An Olympic hero and a world champion in five weight divisions, Sugar Ray Leonard achieved phenomenal boxing success despite also having to fight depression, bouts of rage and drug addiction. In 'The Big Fight', Leonard explains how he came to terms with the contradictions that tormented him.

'To be legendary you got to have heart . . . Ray's heart was bigger than all the rest' - Muhammad Ali.

Sugar Ray Leonard was one of the greatest boxers ever. An artist and a showman he was always willing to take the difficult fight: his gruelling encounters with Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler have become legendary.

Ray's autobiography takes you into the ring - with the mind games, brutality and euphoria. But, outside of the ring, Ray's biggest opponent was himself. From early domestic violence and sexual abuse to a blur of fame, sex, greed, drink and drug addiction at the height of his career that cost him so much, The Big Fight is a remarkable portrait of the rise, fall and final redemption of a true fighter in every sense.
