Hagler confirmed it in a statement published on social networks. The woman did not reveal the cause of death but explained the death of Hagler, considered one of the best boxers in history, was "unexpected." Because of this, in El Futbolero we decided to compare the fortune he earned along his extensive and successful career with other mega sports icons such as Floyd Mayweather or Cristiano Ronaldo.

The fighter appeared in action films, later became a commentator on British television and is currently a guest of honor at sporting events. His estimated fortune is $45 million.
When it comes to Floyd Maywheather, the welterweight champion remains at the top despite the lawsuits and debts he registers such as the litigation imposed by the mother of his three children, Josie Harris, for 20 million dollars.
