Tonight was the first time this season that it was truly sad to see anyone go on Dancing With the Stars.

The nine contestants who performed last night all have offered something, be it talent, showmanship, backstage candor or pure aesthetics. But of course, one of them had to go (no silly saves on DWTS!) and, from this point on, the eliminations are going to leave a mark.

It was Sugar Ray Leonard who lost by decision on Tuesday.

The boxing champion was eliminated despite earning his personal-best marks from the judges and, with that, one of the show's most magnetic showmen has been put out into the Dancing pasture.

"I put up a good fight," Sugar Ray said in thanks, "and I will cherish this moment—great friends, great people, great show."

"It's been so much fun," added his partner, Anna Trebunskaya.
