Default How bad did the loss to Leonard hurt Hagler

Hagler thought all he had to do was `turn up and knock him out`yet he was beaten to the punch, laughed at, bolo-punched and made to look very ordinary by Sugar Ray Leonard.. now 23yrs on most boxing fans admit that Leonard was the winner, but how bad did losing that fight hurt Marvelous Marvin Hagler.

Hagler was on the verge of retiring before he even fought leonard

I dunno if it hurt his career but emotionally he wanted to beat him and he didnt

He's still an all-time great, but I think it hurt his legacy a lot.

He was the reigning middleweight champion, one of the best P4P fighters in the world and lost to a welterweight who hadn't fought in three years. Not good.

Hagler went into seclusion for months after the fight and wouldn't be seen or heard from again until his wife went to court to get a restraining order against him after he allegedly abused her.She also claimed that he had cried over the loss and that he had become addicted to cocaine and alcohol.



I'd say it hurt him very much.

That loss is one of the reason i rate monzon as the greatest middleweight of all time, monzon's sugar ray welterweight champion jose napoles got stopped by king monzon, were as when hagler tuck on his jose napoles former semi retired sugar ray he got outboxed and beaten to the punch

Jose Napoles in no way resembles Ray Leonard, although Monzon was good in my opinion he was far from being the best middleweight of all time, he barely makes the Top 10
