Boxing Legend Heads To Huddersfield

HERO: Sugar Ray Leonard

ONE OF the greatest boxers of all time is visiting Hudders- field for an event that promises to pack a punch.
A sporting dinner with America’s Sugar Ray Leonard will take place on Wednesday, November 30, at the Cedar Court Hotel at Ainley Top.

The delighted organiser of the event, James Beattie, said: “We have worked hard to secure a sell-out name in Sugar Ray Leonard.

“Personally, he is my all time favourite boxer, and this dinner represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear Sugar Ray talk about his career in depth. There will also be the opportunity for a meet and greet as part of the evening.”

Regarded as one of the greatest fighters who ever wrote his name into the boxing history books, he won an Olympic gold medal before turning professional. He then won the WBC world welterweight title with a 15th round knockout of Wilfred Benitez.

Sugar, now aged 60 and living in North Carolina, then went on to win belts in multiple weight classes. He became best known for his high-profile bouts with Roberto Duran, Marvin Hagler and Thomas Hearns, and the fights are remembered as the last great era of Championship Boxing.

All guests will enjoy a three-course meal and live music. The event will also include fundraising for the Kirklees Mayor’s Charity, the Royal British Legion.
