The passing of boxing great “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler has stirred up a lot of controversy after the Boxing Hall of Fame legend’s official website reported that Hagler was “fighting the after effects of the vaccine” hours before the former middleweight champion passed away.
Another boxing champ, Thomas “Hitman” Hearns, posted some information on his Instagram page about Hagler and his recent vaccination, which Hearns claims was directly related to Hagler’s impending passing.
Within hours of the above post, Hagler’s wife Kay Hagler revealed her husband’s passing but did not reveal the cause of death. “I am sorry to make a very sad announcement. Today unfortunately my beloved husband Marvelous Marvin passed away unexpectedly at his home here in New Hampshire. Our family requests that you respect our privacy during this difficult time,” she wrote on social media.
Hearns has since tried to clarified his post, stating, “Allow us to have our peace. Our love and respect to Marvin and his family, this is not an anti vaccine campaign … It’s outrageous to have that in mind during the passing of a King, Legend, Father, Husband and so much more.”
There are many people, especially within the urban community, who have rejected the notion of the necessity of the COVID-19 vaccine and the passing of greats such as Hagler has made establishing the safety of the vaccine that much harder for big pharma.
