Standing in a boxing ring with Howard Cosell , the master of ceremonies, Leonard announced his retirement, saying a bout with Hagler would unfortunately never happen.

Leonard maintained his eye was fully healed, but that he just didn't want to box anymore. Missing the limelight and the competition, Leonard announced in December that he was returning to the ring.

This decision was met with a torrent of criticism from fans and the media, who felt Leonard was taking unnecessary risks with his surgically repaired eye.

A bout with Philadelphia's Kevin Howard, who was 20—4—1, was scheduled for February 25, The fight was postponed when Leonard had minor surgery on his right eye to fix a loose retina.

This latest eye problem further fueled the flames of those who opposed Leonard's comeback. Before the fight with Howard, Dave Jacobs rejoined Leonard's team in a limited role.

Leonard and Howard fought on May 11, , in Worcester, Massachusetts. Howard knocked Leonard flat on his back in the fourth round.

It was the first knockdown of Leonard's professional career. Leonard came back to stop Howard in the ninth round, but the stoppage was disputed, with some feeling that the referee stopped the fight prematurely.

Hagler took a few months to decide, then agreed to the match. Hagler was a heavy favorite. The odds started at 4—1, then settled at 3—1.

The original fight plan for Leonard was to go toe-to-toe with Hagler and try to cut him, but the plan changed about five days before the fight.

Leonard got hit by sparring partner Quincy Taylor and was badly buckled. After that, Leonard decided to box Hagler.

Many were surprised that Hagler, a natural southpaw, opened the fight boxing out of an orthodox stance. After the quick and slick Leonard won the first two rounds on all three scorecards, Hagler started the third round as a southpaw.

Hagler did better, but Leonard's superior speed and boxing skill still allowed him to control the fight.

Hagler continued to score somewhat effectively in round six. Leonard, having slowed down, was obliged to fight more and move less.

However, he was able to outpunch Hagler along the ropes and got the better of several bristling exchanges. Hagler never seized total control of the fight as he had against Thomas Hearns two years earlier, when he brutalized Hearns and scored a third-round knockout.

Hagler's punches lacked snap and, although he was scoring solidly to the body, he looked nothing like the powerful fighter who had dominated the middleweight division for the previous five years.

Leonard's observation that the Hagler who beat John Mugabi was older and slower proved to be spot on. In rounds seven and eight, Hagler's southpaw jab was landing solidly and Leonard's counter flurries were less frequent.

Round nine was the most exciting round of the fight. Hagler hurt Leonard with a left cross and pinned him in a corner.

Leonard looked to be in trouble, but he furiously fought his way out of the corner. The action see-sawed back and forth for the rest of the round, with each man having his moments.

However, Hagler's moments were more spectacular and one of Hagler's cornermen: Roger Perron in an interview that took place on an episode of HBO 's Legendary Nights episode segments in later stated that: "the ninth round was probably Marvin Hagler 's, best round".

Round ten was tame by comparison, as the pace slowed after the furious action of the previous round but with Hagler having more spectacular moments.

Despite Leonard's obvious fatigue, he boxed well in the eleventh. Every time Hagler scored, Leonard came back with something flashier and more eye-catching, if not as effective.

But at that point in the fight, Hagler appeared to be slightly more ring-general and clearly more aggressive.

Between rounds eleven and twelve, Leonard's trainer: Angelo Dundee , implored Sugar Ray to get up off his stool yelling "We got three minutes Hagler's corner was much more reserved prompting Clancy to comment: "They're talking to him like it's an IBM meeting or something He hit Leonard with a big left hand and backed him into a corner.

Leonard responded with a furious flurry, landing few punches but whipping the upset-hoping crowd into a frenzy. Hagler backed off, and Leonard danced away with Hagler in pursuit.

The fight ended with Hagler and Leonard exchanging along the ropes. At the final bell, even uniformed ringside security rushed into the ring applauding and lauding Leonard's effort.

Leonard threw punches and landed , while Hagler threw and landed Leonard was awarded a controversial split-decision. Many felt that Hagler deserved the decision because he was the aggressor and landed the harder punches.

Scottish boxing journalist Hugh McIlvanney wrote that Leonard's plan was to "steal rounds with a few flashy and carefully timed flurries Many others felt that Leonard deservedly got the decision, arguing that Leonard landed more punches and showed better defense and ring generalship.

He didn't just outpoint Hagler, he exposed him. He made him look like a guy chasing a bus. In snowshoes Leonard repeatedly beat Hagler to the punch.

When he did, he hit harder. He hit more often He made Hagler into what he perceived him to be throughout his career—a brawler, a swarmer, a man who could club you to death only if you stood there and let him.
