Sugar Ray Leonard is quite simply one of the greatest fighters of the last fifty years. An artist and a showman he was always willing to take the difficult fight: his gruelling encounters with Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler have become legendary. Ruthlessly honest and inspiring, Ray's autobiography lets you get into the ring - with the mind games, brutality and euphoria. But, outside of the ring, Ray's biggest opponent of all was himself. From early domestic violence and experience of sexual abuse, he began a determined rise to Olympic champion and national icon, before losing control of his life at the height of his career in the blur of fame, sex, greed, drink and drug addiction that cost him so much. "The Big Fight" is a remarkable portrait of the rise, fall and final redemption of a true fighter in every sense.
About the Author
SUGAR RAY LEONARD won gold at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal and went on to win world titles in five different weight classes, defeating such rivals as Roberto Duran, Tommy Hearns and Marvin Hagler. Leonard lives in Calafornia with his wife, Bernadette, and their two children Camille and Daniel.
A brutally honest and inspiring story of one of the greatest legends in boxing.
"The intelligence and self-reflection that helped Sugar Ray become one of the greatest fighters of his generation have also stood him in good stead outside the arena."
-"The Boston Globe"
