Eighteen years after capturing Sugar Ray Leonard and Tommy "the Hitman" Hearns doing battle in 1987, prints of my 1991 painting were once again in demand. A recent boxing event was held at the Pala Resort and Casino. Both Sugar Ray Leonard and Tommy Hearns were in attendance. After being contacted through our website by a U.S. Army Lieutenant (and boxing afficianado) from Washington D.C., I arranged for several prints to be delivered to the event. It was a win - win for everyone, including me. The Lieutenant arranged for several prints to be signed by the celebrities. Sugar Ray took home a print to present to his oldest son, and I even walked away with both legendary autographs.
