Marvelous Marvin Hagler


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!

    Everyone should have an alliterative adjective before his or her name. Marvelous surely suited him better than Mediocre Marvin. Ex: I could be Kempt Kerbey bc I am neat and tidy. Clearly Kampuchean is mo’ better, but I have no Cambodian qualities. And you could be deft, dauntless, or debonair…

    It was popular to give girls names that started with the same letter as their last name when I was being christened. So Susan Smith, Julie Jones, Barbara Bannerman, Cathy Clark were a few of my contemporaries. Sheesh. Once I was at a party with my now ex-future husband, I had acquired the regrettable nickname “DeeDee” and so had two other poor girls at the party. Guess what? We were all there with guys named “Gary”, so it was: Deedee and Gary, Deedee and Gary and Deedee and Gary.
    If that’s not enough to make you throw your cocktail across the carefully manicured lawn I don’t know what is!

    “. . . Dave comes out of Anatomy class swinging, and lands a knockout blow . . .”

    “. . . when Dave takes off that lab coat and puts on the blog-xing gloves, all bets are off . . .”

    “. . . We can haggle with Dave all we want, but at the end of the day he cleans up with that marvelous Marvelous Marvin Hagler post . . .”
