"There was a part of me that's Ray Leonard -- that's a good man, that's an honest man -- and then there's Sugar Ray Leonard, who is ego-driven, who is a tough S.O.B. in the ring, who had money, who had fame and at some point didn't really appreciate it and took advantage of that," Leonard says.
During his prime in the 1980s, Leonard won world titles in multiple weight divisions and was named "Boxer of the Decade," but behind the accolades, one of the world's greatest athletes was troubled by substance abuse, infidelity and the emotional damage from a childhood molestation, as detailed in his 2011 memoir, The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring.
"My first wife, Juanita, she always said, 'You're two different people,'" Leonard continues. "I used to get angry about that and go have a drink. Then when my present wife, Bernadette, said to me, 'There are two of you,' I knew there was a problem."
