Usher has spoken about the training for his upcoming boxing movie Hands of Stone.
Posing for Men's Health magazine, the singer revealed that he has taken the preparation for playing Sugar Ray Leonard in the film very seriously.
He said: "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."
On his training regime, he said: "I train like an athlete every day, believe it or not. My second day I decided to ride to the gym. So I rode there. Boxed. Rode the bike back home.
"Mentally, I'm the type of person who can ignore the pain. Put it somewhere else and allow my body to just go there. But I always suffer. You can't box, ride a bike for 20 miles in the heat - »
