In one of the most iconic fights in boxing history, Sugar Ray Leonard found a way to salute one of the game's most legendary figures.

One round before the bizarre finish to the No Mas bout in 1980, Leonard began clowning Roberto Duran. He dropped his guard. He faked a bolo punch. And he unleashed the Ali Shuffle.

"It's from Muhammad Ali -- without question," Leonard says. "I felt Muhammad. And I did it. And it worked, by the way."

Leonard was among the stars who gathered for the Los Angeles premiere of the HBO documentary "What's My Name | Muhammad Ali." The film airs for the first time May 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on HBO. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, it is a two-part production with the segments running consecutively.

"The first time I met Muhammad Ali was 1975 in Washington D.C.," Leonard says. "I presented him with the Touchdown Club award. We had a conversation, and that is totally priceless. I'll never forget the impact he had on me, the advice he gave me. Just being with someone who is that great ... Muhammad Ali is the only one that I've met that is of that magnitude. 

"If it wasn't for Muhammad Ali, there wouldn't be a Sugar Ray Leonard."
