Roger Leonard, Older Brother of Sugar Ray, Writes New Book!
However, Roger Leonard says in his new book "In the Shadow of a Champ," that he was fighting two opponents -- one in the ring and another opponent, drugs. Roger Leonard is having two book signings in the area -- On Friday, June 22, Leonard will be at Prince George's Community College's Rennie Forum in the Largo Student Center, 301 Largo Road, Largo, MD from 6:30 PM to 9 PM. Then on Saturday, June 23, Leonard will be at the Stoney River Steaks restaurant in Annapolis Mall from 12:30 to 3 PM. Yes, Roger's younger brother, Ray, will be at both events!
In the interest of full disclosure, I've gotten to know Roger well over the years as we go to the same church. Roger has been sober for almost three decades and his story is one you will definitely want to read. It is truly inspiring!
Here is an interview with WJLA-TV about the book:
