The fight was bought by Leonard and Nevada. There is no way a champ should have been forced to give so many concessions (ring size, rounds, etc). Haggler landed bigger blows but Leonard did his last 30 SEC thing to win rounds. I blame the Petrocelli's for not telling Hagler to go lefty sooner. He was able to switch mid round, but only would do it on their suggestion.
That fight and the Holmes Spinks rematch made me really question boxing.
Larry Holmes was a man who was never given respect deserved. His left jab was devastating and he fought anyone and everyone the public wanted to see him fight.
