Hagler was controlling the fight, but Minter had some moments as well. That fight very well could have been a 15 round battle with a close decision.
The Hamsho loss certainly did him in for good, though.

He was a stubborn guy, and held that against Minter for years.
That wasn't Minter's fault! The Pacers still play the Pistons in Detroit every year.
