"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 euphroia.
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 redeption of a true fighter in every sense.
