Monzon vs Hagler – In our new “What If” series at TBC we are once again joined by Frank Lotierzo to talk about the potential behind a Carlos Monzon versus Marvin Hagler middleweight match-up.
Monzon retired in 1977 with the WBA and WBC world middleweight titles in his possession. By November of 1979, Hagler had risen to win the middleweight championships. Though they never met in the ring, many have speculated about a meeting between them. The fact is that both men are rated in the top 5 of most all-time lists when they are rating the middleweight division and the match-up, even if speculative, makes for great boxing talk. Enjoy!
