For my money Sugar Ray Leonard (dancing partner: Anna Trebunskaya) is the biggest name on Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars. Even if you are not a boxing fan the odds are that you know the name Sugar Ray Leonard. His historic fights Roberto Duran, Marvin Hagler and Thomas Hearns were things of boxing lore and legend. He is one of the few athletes in the world to truly transcend his sport and become a huge, very well-known celebrity.

Dancing with the Stars has a long history of having athletes on it. Sugar Ray Leonard is one of three athletes in this season and while all of them are well suited for this type of competition I have a feeling Sugar Ray is going to excel. As a boxer he was known for his footwork and that is what dancing is all about. He is, however, 54 years old and the second oldest contestant on the show which might slow him down some. I guess we will get to see just how much dance the champ has left in him as he hits the floor with his partner Anna Trebunskaya.
