FORMER Olympic gold medallist (Montreal 1976) and then unbeaten professional welterweight Sugar Ray Leonard stopped compatriot Floyd Mayweather in the 10th and last round to register his 14th successive professional win on September 9, 1978 at Providence, Rhode Island’s Civic Center.

Leonard started cautiously before putting an impressive range of punches together. Mayweather was down twice in the eighth before a left hook to the chin finished the fight in the 10th.
