Retired boxer "Sugar" Ray Leonard has been a National Golden Gloves champion, an Olympic champion, and a world champion in five different weight divisions. By any standard, his ring career was superlative: This International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee was the first pugilist in history to win purses of $100 million. As this poignant memoir shows, however, his life outside the squared circle was often unfulfilling and plagued by problems. In The Big Fight, Leonard writes not only about his matches with Hagler, Duran, Hearns, and Benitez; but also about his personal bouts with depression, alcohol and drug addiction, rage, and greed. This is a powerful book that deserves a crossover audience.
