Edgar Ramirez, Robert De Niro in “Hands of Stone” boxing bio 1st pic

PanARMENIAN.Net - First image from Jonathan Jakubowicz’s boxing biopic Hands of Stone was posted on Collider entertainment news outlet.

According to Collider, the film stars Edgar Ramirez (Carlos) as Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran, who won 103 of 119 contests against such top-tier talent such as Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns, Marvin Hagler, Hector Camacho and Vinny Pazienza. Duran might be most remembered for the infamous fight against Leonard in which Duran called out, “No mas!” in order to quit the fight prematurely.

Robert De Niro co-stars as Duran’s trainer, Ray Arcel.

Hands of Stone also stars Ruben Blades, Ellen Barkin, and John Turturro.
