “rocked” Marvin he looked slightly uncomfortable if anything and proceeded to march forward and put a beating on him.
