Boxing icon Sugar Ray Leonard will give the keynote speech at the JCK show in Las Vegas later this spring, JCK has announced.

Leonard’s presentation, titled “The Power to Win!,” will be held on Saturday, June 1, at 8:30 a.m. in the San Polo Ballroom of the Venetian resort. Doors to the event open at 8 a.m.

“Sugar Ray Leonard is an enormously charismatic figure, and we are excited for him to share his powerful journey of what it took to reach his dreams of Olympic gold and get to the top of his  professional boxing career, and then transition from life as an athlete to a successful entrepreneur,” said Sarin Bachmann, group vice president for the RX jewelry portfolio and event leader for JCK, in the announcement. “We know all that attend will leave with renewed enthusiasm and a commitment to being the best. Thank you to Platinum Guild International for sponsoring this exciting keynote.”

In his JCK address, Leonard, a member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame, will dive into the universal principles of success and draw parallels between achievements in athletics and business.
