The Sugar Ray Leonard Roadshow Dinners – Manchester

  • September 17th: Emirates Old Trafford, Talbot Road, Old Trafford, Stretford, Manchester M16 0PX.

By most people's reckoning he is in the top two of the world's best ever boxers. And now, with the passing of Muhammad Ali, he is without debate the finest living boxer.

Who can forget the "Four Kings" throughout the 1980s, dominating the welterweight, middleweight and super-middleweight divisions? Roberto Duran, the late Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns. And the best of the lot. Sugar Ray Leonard.

Leonard fought and beat all of the others plus many more top fighters. He did it with style and panache and always with a smile. And along the way he won world titles in five different weight divisions, was named "Boxer of the Decade" in the 1980s and kept boxing high profile following the Ali era.

Now one of the greatest sportsmen of the 20th Century with one of the greatest names is coming to the UK and Ireland, courtesy of the Sporting Club.

Join Sugar Ray and, no doubt, some sporting celebrities, over a three course dinner and drinks, as the legend tells his remarkable story that delves much deeper than beating all the best boxers of his era. Sugar Ray will capture your hearts and minds as he takes us on his personal journey through an incredible life. 

We will also be raising funds for the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation and a number of UK-based children's charities.

So come and enjoy five unforgettable, once in a lifetime dinners, with one of the very greatest names in the history of sport.
