In the upcoming film “Hands of Stone” audiences will get to see Usher Raymond star as Sugar Ray Leonard and there will be no doubt that the two legends share an undeniable resemblance.
Usher’s fancy footwork and his flawless physique made the R&B superstar a near perfect fit to play Leonard on the big screen.
“Hands of Stone” follows the life of Roberto Durán, who made his professional boxing debut in 1968 as a 16-year-old and retired in 2002 at age 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard to capture the WBC welterweight title but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in the November rematch, saying ‘no más’ (no more).
The film premiered at Cannes in May 2016 and is scheduled to be released on August 26, 2016 by the Weinstein Company.
