Marvin Hagler, middleweight boxing's towering champion, dies aged 66

Marvelous Marvin Hagler stopped Thomas Hearns in a fight that lasted less than eight minutes yet was so epic that it still lives in boxing lore. Two years later he was so disgusted after losing a decision to Sugar Ray Leonard stolen, he claimed, by the judges that he never fought again.
One of the great middleweights in boxing history, Hagler died Saturday at the age of 66. His wife, Kay, announced his death on the Facebook page for Hagler’s fans.

Marvelous Marvin Hagler – a life in pictures


“I am sorry to make a very sad announcement,” she wrote. “Today unfortunately my beloved husband Marvelous Marvin passed away unexpectedly at his home here in New Hampshire. Our family requests that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”
Hagler fought on boxing’s biggest stages against its biggest names, as he, Leonard, Hearns and Roberto Duran dominated the middleweight classes during a golden time for boxing in the 1980s. Quiet with a brooding public persona, Hagler fought 67 times over 14 years as a pro out of Brockton, Massachusetts, finishing 62-3-2 with 52 knockouts.
“If they cut my bald head open, they will find one big boxing glove,” Hagler once said. “That’s all I am. I live it.”


Hagler was unmistakable in the ring, fighting out of a southpaw stance with his bald head glistening in the lights. He was relentless and he was vicious, stopping opponent after opponent during an eight year run that began with a disputed draw against Vito Antuofermo in 1979 that he later avenged.

He fought with a proverbial chip on his shoulder, convinced that boxing fans and promoters alike didn’t give him his proper due. He was so upset that he wasn’t introduced before a 1982 fight by his nickname of Marvelous that he went to court to legally change his name.

“He was certainly one of the greatest middleweights ever but one of the greatest people that I’ve ever been around and promoted,” promoter Bob Arum said. “He was a real man, loyal and just fantastic person.”

Any doubts Hagler wasn’t indeed Marvelous were erased on a spring night in 1985. He and Hearns met in one of the era’s big middleweight clashes outdoors at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and when the opening bell rang they traded punches for three minutes in an opening round many consider the best in boxing history.

Despite, maybe because of being brought up and Confirmed in the Church of England I now have no formal religious affiliation.

However, isn't it absurd and profoundly GODLESS that only people like myself, and 2 million Israelis, as opposed to the Pope, Ayatollahs’ and ALL of the other so allegedly holy leaders of the religious monoliths like Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, who have not discerned a human rights violation, publicly challenged the so OBVIOUS HERESY in the human family being manipulated into ALL injecting this pathogen composed of mercury, aluminium, Nanite particles and foetal or monkey RNA fragments masquerading as the Corona virus Covid 19 vaccine, aspiring to rewrite the human genome/GOD gene, without asking or telling us?

Additionally, why should non-whites generally, specifically peoples of African ethnicity even consider allowing the so consistently malicious PALEFACE descendants of the profoundly EVIL PARASITES who systematically enslaved our African ancestors (and their siblings and comrades who were tortured mutilated and murdered for either refusing to BOW, be broken or as the means of traumatizing the rest of us into total subservience) without apology or reparation to date, to be putting anything GOOD as opposed to toxic, and debilitating, straight past all of our natural DEFENCES for protection from a very nasty Flu with an over 95% survival rate, as isn’t taking this injection highlighting anything other than most people being monumentally STUPID, very very easily manipulated?

Even prominent and affluent blacks like Hank Aaron and now Marvin Hagler have lost their lives due to beleiving the so LUDICROUS become human guinea pigs narrative.

Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?
