Former undisputed world champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler passed away at his New Hampshire home in the United States of America on Saturday aged 66. 
The former World Boxing Council (WBC), World Boxing Association (WBA) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) middleweight champion’s death was announced by his wife Kay on the Marvelous Marvin Hagler FAN CLUB page on Facebook. 
“I’m sorry to make a sad announcement. Today unfortunately my beloved husband Marvin Hagler passed away at his home here in New Hampshire,” Kay wrote on Facebook. 
Hagler won the WBC and WBA middleweight crowns in September 1980 when he stopped the late Alan Minter from the United Kingdom at the Wembley Arena, London, in the UK. 
The International Boxing Hall of Fame and World Boxing Hall of Fame inductee kept a winning streak until he lost his WBC middleweight belt to Sugar Ray Leonard in 1987. Hagler fought against the likes of Thomas Hearns, John Mugabi and Roberto Duran.
