When Sugar Ray Leonard visited Wales today to help promote the 20th title defense of WBO super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe against Peter Manfredo Jr., Leonard shocked the room when he announced that not only is he championing Manfredo's cause, but he will be training him as well! Calzaghe looked shocked, before dismissing the impact Leonard would have on Manfredo as neglible. However it remains something of a coup for Manfredo, who had suffered a major blow in the build up to the fight when it was announced that Freddie Roach would abandon him for Oscar De La Hoya.

no trainer in the world is going to be able to stop the inevitable result in this fight.

joe has said its because of the exposure manfredo gets in the u.s after the contender. i was expecting a bigger name from joe here but to be fair he's fighting stateside next and it looks like taylor.

Having him as a trainer at least makes the fight a little more exciting.
