While carving up opponents, few boxers carved out a legacy like Sugar Ray Leonard. For years, Leonard dazzled crowds with fancy footwork and fists of fury. “I wanted to be champion. I wanted to be special. I think the challenges were always there. It was me against you," Leonard said. His duels with the likes of Roberto Durán, Thomas Hearns, and Marvelous Marvin Hagler are the stuff of legend. “I worked so hard and I trained so hard. I’ve always been optimistic. Always," he said.
