Marvin Hagler's wife strenuously denies he died of COVID vaccine reaction

The wife of former middleweight boxing champion Marvin Hagler has strongly denied because of a reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine.

Hagler died at the weekend at the age of 66.

Hours before his death, Hagler's former opponent Thomas Hearns asked for prayers for the 'Marvelous' one, saying he was "fighting the after effects of the vaccine".

The claim - since deleted by Hearns - had been used by anti-vaxxers to push their agenda.

But Kay Hagler - Marvin's wife - has responded with a message to the official Marvin Hagler Fan Club Facebook page, saying, "I do NOT accept to read some stupid comment without knowing really what happen (sic).

"For sure wasn't the vaccine that caused his death . My baby left in peace with his usually smile and now is not the time to talk nonsense ."

Kay Hagler statement:

I would like to speak with my heart to all of you. I apologise if my English is not written correctly but I hope everyone understands me in this difficult moment.

After 31 years the love of my life is gone and my life without him no longer makes sense ,but I can feel him next to me even now and he's telling me not to give up and be strong for him.

Thank you for your love , he loved people so much, he loved you all he was happy when he read your comments he was a special person the most beautiful person i had ever met in all my life .

I was the only person close to him until the last minute , and I am the only person that know how things went not even his family know all the details and I do NOT accept to read some stupid comment without knowing really what happen .

For sure wasn't the vaccine that caused his death . My baby left in peace with his usually smile and now is not the time to talk nonsense .

Marvin hated funerals and therefore there will be no funerals or church celebrations he wants to be remembered with a happy smile but I would be happy if each of you can light a candle for him.

However there is something special that I will do because it was his wishes and you will be informed at the right time by me I just need time.

Thank you all for your love

Kay G. Hagler
