Marvelous Marvin Hagler’s wife has refuted a claim that her husband died because of a reaction to the Covid-19 vaccine.
The former undisputed middleweight champion passed away on Saturday aged 66, which has been described as “unexpected”.
Reports have since emerged, though, that the boxing legend suffered from side effects after receiving a vaccine for coronavirus.
But Kay, who has been married to Hagler since 2000, has released a statement shutting down those claims.
Writing on a fan club’s Facebook page for Hagler, his wife said: “I would like to speak with my heart to all of you. I apologize if my English is not written correctly but I hope everyone understands me in this difficult moment.
“After 31 years the love of my life is gone and my life without him no longer makes sense, but I can feel him next to me even now and he's telling me not to give up and be strong for him.
“Thank you for your love, he loved people so much, he loved you all he was happy when he read your comments he was a special person the most beautiful person I had ever met in all my life.
“I was the only person close to him until the last minute, and I am the only person that know how things went not even his family know all the details and I do NOT accept to read some stupid comment without knowing really what happen.
“For sure wasn't the vaccine that caused his death . My baby left in peace with his usually smile and now is not the time to talk nonsense.

“Marvin hated funerals and therefore there will be no funerals or church celebrations he wants to be remembered with a happy smile but I would be happy if each of you can light a candle for him.
“However there is something special that I will do because it was his wishes and you will be informed at the right time by me I just need time. Thank you all for your love, Kay G. Hagler.”
