Thank you so much for the incredible response to last week's interview with sports journalist Jerry Izenberg. This week we decided to keep the boxing train rolling with a special encore presentation of our iTunes-featured interview with boxing icon Sugar Ray Leonard which originally aired in January 2016. We will be back next week with BRAND NEW episode!
All-time boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard joins the guys in this show for a RARE, extended interview that goes into amazing detail about his storied career, and brings us up to date on his life today. During his twenty-year professional career, Ray won world titles in the welterweight, junior middleweight, middleweight, super middleweight, and light heavyweight divisions. He was the FIRST boxer to win world titles in five different weight classes! And in doing so, he defeated some of the toughest boxers of his era, including Roberto Duran, Wilfred Benitez, Thomas Hearns, and Marvin Hagler. Ray’s fights were some of the most historic and dramatic fights in history.
In this interview, Ray is extraordinarily candid, revealing surprising information about his life and career. He also talks about “The Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation”, and its’ efforts to help fund research to battle childhood type 1 and 2 diabetes, and to help children lead healthier lives.
Also on this show: a NEW edition of “What Were They Thinking?”, featuring TERRIBLE music by some of your favorite stars!
