Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Roberto Duran 1980 ticket stub (PSA). On June 20, 1980, Roberto Duran won the WBC welterweight title by defeating Sugar Ray Leonard by unanimous decision in 15 hard-fought rounds. The fight took place at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal. Duran entered the bout 71-1 after a long career at the lightweight division. Duran moved up to the welterweight division after he vacated his WBC and WBA lightweight titles in 1978. Known as “The Brawl in Montreal,” the fight garnered much hype. This was Leonard’s first fight back in Montreal since he won his Olympic gold medal in 1976. His flashy personality and marketability had already made him a household name. Leonard won his WBC title belt after knocking Wilfred Benitez out in November 1979, and he defended it against Dave Green with a fourth-round KO in March 1980. Duran, nicknamed “Hands of Stone,” developed a reputation as a dynamic, knockout puncher at the lightweight division. He unified the WBA and WBC titles at the lightweight in 1978 after knocking out WBC champ Esteban De Jesús. Duran vacated the titles the next year to move up to welterweight. During the pre-fight press conference, Duran repeatedly insulted Leonard to get under his skin. This prompted Leonard to tell the media he would “kill” Duran during their fight.
