[BG] Usher cast as boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in new biopic

Singer Usher Raymond has been cast as Sugar Ray Leonard in an upcoming bio-pic about Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran titled 'Hands of Stone', featuring Robert DeNiro as trainer, Ray Arcel.

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 inexplicably stopped the fight in the 7th round uttering famously, "No mas. No mas."

From reliable sources the filming begins later this year.
