Sibson had earned the right to challenge Hagler by outpointing Dwight Davison in an official eliminator. He had also knocked out former champion Alan Minter in 3 rounds.

Hagler at his best was a problem for any middleweight in the history of boxing and against Sibson, Marvin was dominant, ending the Englishman's hopes of world glory in 6 rounds.
