one of the ultimate classic fights of all time. when i first watched this back in the day i thought Hagler got robbed, was a bit biased as i'm a Hagler fan. not taking anything away from Leonard, he is a phenomenal boxer its just i prefer Hagler/Hearns over Ray.
that said, after watching this fight again, i'm gonna have to agree with the judges. Hagler was the aggressor but he missed too many shots and solid punches he landed werent convincing enough nor did they seem to hurt leonard. leonard stuck to his game plan and it worked. he was able to dodge most of marvin's punches and stick his flurries with precision.
thats my opinion on the fight right now. what do yall think ? who took it ?

I was only like five years old when this fight went down, but I remember them showing a replay it on Wide World of Sports when I was a bit older. I remember the first couple of rounds being crazy, and thinking that Sugar Ray won. It's been a long time though, so my memory is a bit hazy. I'm gonna try to watch this soon and drop my thoughts because this one comes up a lot when talking about GOAT fights.

This was a good fight but I like Sugar Ray Leonard more than Marvin.
