Sugar Ray Leonard may be among the biggest names in boxing, but 1980’s “Best Boxer of the Decade” says that one of his toughest battles actually took place outside the ring.

“There was a part of me that’s Ray Leonard, that’s a good man, that’s an honest man,” he says. “And there’s Sugar Ray Leonard, who is ego-driven, who’s a tough SOB in the ring, who had money, who had fame — and at some point, didn’t really appreciate it and took advantage of that.”
