Usher who will be playing Sugar Ray Leonard and Edgar Ramirez playing the likes of Robert Duran are duking it out in the new trailer for the Martin Scorcese film Hands of Stone.
According to Deadline:
Hands of Stone follows the rise of Duran from the El Chorrillo slums to becoming the Welterweight Champion of the World in “The Brawl in Montreal” on June 20, 1980, beating the then-undefeated Sugar Ray Leonard. The fought in Olympic Stadium, the same place where Leonard won an Olympic gold medal during the 1976 Summer Games. Following the fight, Leonard realized Duran’s clever psychological tactics, and a rematch was organized for five months later, with Duran set to make $8M. Following his title, Duran went on a wild celebration binge, and only had three months to get himself in shape. During the eighth round of the rematch, after Leonard’s taunting and change-up in footwork, Duran quit the fight, infamously declaring, “No mas.”
Hands Of Stone premieres in theaters August 26th, but watch them duke it out below:
