What part of "Leonard barely fought at the weight" do you not understand? You're clearly not an intelligent person,but that should be easy enough to absorb.
Leonard a welterweight fighting as a middleweight - and,despite being years removed from his prime,rusty,having spent much of his inactivity snorting coke and fighting two weight classes above his best weight.....still beat the man who was regarded as being the very best in the sport.That's an accomplishment Hagler never came close to.
Hagler's era of middleweights was mediocre.The fact that he was continually calling out fighters in weight classes below is a testament to the lack of truly interesting fights that were available to him in his own division.
Hagler was a hypocrite for calling out fighters a division or two below him but never even considering the possibility of moving up a division to make millions against someone like Spinks.
