Old Skool Training Method: Marvin Hagler

World middleweight champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler perfects his form using that time honoured piece of equipment – the mirror.


Nowadays too many use the mirror to show off. That’s not what it’s for. It’s purpose is to help you to see how you look to the opponent! The mirror allows you to put yourself in the opponent’s shoes. If you can see holes in your movement you can bet your last dollar a smart foe will see them too.

Even after a couple of hundred years of boxing’s existence as an organised sport, the mirror remains a cheap and invaluable piece of equipment to any boxer – amateur or pro.
