“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,” she wrote.

“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,” she wrote. “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.”
The speculation over Marvin Hagler’s death started after Hearns wrote on Instagram that his friend was in the ICU after feeling the aftereffects of the vaccine. Hearns’ post has since been deleted.
