A History of Athlete Name Changes

Marvin Hagler to Marvelous Marvin Hagler

Sport: Boxing
Year: 1982

Throughout his boxing career, Marvin Hagler was referred to as "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler. Pretty cool, huh? But whenever the media talked to him, they would only call him by his government name. A little ticked by the reference, Marvin officially made Marvelous his first name. We're making plans to swap our middle name for "Awesome" in the coming weeks.
