Top Rank's Statement On The Passing
Of Marvelous Marvin Hagler
Top Rank is devastated by the passing of the incomparable
Marvelous Marvin Hagler, one of boxing’s most beloved and
accomplished champions. Born in Newark, New Jersey, and
raised in Brockton, Massachusetts, Hagler overcame humble
beginnings to forge a storied professional career that
included 12 successful defenses of the undisputed
middleweight world championship. He concluded his career in
1987 with a 62-3-2 record and was inducted into the
International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1993.
Top Rank is honored to have promoted a fighter who embodied
everything noble about the sport. The Top Rank family mourns
the loss of a legend and sends our condolences to his loved
ones and friends.
Said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum, “Marvelous Marvin Hagler
was among the greatest athletes that Top Rank ever promoted.
He was a man of honor and a man of his word, and he
performed in the ring with unparalleled determination. He
was a true athlete and a true man. I will miss him greatly."
