What do you guys think would happen if Hagler fought @ Junior Middle weight or Super Middleweight?

He would be superb at both, I think he could make JMW easily and possibly remain unbeaten as he was around 158 most of his career. SMW would be a challenge with many tough fights(depending on the era of course) but, he would still be dominant but, pick up a few losses.

Would of been really good at both but I think Middleweight was probable his best weight.

How do you think he matches with Toney at SMW, In a 3 fight series both are taking losses but, I'd edge Toney at SMW.

Id expect him too dominate at 154 if he made the weight comfortably,such a skilled fighter and very strong not sure if id favour anybody over him at LMW,at 168 its a different story,he could beat a lot of good fighters at the weight but id expect it too be more competitive and for him too drop a few close decisions

SCtrojan, Toney over Hagler at any weight! You should have your bottom spanked and sent to bed with no supper. GTFOH with that BS.

i think james toney would probably beat hagler 2 out 3 at 168. I think toney is the better counterpuncher and inside fighter. i think haglers best bet would be to use his better footwork from the outside. but i can see james great head movement still frustrating hagler and luiring him into couters

He was kind of short for a middleweight, and that height disadvantage would come into play at 168, but not that much.

He had quite a long reach.

Could you ever imagine Hagler needing a gift decision to beat a journeyman like Dave Tiberi?

I hate when people say that he had broad shoulders but his arms were not long.

And Hagler really is tailor made for Toney. Hagler can't out boxing him, and everyone gets destroyed by Toney on the inside.

@SCtrojansbaby even though i think toney would beat him i wouldnt say hagler was tailor made for him.
@Scott9945 could you imagine if hagler got hit by as many right hands by Toney as he did with a blown up roberto duran

Hagler would have shaken them off just as easily. Toney was a very good middleweight. Hagler was in an entirely different class.
