Leonard had floated in and out of retirement and the controversial and charismatic star finally returned to take on?the "Marvelous One." It was the biggest fight anyone in the boxing world could make at the time and it returned one of the most memorable fights of the 20th century. Hagler walked off into retirement convinced that he had been wronged by the judges and Hagler has remained adamant to this day that he won the historic fight back on April 6th, 1987 in the Las Vegas desert. The fight is still talked about to this day and it remains part of the hall of fame legacy of both Leonard and Hagler. Thanks to both men.   Lotierzo Looks Back at Hagler versus Leonard Our veteran analyst Frank Lotierzo remembers the fight from when it went down and 30 years later his feelings on the fight are as strong as ever.
