R&B crooner Usher Raymond is definitely getting into his role as boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard for the upcoming movie “Hands of Stone.” In pictures that were released, the There Goes My Baby singer showed off his new physique that’s 30 pounds lighter and of course the afro.

He opened up about the role with Men’s Health Magazine and said, “My commitment to this character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him,” he says. “The hair, the personality, the manner he conducts himself in—all that. He’s an incredible man.”
