Watching it, I thought Hagler thoroughly outboxed Antuofermo. The draw scorecard was a bad joke to me because I didn't think it was a close fight. In the Leonard fight Hagler was not the same Hagler he was in prime in terms of his reflexes. Combining that with Leonard's speed, which always would have been a Leonard advantage, Hagler looked old, slow, confused at times, and he lost the fight legitimately in my opinion. He also might have been a little tight early in that fight. Leonard has made comments about how Hagler was acting out of character in the ring before the introductions and I noticed that he was when I watched it.


I think in the Duran fight many were expecting Hagler to run right through Duran. Duran's skills prevented that but I thought Duran clearly lost. But the skill of Duran was more of a factor than Hagler tightening up in my opinion.

I personally think it's mostly a matter of styles and Hagler did what he could and needed to do. But in that Leonard fight Hagler did seem tight early.
