On this day in Fistiana... Hagler vs. Roldan March 30, 1984

Marvelous Marvin Hagler vs. Juan Domingo Roldan
March 30, 1984

By Alex Pierpaoli

On this day in fistiana in Las Vegas, the Marvelous One defeated rugged Argentine brawler Juan Roldan to win his ninth successful defense of the Middleweight Championship. Roldan is the one and only fighter to have scored a knockdown versus Hagler, although it was not without controversy. More of a brush-down than due to the force of a punch Hagler is ruled down in round number one. Check it out via the embed below and decide if Referee Tony Perez made an error in ruling Hagler down.

No matter, the Marvelous One went on to administer a thorough and solid drubbing, stopping Roldan in round number 10.
