Boxing legend suddenly dies shortly after getting COVID vaccine


Old boxing rival Thomas Hearns said Marvelous Marvin Hagler was ‘fighting the after-effects’ of the shot.

Celebrated middleweight boxing champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler died suddenly on March 13, 2021, at the age of 66, after his health deteriorated in the days following a COVID-19 vaccine injection.

Speculations about the cause of Hagler’s death were raised after old boxing rival Thomas Hearns (often called The Hitman) hinted it may be related to the jab.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Hearns detailed the late boxer’s admission to hospital after receiving the injection:

“A real true warrior … Pray for the king and his family … He’s in ICU fighting the after effects of the vaccine! He’ll be just fine but we could use the positive energy and (p)rayer for his (f)ull (r)ecovery!”

About four hours later, Hagler’s wife Kay announced on Facebook that he had died “unexpectedly at his home here in New Hampshire. Our family requests that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”

Hagler’s death was confirmed in a statement on his website, which merely said that he had died of “natural causes.”

Given Hagler’s public profile, social media was set alight with the news of his passing.

Hearns’ Instagram post gained a lot of traction, too, leading him to supply a follow-up message, attempting to quell suspicions arising from his previous suggestion that the jab may have contributed to Hagler’s demise:

“Allow us to have our peace. Our love and respect to Marvin and his family, this is not an anti[-]vaccine campaign … It’s outrageous to have that in mind during the passing of a King, Legend, Father, Husband and so much more.”

Hagler’s wife also took to social media to try and dissuade people of any connection between the inoculation and her husband’s death.

Writing on the “Marvelous Marvin Hagler Fan Club” Facebook page, she said she was “the only person close to him until the last minute” and that “not even his family know all the details” of the end of her husband’s life.

“I do NOT accept to read some stupid comment without knowing really what happen [sic],” she continued, referring to the speculation around the cause of death.

“For sure [it] wasn’t the vaccine that caused his death. My baby left in peace with his usually [sic] smile and now is not the time to talk nonsense,” she said, before announcing that there will be no funeral for the celebrity fighter, apparently in accordance with his wishes.
