Former undisputed middleweight world champion 'Marvelous' Marvin Hagler died at the age of 66 on Saturday. The southpaw dominated the middleweight division from 1979 until his controversial defeat by Sugar Ray Leonard in April 1987. He is also an inductee of the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
 
"Today, unfortunately my beloved husband Marvelous Marvin passed away unexpectedly at his home here in New Hampshire," his wife Kay Hagler said, on social media. Hagler had legally changed his name to Marvelous in 1982 after being annoyed that commentators didn't refer to him by it. He was twice named fighter of the year by Ring magazine, who also dubbed him as the fourth greatest middleweight of all-time.

Hagler ended up winning a fight against Terry Dobb in 1973 and was named the AAU 165 pound champion. His training history included a ritualistic routine that involved training in empty Cape Cod motels during the winter, and running in combat boots, often backwards. Following his retirement, Hagler began appearing in action films such as 'Indio' and 'Indio 2', 'Brutal Bonanza', 'Geno's Plan', 'Lethal Lunch Date', 'Black Market Wedding', and the video game 'Fight Night: Round 3'. He was living in Milan, Italy, with his wife Kay Guarrera and their five children by the names of Charelle, James, Celeste, Gentry, and Marvin, Jr.
