    Marvelous Marvin Hagler was one of the best boxers the World has ever seen. I had the honour of watching him progress to World Class status and that man fought mean and hard and undeniably skilfully to achieve the very best in his division, he was an absolute gentleman and master of his craft. He will be remembered forever. My deepest condolences go to his family and friends. WHAT A MAN.
