Vixens, remember when Usher was the finest man on TV? Well he’s coming back shirtless and sweaty with his upcoming depiction of Sugar Ray Leonard.

The Voice judge is officially confirmed to play Leonard in Hands of Stone about boxer Roberto Duran. The Grammy-winning singer will portray the legendary smooth feet, quick hands fighter. To play the part, Usher has to lose 25 more pounds before filming, which is slated to begin in October.
