I know it is hard to compare athletes from different eras, but I would have loved to see these two fight. Both are favorites of mine. Bernard Hopkins holds the record for title defenses at 17 (and he is still going). Marvin Hagler defended his title 12 times before losing a controversal decision to Sugar Ray Leonard. I think that Bernard Hopkins is a better boxer than Hagler. However, Hagler is a stronger puncher than Hopkins. Both fighters are extremely tough (although I think Hagler has a better chin). While Hopkins has the greater amount of defenses, Hagler probably fought the better competition.... Who do you guys think would win if they went head-to-head? Who was the better middleweight?
