Ray announced his retirement after the charity event, but was ready to return in a year from a bad eye injury. Ray saw Hagler not being the Hagler of old and saw his chance to get a wain. Ray finally accepted a fight with Hagler, under certain circumstances. Ray wanted a larger ring, lighter gloves and a 12 round fight instead of a 15 round fight. This ensured Hagler would have to chase Ray more and would limit any possible punishment Ray would take.
|"You better get your peanuts and popcorn early because this doesn't necessarily have to go 12 rounds." - Marvin Hagler|
|"He's all yours son. Just keep messin' him around." - Leonard's trainer|
|"You went right handed that round. Stay southpaw, okay?"|
|"Feint this sucker, he'll go for it, Ray. Feint it!"|
|"He's showboatin'. He's a god-d*mned sissy." - Hagler's trainer | "Stay on him. Rough him up."|
10-8 Leonard. Sorry, but this was an embarrassing round for Hagler. He got owned here. He got nothing in, Leonard showboated and still kicked his butt.
|"Leonard's doing nothing to make him miss, he's just missing."|
|"THREE MINUTES! NEW CHAMPION." - Ray's Trainer|
I had the fight 115-112 for Sugar Ray Leonard.
The judges had it 115-113 Hagler, 118-110 Leonard, 115-113 Leonard.
|Hey, it's Chevy Chase!|
|"This is the greatest accomplishment of my life." - Ray Leonard|
