Sugar Ray Leonard Drops Sex Abuse Shocker
In his autobiography, The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring, due to be released next month, boxer Sugar Ray Leonard revealed that he was sexually abused as a young fighter by a “prominent Olympic boxing coach” he left nameless. This is the first time Leonard, who turned 55 Tuesday, has ever revealed this publically. He says he’ll speak out more about incidents after the book is released in June, the New York Times reports.
