HOLLAND Shore Amateur Boxing Club founder Graham Moughton took a trip down Memory Lane after being reunited with Sugar Ray Leonard.

The old foes faced each other 41 years ago, in an international bout at Madison Square Garden, in New York.

Leonard gained a close majority decision.

Since then, the pair have met on three other occasions and they came face-to-face again on Friday night, at a special Audience with Sugar Ray Leonard evening in Old Leigh.

“We spoke for 15 minutes,” said Moughton, who lives in Holland-on-Sea.

“It was great to see him again and this was the fourth time we’ve had a chance to chat, since our fight in 1973.
