Gold Medal boxing champion for the United States at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, named ‘Boxer of the Decade’ in the 1980s and the first professional boxer to win more than $100 million in purses, Sugar Ray Leonard is one of the wealthiest boxers in the world with an estimated net worth of $120 million. He has recently listed his beautiful Pacific Palisades Mansion for $46.5 million. The home was previously on the market in 2019 at $52 million.

Had it not been for his brother Roger, Sugar Ray would likely be just a regular guy named Ray Charles Leonard. However, Roger loved boxing so much he convinced his local recreation center in North Carolina to start a boxing program and goaded his brother, Ray, into taking it up as a sport. Little did Roger know that his brother would become one of the biggest names in boxing history.

Sugar Ray electrified the boxing world both as an ametuer in the Olympics and a pro in memorable fights against Roberto “No Más” Durán, Thomas “Hit Man” Hearns and Marvelous Marvin Hagler, finally retiring in 1997 after winning world championship titles in five different weight classes.

With his charismatic personality, Leonard has been a longtime boxing announcer for HBO, ESPN, ABC and NBC, a sought-after motivational speaker, made television commercials for Coca Cola, Ford and 7 Up, and has dabbled in acting.

His television appearances include Half & Half, L.A. Heat, Married with Children, Renegade and Tales From The Crypt. Ray has also appeared on the big screen in I Spy and The Fighter. As godfather to Khloé Kardashian, he has appeared in Keeping Up with the Kardashians numerous times. He also devotes much of his time to a number of charitable foundations, especially juvenile diabetes.

In 1993, Leonard purchased just under two acres of land in Pacific Palisades with ocean and canyon views and, in 1997, he and his wife, Bernadette, built their dream home. Measuring in at 16,773 square feet with seven bedrooms, it was designed with different wings having planned space for various types of entertaining from small intimate gatherings to full-blown fundraisers.

Built in the style of Italianesque old-world architecture, the exterior of the house is covered with ivy and the entrance opens into a grand foyer and center hall opening to the various formal rooms. Fireplaces throughout were imported from Europe and the stone floors from Jerusalem.
