Felix isn't a middleweight, and just cuz u fight at middle doesn't make u a middle weight... dummy... Hagler was a solid middleweight. Hagler would rush Tridad and crush him... if Hagler beat Hearns, he'd beat Trinidad... Hagler would crush Hopkins...
Hagler beating Hearns has nothing to do with Hagler beating Tito. Polar opposites style wise. Tito's approach was made for Hagler. Tommy's was not but he fought Haglers fight from the opening bell.
Tommy actually had the ability to beat Hagler and instead tried to out slug him. As much as I like Tito, nothing about him gives him a shot. Hopkins/Hagler is a toss up
Look Tito was a huge welterweight and he fit into to mw pretty well. The thing is that if you were a good boxer he lost if you could move well he lost. The only time he didn't is Oscar in which he got a gift a huge gift and thats the best win he ever had. Tito pretty overrated fighter and yea he would get crushed.
Trinidad isn't one of my fav fighters but hell don't try and play him down to be some run of the mill guy, he'll go down as one of THE BEST welterweight champions in history, he was one of if not the longest running Welterweight champions in the history of the sport (from 1993 to 1999, including 16 title defenses) and you don't have wins over the following by being just an ok fighter
Tito fought a solid middleweight IN Hopkins..and basically got manhandled... even as great as many think Hopkins is, there's no scenario where Hopkins beats Hagler, at his best... Hagler was a beast. He couldn't be hurt by a mortal man and systemtically tore opponents into pieces.. if there was a man who was really mean..it was Hagler. he was the modern day clubber Lang...did it all on his own and by his own rules. l

There's knowledgeable posters..... and then there's you.
I'm the biggest Trinidad on this forum, and went on record early saying there was no chance Trinidad beats Hagler. Obviously a troll thread. But calling Trinidad overrated is just as ignorant.... which in your forum history is nothing surprising.
You have said far worse things then i have about any fighter Tito. I guess he is overrated in my opinion because i see his name with fighters it should not be with. Tell me did he not get a huge gift against Oscar at the time they fought. Also when he met the atgs in their primes did he win or did he get crushed. I am not sure were you rate Trindad so maybe overrated is not the word i should of use. I am very well informed been around for a while were do you rate Trindad and see if my overrated statement was wrong or if it was right.
Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
Hey all i said is Trindad is overrated because he lost all his big fights that were against greats. Then went on to get schooled by another fighter who lost his big fights Oscar so i don't think his name should be in the same sentence as Hagler. As for Welterweight head to head its SRR and Leonard then who cares.
Thing with Trindad that when he stepped it up to elite level atg level he failed really bad. I mean Out of his Hopkins and Wright he won like no rounds i mean just so one sided. As for the Oscar fight another big fighter who lost big fights he was gifted the fight in which he won like fucking no rounds damn near.
