It’s with a heavy heart that I report former middleweight champ Marvelous Marvin Hagler passed away unexpectedly on Saturday (March 13). 

Marvin’s wife, Kay G. Hagler, confirmed the news via a post on his Facebook fan page. 

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. Our family requests that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.  With love.

According to TMZ, Marvin’s son, James, said his father was taken to a hospital in New Hampshire earlier on Saturday because he was suffering from chest pains and he was having trouble breathing.

About four hours later, Marvin Hagler was gone. 

He was 66.

My sincerest condolences and prayers to the Hagler family and all who knew and loved Marvin.

May he Rest In Peace.
