Sugar Ray Leonard KO'd on 'Dancing With the Stars'
By Paige Feigenbaum
The bell rang to end Sugar Ray Leonard's time in the "Dancing With the Stars" ring. He went out in the third round of eliminations, just behind Mike Catherwood and Wendy Williams.
The boxing legend humbly accepted being knocked out of the competition. He said, "I love the spirit of the show. I love the people of the show. I love what the show means and what the show represents and stands for. I will cherish this moment."
Pro partner Anna Trebunskaya was happy to get such a tough guy into tights. "A boxer became a ballet dancer!," she said.
It was a close call for two couples who have topped the scoreboard based on the judges' scores. Current toppers Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas and last week's high scorers Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin were not safe until the very end of Tuesday night's results episode.
The couples who breathed a sigh of relief return to the ballroom Monday night on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."
