Donny Lalonde vs Sugar Ray Leonard
WBC light heavyweight title
WBC super middleweight title
Las Vegas, Nevada
Donny Lalonde had recently won the WBC 175lb strap defending it once before matching up with Leonard. Leonard, having not fought for 19 months, was coming in to challenge Lalonde for his belt as well as the inaugral WBC 168lb title. Lalonde, not wanting to miss out on an opportunity to fight a legend, agreed to meet at a 167lb catchweight for both belts. Great match albeit under controversial circumstances. Enjoy!
