Marvelous Marvin Hagler has passed away at age 66, his wife, Kay, confirmed in a Facebook post on Saturday evening. 
"I am sorry to make a very sad announcement. Today unfortunately my beloved husband Marvelous Marvin passed away unexpectedly at his home here in New Hampshire," Kay wrote on Marvelous Marvin Hagler Fan Club page. "Our family requests that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. With love, Kay G. Hagler."

Great fighter.

Hagler was involved in one of the greatest rounds of boxing history with his First Round against Thomas “Hitman” Hearns. That fight was one of the classics.

Hagler was also robbed against Sugar Ray. The fix was in without a doubt.


RIP Marvelous Marvin.

Was that the Spring '87 fight? Or an earlier one?
I never saw the '87 fight but remember the hype around it.

April 6, 1987

I was in the service at the time on an island called Adak, Alaska.  We got the fight piped onto the base. One of my buddies recorded it.  There were so many arguments over that match.  At one point, a bunch of us watched the whole thing and scored it round by round on notebook paper.  For me, this has to be the most watched boxing match that went the distance.  I have viewed matches like Hagler vs. Hearns over and over, but it only went Three Rounds.

The only way to try and score a fight from TV is to mute the commentary. It will always subtly influence what your watching.

I think Hagler got robbed too. Leonard benefitted from curious judging at the end of his career, and boxing is/was as corrupt as it came in that time frame.

Hagler was a god. I've been to dozens of boxing cards. However, Hagler headlined the most important card I've ever been to. Hagler vs. Mustafa Hamsho at MSG for the undisputed middleweight title. Hamsho was a legit #1 contender but got starched quickly by Marvin. We had yellow seats which were pretty decent in the old Garden before all the idiotic renovations. Paid $60 for them and I think this was 1984. Worth every penny.

Wow, that’s a hell of an expensive ticket in 1984. You could still see big bands for less than $10 at that point.
