Lets say Hagler at his Middleweight peak were to jump up to 175lb and fight a Prime Roy Jones Jr.

Who wins and how?

Hagler never had any intentions of moving up to 175lbs as he refused to move up when in his prime as a champion to fight Dwight Braxton... however if hypothetically he was to fight Roy Jones at that weight i see him losing by a landslide points defeat or if Jones wanted to become the first to stop Hagler it may well be a late TKO for Jones... Hagler was good but he never had boxing ability or skills like Roy Jones

I don't think Jones would stop Hagler. They guy walked through 6'2 Hearns right hand.

I do think he'd beat Hagler on a solid Ud though. Hagler was to hard of a man to really be stopped unless he was in perhaps a Hw match.

Is this a joke?

RJJ wins every round.

Hagler's only 5f9 and he was a big MW, he couldn't handle a move up to LHW. Roy wouldn't stop him either, but I predict a UD for Roy.

Jones. A middleweight matchup between the two is better.

Hagler was actually a small middleweight. Just ripped to shreds and tough as nails.

Hagler was great but 175 would not be a comfort zone for him. RJ by 8-4 type decision.
