'Marvelous' Marvin Hagler Is Dead at 66

Got a little more emotional than I would have expected when I learned of the death of Marvelous Marvin Hagler today -- partially because my brother Terence and I both had the same first reaction -- "Does Bill know?" -- our late brother Bill being the boxing aficionado of our family, with whom we tagged along to the Crowell Recreation Center in Detroit in the 1970s to "train." And also because Damian and I literally just watched the boxing champ on a "227" rerun a few days ago. No cause of death was released but goddamn it if it's Covid-19 again. RIP, Marvin. You were marvelous, indeed.

Jackee Harry held her own with the undisputed middleweight champion of 1980-87.
