One of the greatest boxers of all time is coming to Mansfield — and we have got two tickets to give away to what promises to be a knockout night.

An Evening With Sugar Ray Leonard will be held at the newly-named and newly-refurbished Civic Quarter within Mansfield Civic Centre.

Leonard, who was the first to win world titles in five weight divisions and was named Boxer of the Decade in the 1980s, will spend the evening meeting, greeting and entertaining fans.

The event, on 2nd December, has been put together by HS Presents, which has brought sporting superstars to the area in 2016, including 1966 World Cup final hat-trick hero Sir Geoff Hurst.

HS Presents partner Laura Hemmings said: “We have been trying to get Sugar Ray Leonard for absolutely ages and now all the hard work has paid off.

“We are completely humbled that he said yes. Together we will put on the show of a lifetime.”

Leonard tweeted about coming to Mansfield: “I can’t wait to greet my boxing fans in the UK. See you soon.”

Now a motivational speaker and occasional actor, Leonard was one of “The Fabulous Four” boxers — also including Roberto Durán, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler — who fought each other throughout the 1980s.

Leonard, who won world titles at middleweight, welterweight, light middleweight, super middleweight, and light heavyweight divisions, was also the first boxer to earn more than $100m in purses. Before his highly successful professional career, he was a leading amateur, winning Olympic gold in 1976.

Also coming to the event is Tamer Hassan, a Hollywood movie star from The Business and The Football Factory. We have teamed up with HS Presents to offer two GOLD tickets to this celebrity dinner as prizes in this easy-to-enter competition. To enter, simply answer the following question:

At how many weights did Sugar Ray Leonard win world titles?
