Gael Garcia Bernal to Play Boxing Legend Roberto Duran

Couch Potato Club:
Gael Garcia Bernal has been signed on to play five-time boxing champ Roberto Duran in Hands of Stone. Roberto Duran is one of the greatest boxers of all time. He boxed 1968 (age 16) till 2002 (age 50). In 1980, he beat Sugar Ray Leonard to win the welterweight title.

Hands of Stone (also Duran’s nickname) will center around that infamous match.
