An Olympic athlete and world champion boxer, Sugar Ray Leonard shows us how to set our fears of the unknown aside with preparation, focus, discipline, determination and attitude.
One of the most enthralling sports figures of modern times, Sugar Ray Leonard faced the difficulties of life head-on and then swept them aside. The secret of his triumphs in the ring and in business help audiences around the world beat the odds. Leonard took home Olympic gold and fought his way to world championships in five weight classes, a record still standing today. Voted “one of the top 25 athletes of the last 25 years” by ESPN, he is a successful entrepreneur who started his own sports promotion firm. With irrepressible charm and relentless drive, Leonard keeps audiences mesmerized with a high-energy presentation guaranteed to inspire a passion to be their best. In 2009, Leonard and his wife founded the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation to raise funds for research and awareness towards a cure for Type 1 Diabetes and to help children live healthier lives through diet and exercise. Leonard remains active in philanthropic efforts to benefit children’s charities and in promoting sustainable, healthy lifestyle habits. His autobiography, a New York Times best seller, is entitled The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring (June, 2011). He is played by Usher and the focus of the film, Hands of Stone, which was released in the United States in 2016.
