I do. Hagler faced everybody, and was in one of the best middleweight eras ever. He beat Thomas Hearns who was thought to be invinsible. Much like Sonny Liston, Joe Louis, George Foreman, and Mike Tyson. Hagler was like Frazier, rather short for his weight class and would come at you ducking and weaving throwing 100 punches a round. Roy Jones Jr was duck, so I doubt they would fight even if they were in the same era. RJJ might win the first or second round, but after that it would be lights out for him. Hopkins could slug it out, but I don't know how he could handle the pressure Hagler woulkd put him under.

I think Jones and B-hop are too Big for him. I don't arguee about Hagler's style. He was a hard hitter who charged right at you.

B-Hop a defensive wizzard an a stern puncher and Jones who is even bigger was quicker than haggler, and had some good pop in his gloves, and he too was next to impossible to hit.

Think about it, Hagler beat Ray Leonard just got the decision taken away from him. If he beat Ray Leonard he could take Jones Jr. Hagler beat Hearns who was much bigger than him. So size can not be counted against him.

well for a start i dont think eubank and benn get the credit they truly deserve, i would pick a prime eubank to win a ud against haggler out of all the guy's listed chris had the best chin undoubtidly and would beat hop,g-man,rjj,haggler and he beat and drew with benn.

i never actualy rated haggler as highly as srl,hearns or duran simpliy because he never left his comfort zone of 160, hearns and srl were 147 guy's and duran was a 135 guy and i give these guy's a lot more credit because they left there respective weights to seek the fights.

i dont agree.

hagler would KO eubank. Haggler had ferousious punching power and would throw lots of hard punches like he always did and it nearly always worked. I do like eubank and give him credit for his chin but hagler is a better boxer altogether and way to strong.

what eubank are you talking about the one who beat benn at 160 or the one who drew with benn at 167 because there 2 diffrent fighter dude.

when chris was at 160 he was an absolute monster at the weight prob the best middle since monzon but when he moved up he neglected his training and had obvious had stamina isues.

tommy gun
did you watch that program about the top ten fighters ever.
Eubank wasnt there. Hagler was.
Hagler is more of a legend than eubank in the world of boxing. And i am talking about the 160 version of eubank.

the program with the top 10 fighters is just one man's opinion you could get 100 guy's making 100 programs and all the fighter's will be diffrent, "opinions"

chris was faster than haggler he was never ko'd having been in with massive hiters like benn,watson and thomphson (who was a cruiser) his power wasn't as good as marvins but was awesome at 160.

exactly. I think if eubank fought in that era with the likes of ray leonard, thomas hearns and roberto duran he wouldnt have been so sucessfull.

all fights around the 154 th 160 divisions.
