Usher has confirmed that he's set to play world champion boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in an upcoming boxing film called Hands Of Stone.
"I'm in preparation for a very incredible role," Usher told the BBC. "If you see me in the corners boxing, I'm doing that while working on this album."
"Leonard is a world champion in five different weight classes and is in the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He retired in 1997," The Washington Post reported.
The film, called Hands of Stone, will begin filming later this year. Usher will star opposite Robert De Niro and Gael García Bernal in the film, which tells the story of legendary Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán.
