On May 26, 2005 Marvelous Marvin Hagler was invited to Argentina
for the KO Drugs Program. Every year this Event helps
to raise money for children, for the Hospital in Buenos Aires.
In same week, before the Charity Event,
Marvelous was invited to a Boxing Show organized by the WBA Federation.
The warm welcome in the Arena was unbelievable!!! Marvelous was called
in the ring so the fans could see the Champ, but.........unexpectedly
the WBA Vice President brought the Carlos Monzon Super Belt into the
ring, and honored the Marvelous One as the Best Middleweight Fighter
Ever. He is also the only one that was close to breaking the great
Carlos Manzon's record.
The picture shows Marvelous Marvin Hagler
in his Office, holding the Carlos Monzon Super Belt. It is an honor
for the Marvelous One, to receive such a beautiful gift and recognition
after 18 years out of the Boxing game. He is very proud to be the only
one in world to own this treasure.
Marvelous Marvin Hagler would like to
thank the WBA Federation, the Carlos Monzon Family, all the fans from
Argentina, and all the fans around the world.
