He lived up to his nickname, came out attacking from the opening bell and didn't let up until either he or his opponent was battered. Very entertaining fighter, he once said that he didn't wake up until he started feeling pain in the ring and that he liked it. James Kirkland kind of reminds me of him.

Exciting, aggressive but limited. I remember Hard Rock Green doing a number on him, til Green was cut and froze. He was approching a title shot when Scypion showed us his limitations. Good thing because Hagler would have hurt him bad.
But he was fun to watch.
