Sugar Ray Leonard: I think champions should fight champions and unify the division, it’s more than just money, it’s bragging rights

There are very few fighters that fought in the ring and had an impact like former 5 division world champion Sugar Ray Leonard. He was the face of the sport and was involved in some of the biggest events the sport has seen, having fought and beat all-time greats Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler.

In this “On The Ropes” interview with Sugar Ray Leonard, he talks about how he got into the sport and discusses in detail some of the greatest moments from his boxing career. Leonard also speaks about some of the relationships he made in boxing and his thoughts on the sport today. Here is what Sugar Ray Leonard had to say.

JENNA J:Ray since your boxing career ended, you found another career, that being a motivational speaker. Why did you choose to get into that after you left the ring?

RAY LEONARD:Well, I’ve always really wanted to inspire people and motivate people. I got with some wonderful agents, Washington Speakers Bureau and I’ve been doing this for over twelve years. I always felt that everyone outside of the ring was a fighter because you know we get knocked down in relationships, business and what have you, we need a great corner or your staff. We need great motivation, determination, focus. All the things that we need, all the principles that we apply to become a world champion in every day life. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed telling my story of how I became successful.
