Hands of Stone follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter and one of the greatest boxers in the history of the sport, who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year‐old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50.
In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, famously saying the words “no mas” (no more.)
Hands of Stone is produced by Jay Weisleder, Carlos Garcia de Paredes, Claudine Jakubowicz and Jonathan Jakubowicz.
The Weinstein Company will release the movie on August 26.
