The Ali Shuffle vs. Duran

    One round before the bizarre finish to the No Mas bout in 1980, Leonard unleashed the Ali Shuffle. "It's from Muhammad Ali -- without question," Leonard says. "I felt Muhammad. And I did it. And it worked, by the way."

    “The first time I met Muhammad Ali was 1975 in Washington D.C.,” Leonard says. “I presented him with the Touchdown Club award. We had a conversation, and that is totally priceless. I’ll never forget the impact he had on me, the advice he gave me. Just being with someone who is that great … Muhammad Ali is the only one that I’ve met that is of that magnitude. 

    “If it wasn’t for Muhammad Ali, there wouldn’t be a Sugar Ray Leonard.”
