Prime vs Prime. I was thinking about this earlier today. I dont ever remember anyon posting a thread about it. there have always been the comparisons as to who's the better fighter. I wondered what other thought if they were to match up H2H prime vs prime.
I may be going out on a limb here when I say Hopkins takes this. I think Hagler's height and reach would put him at significant disadvantages to a guy who may be on eth the best defensive fighters at MW. I think Hagler(whose boxing ability was underrated), come out with reckless abandon trying to punish Hopkins body. Hopkins realizes that he cant win MArvin Hagler's fight. I think Hopkins would keep Hagler on the outside as often as possible. I think he pulls out a SD against Hagler in the long run.
Hearns had significant height, reach and speed advantages on Hagler. he just negated all of thos things when he decided to fight Marvin's fight. Stupidest mistake in the world. Hopkins would not make that mistake. Also at 160, Hopkins looks alot bigger than Hearns. I think Hagler would have been in for a tough fight. What do some of you guys think??
