I was only an instrument that God used to play his music through. Loved being that instrument because he gave me some beautiful music to play.
That's not true I heard that Ray gave in to all of Haglers concessions as long as it was 12 rounds. Hagler was told that there would be no fight if it was 15 rounds.
Also the 5 year lay off impressed everyone including two of the judges when they should have concentrated on the fight and who was actually landing the damaging punches and working throughout the round. Also that the challenger had to take the title away from the champion.

there was only something like 15 punches between as far as punch states go, but most of rays hit haglars gloves and arms, marvin landed the better shot, and like haglar says everytime he had ray going the bell would save him.........ray never shook haglar but haglar shook him a few times, ray did the pita patter thing and stole rounds of idiot judges, i even heard one of the judges say on the lengedary nights show that ray was landing solid shots when he rarely did................it once again comes down to weather a judge likes you or not.
haglar never trusted judges and only roberto duran took him all the way while champ, in that fight he pured it on in the last 3 rounds to make sure of victory, he then lost to ray, i've always felt haglar won, there were moments in the fight which were embaraceing, leonard running away around the ring, hitting gloves and getting the round, disgrace
Ray talks shit, he is trying to make Hagler look a dick an is exaggerating the mind games that he was having.
Ray Leonard won the fight landed more controled the pace and the ring generalship as well. Watch the fight so much not even funny have Ray winning ever time but doesn't matter what i say Ray while alwasy have the win in the record books so i guess that good enough for me.
thanks for the neg rep MR140........YOU SAID...." More to scoring fights then landing harder shots Ray was landing more and had ring gernal ship "........ FACTS ARE HE ONLY LANDED 15 MORE, NO LANDSLIDE, AND HAGLAR WAS PRESSING FORWARD LANDING THE MORE TELLING SHOTS................... I WAS GONER NEG REP BACK BUT I'VE NEVER DONE THAT TO ANYONE, AND RESPECT EVERYONES FREE TO AIR THERE VIEWS ABOUT FIGHTS, BOXERS ETC ETC..................... I DON'T TAKE IT PERSONAL WHEN SOMEONE SAYS SOMETHING AGAINST A BOXER I'M A FAN OF...........SEEMS YOU DO........... GOOD DAY TO YA SON
Like I said (and posted my card) I thinl Leonard nicked it (and I massively wanted Hagler to win) but I can't see how anybody would not have it any more than 1 round either way
My opinion is that SRL won based on the fact that he did more of what he wanted to do than Hagler. Who would've guessed that he'd get by with some of the antics he pulled in that fight? Better yet, how many times during it did you say " He's going down, this is it ", only for him to turn around and unleash a hellacious flurry and work his way out of the corner/off the ropes?
SRL fought his fight a little more than Hagler fought his, and because of that, I have to agree with the decision. Now, do I think it's not debatable? Hell no. This is one of the few instances in a situation like this where both sides of the argument have just as much validity.
