Nancy,

Thanks for your comment. I noticed that earlier today, too, but check just about every other source, and you'll see Wilmington listed. In fact, there's a Sugar Ray Leonard Lane over off Dawson Street in Wilmington in his honor.

The thing about Wikipedia is that even though it's a great resource, it's often wrong, in large part because anyone can edit the information. I have found Rocky Mount from one other reputable source, so I'm not sure why the confusion, but I've always learned he hailed from the Port City!

Thanks
