Usher to Play Sugar Ray Leonard in Movie About Roberto Duran
There has always been ducking in Boxing, but a lot less in the past than there is now. Sugar Ray Leonard fought all the greats in their prime (even though he made Hagler wait and didn’t give him a rematch).
The matches between Leonard, Duran, Hearns and Hagler are legendary. I wish films were made about all four of them. Duran has a film chronicling his career and his tabbed R&B singer Usher to play Sugar Ray.
Usher is making his return to the big screen in a new film centered around Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán.
The 33-year-old singer will play Sugar Ray Leonard in Hands of Stone, scheduled to begin filming later this year. He will star alongside Robert De Niro and Gael García Bernal.
