In addition to the heavyweight championship bout between Larry Holmes and Earnie Shavers, delayed earlier by an injury to Holmes, explosive Sugar Ray Leonard, undefeated in 24 pro starts, takes on seventh-ranked welterweight Andy (The Hawk) Price. The third fight pits exciting lightweight Roberto Duran versus Zeferino Gonzales. It is an evening that recalls the glory of the 1950s' Gillette Cavalcade of Sports.
