Marvelous Marvin Hagler

Hagler - B

By David Martinez /

My favorite and the second best middleweight (160 lbs.) champion, next to Carlos Monzon, that I have seen in the past half century (50 years) in boxing is Marvin Hagler (62-3-2 / 52 by KO).

The greatest middleweight and “pound for pound” boxer EVER was Sugar Ray Robinson.

A southpaw, Hagler threw a lead right hand jab that was absolutely and unbelievably devastating. His round one with Thomas Hearns and round six with John Mugabi were highlight reels for every boxing fan.

An amazing fact is that, in 67 professional fights and not counting the slip in the Juan Roldan fight, Hagler was never knocked down, let alone, knocked out.
