Writing this on a Saturday evening. Because I just finished a 13-hour shift at the hospital, but it doesn’t compare with Hagler’s ability to go 15 rounds. Because he had one of the greatest chins in the history of boxing, and one of the best nicknames that he changed to his legal name.
He is now Marvelous Marvin Hagler.
Funny names facts:
- His first wife was named Bertha. They were a couple named Bertha and Marvin
- He retired from boxing after a very controversial loss to Sugar Ray Leonard, which ended Hagler’s 11-year unbeaten streak. The ref with the most egregious scorecard in that fight? JoJo Guerra
He now lives in Italy and stars in the occasional action film. Marvelous indeed! Happy Sunday, funny names fans!
