Over the last week, much has been made about what will determine the outcome of the Hopkins-De La Hoya Middleweight Championship fight. I've read and heard all type of scenarios as to what will decide this fight. In fact, it's been over analyzed. It's not like either fighter has an option on how to fight the opponent, because they don't.
The closer I look at this fight, the more it resembles Hagler-Leonard. Forget all the parallels between Leonard and De La Hoya along with Hagler and Hopkins. What these two fights share most is, what fighter can force their opponent to fight their fight. Which is exactly what decided the Hagler-Leonard Super-Fight.
