The wife of Marvelous Marvin Hagler has denied that her husband’s death was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, amid reports on social media that the legendary warrior died after receiving the injection.
“I was the only person close to him until the last minute, and I am the only person who knows[s] how things went, not even his family knows all the specifics, and I DO NOT agree to read any dumb comment without understanding truly what happened,” Kay G. Hagler, the 66-year-old former boxer and actor, wrote in a Facebook post.

“It was definitely not the vaccine that killed him,” she added in her blunt remark. “With his normal (sic) smile, my baby left in peace, and now is not the time to speak nonsense.”
According to a TMZ article citing Hagler’s son, Hagler died over the weekend on March 13 after being reportedly admitted to a New Hampshire hospital for chest pains and trouble breathing.
Several social media posts fuelled speculation that the boxing legend was hospitalized after suffering side effects from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine and later died as a result of it.
“Hammering Hank Aaron… now Marvelous Marvin Hagler, two legends dead after taking the #covid19 vaccine,” said Major League Baseball player Aubrey Huff in an Instagram article that was later flagged as false by a fact-checker on the site.
The CCP virus, also known as the novel coronavirus, causes COVID-19, which is a disease caused by it.
Multiple posts alleging Hagler died after taking the vaccine have included Thomas Hearn, a former professional boxer in the United States who had previously competed against him.
“A real warrior,” she says. Pray for the kind and his family… he’s in the ICU battling vaccine side effects!” On March 14, Hearns posted something on Instagram that has since been removed by the website.
According to Hagler’s widow, there will be no funeral because her husband disliked funerals, but she plans to do “something special” in his honor.
“I will do something special because it was his wish, and you will be told at the appropriate time by me; all I need is time,” she wrote.
Hagler is known as one of boxing’s greatest middleweights, having defeated “rival” Hearns in a contest that lasted less than eight minutes but was so epic that it is still remembered in the sport.
He never fought again after losing a decision to Sugar Ray Leonard two years later, which he said was stolen by the judges.
Hagler fought on the biggest stages of boxing against the best, as he, Leonard, Hearns, and Roberto Duran dominated the middleweight division during the 1980s, when boxing was at its height. Hagler, a reserved man with a brooding public image, fought 67 times as a pro out of Brockton, Massachusetts, ending 62-3-2 with 52 knockouts over 14 years.
He fought with a chip on his shoulder, claiming that boxing fans and promoters alike had refused to give him his due. He went to court to legally change his name after he was not introduced by his nickname of Marvelous before a 1982 fight.
Any reservations? On a spring night in 1985, Hagler was not indeed Marvelous was deleted. He and Hearns fought outside at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in one of the era’s major middleweight fights, and when the bell rang, they exchanged punches for three minutes in what many believe to be the best opening round in boxing history.
Hagler was born in Newark, New Jersey, and moved to Brockton in the late 1960s with his family. Goody and Pat Petronelli, who ran a gym in Brockton and trained Hagler during his professional career, discovered him as a novice.
In 1993, he was elected to the World Boxing Hall of Fame.
