Usher is playing Sugar Ray Leonard in the upcoming “Hands of Stone” movie and the boxing champ is nothing but proud. HipHollywood caught up with the 58-year-old former boxer and he explained why Usher was the perfect fit to play him in the upcoming movie. “He has that thing, that thing that has no name — and thats that feel, that’s our rhythm, Usher has that,” Leonard told HipHollywood cameras. The movie “Hands of Stone” follows the story of Panamanian boxer Robert Duran, who fought two of the most legendary boxing matches of the 1980’s against Sugar Ray. To play the roll Usher had to drop from 180 pounds to Leonard’s fighting weight of 146 pounds, grow an afro, and go through an intense boxing workout regimen.

“He has 8-packs and I told him to take away two because I only had a six,” the boxing champion joked about Usher’s transformation. “He is an incredible student of the game of boxing.”
