Leonard and Duran were two of the biggest names in the boxing world during the 1980s.  Leonard became a national hero after bringing home gold for America in the 1976 Summer Olympics.  The win led to Leonard earning a number of sponsorship deals for himself. But for years, the words “No mas” would echo in both fighters’ ears until Leonard traveled to Panama in the search for closure between the two men.
