The Sugar Man

Sugar Ray Leonard had the quickness, ability and charisma, and he filled the boxing void left when Muhammad Ali retired in 1981.  Leonard won the gold medal in the 1976 Olympics, and he won the welterweight crown in 1979, when he knocked out Wilfred Benitez.  Leonard was the Fighter of the Decade for the 1980s, winning world titles in five different weight classes.  He was one of the best finishers in boxing history.
