Marvin Hagler

My favorite boxer of all time has passed away at 66 years old.
Met the legend once at lincoln park ballroom where they used to hold amatuer boxing bouts. He was there to support one of the amateurs from the Petronelli brothers team from Brockton. Asked him for his autograph and he was engaging and friendly. RIP

Sad news for sure. He was my all time favorite. When I was a boy my uncle worked for a company in Stoughton as a long haul truck driver. I would travel with him when I was out of school for the summer. Hagler also worked there loading trucks. He was always a nice guy. Fast forward almost 40 years....he was living in New Hampshire for the last several years and I have a place up in Bartlett. He would come into the bar at Attitash and have dinner and a beer quite often. My wife and I have sat with him many times and chewed the fat. I was pleased to know he remembers me as the kid that went with his uncle. Very genuine guy. RIP.

Cool story there Hooked
In his prime..... and in person you could see he was an incredible physical specimen....same height and weight as I was at the time....except he was all muscle. He had an amazing record....67 fights with 52 KO's. He was robbed by the judges in a split decision when he fought the medias golden boy.....sugar ray leonard



In a pro boxing career spanning 14 years and 67 fights, Marvelous Marvin Hagler never was knocked down.

We ski Attitash quite a bit each year. I've had a place up there since 1998 and made good use of it while Jacob was growing up. This year he is away at college in New York, the wife and I didn't ski at all. My body is really feeling the construction trade this year. It was bitter sweet as I was dying to ski but it felt pretty good not nursing the pains.
