Singer Usher (35) has grown an afro and has been building up a new physique for his role as boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the biopic “Hands Of Stone”. He dropped from 81kg to 66kg and rode his bike for 32km in the Georgia, US, heat. Talk about determination.

“My commitment to this character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him. The hair, the personality, the manner he conducts himself in – all that. He’s an incredible man,” he told Men’s Health.


His hard work is definitely paying off. He recently posted pics of his rock hard abs on Instagram and well, all we can say is, we like!

The R&B singer’s afro makes him look even younger and we can’t wait to see him in the boxing ring.

Usher will be starring alongside Robert De Niro, Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Édgar Ramírez.

“Hands Of Stone” is set to be released next year.
