With slightly over two weeks before the much anticipated Hopkins-De La Hoya Middleweight title bout, it seems as if it's already been analyzed from every angle. Another thing that's been a constant surrounding Hopkins-De La Hoya, is the similarities it shares with the Hagler-Leonard Middleweight title fight in April of 1987. I've even heard Hopkins-De La Hoya referred to as Hagler-Leonard lite, the inference being that Hagler and Leonard were better fighters and outrank Hopkins and De La Hoya.

In my opinion, Hagler and Leonard do outrank Hopkins and De La Hoya. It seems that when making comparisons between these two fights, the question or debate that arises most is between Hagler and Hopkins. It seems an overwhelming majority are in agreement that Leonard significantly outranks De La Hoya, and would've beat him had they fought at their peak. It seems Hagler-Hopkins is a little more disputed. Although Hagler is viewed by a majority as outranking and being a better fighter than Hopkins, it isn't as one sided as Leonard over De La Hoya.

Hagler vs De La Hoya? The only difference is that Oscar would be sleeping by the third.
