Usher to Play Sugar Ray Leonard

Singer Usher, has been cast to play boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in a new film.  The bio-pic, ‘Hands of Stone’ is about Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran.

 In June 1980 Roberto Duran took the WBC Welterweight title from Sugar Ray in a 15-round unanimous decision.
At the rematch in November Roberto stopped the fight in the 7th round uttering, “No mas. No mas.”
‘Hands of Stone’ begins filming later this year. Source

This is a good look for Usher.  Let’s hope he’s been going to acting class since ‘Turn It Up.’
