When Usher compares boxing to dancing in his interview with Men's Health, we totally understand where he's coming from!
Both of them, in the hands of masters, look like an incredible art form — it just so happens one of them is also extremely violent too!
Usher is playing Sugar Ray Leonard in an upcoming biopic, and has been hard at work training! The thing that struck him the most, though (other than fists), was how similar boxing is to something so dear to him.
Here's what he said:
Phew! Our hearts finally started beating again.
Usher attempted to put us in a man muscle coma on Wednesday when he shared this pic of him working out.
Instead of it involving dancing, the singer got shirtless and sweaty for a hard-hitting boxing routine, with the caption:
Everyone knows one of the best ways to get a good workout going is to have a kickass playlist!
So if you have a bangin' bod like Brooke Burke, we're guessing you have some pretty good tunes to break a sweat to!
But in case you're having problems picking out the right songs, she was kind enough to share her personal "Booty Burn Playlist" to help us get started, and we have to say we're pretty impressed!
The cardio playlist includes classics like:
Nothing better than a handsome man doing good in the world!
Usher joined Sugar Ray Leonard at the 4th Annual Big Fighters, Big Cause Charity Fight Night, which benefits the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation. The foundation helps Juvenile Diabetes Research and The Wounded Warrior Project — both amazing causes!
Why was Usher there, other than wanting to help?
Looks like Usher has taken an interest in bikes!
You know what that means — probably designer Usher brand bicycles with like glitter and his name on them and stuff! We're sure they'll be super limited edition, so you'll want one right away! LOLz!
Or maybe he's just going for a bike ride… he's probably just going on a bike ride!
Either way, we'd rather have an Usher brand bike if you ask us! That way we could ride an Usher ALL DAY LONG!
Ha! Now if only Usher would teach Justin Bieber to ride one instead of driving recklessly, the roads would be MUCH safer!

As we previously mentioned, Usher's stepson was in a horrible jet ski accident and was left brain dead.
11-year-old Kyle Glover, son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond, is currently on life support with no brain activity.
Even though Usher's divorce was anything but smooth, he's still there for his ex-wife in this hardest time.
A source siad:
"The situation is terrible, the praying is plentiful and Usher is there for Kyle and is being an adult in the situation dealing with Tameka. He is separating things for the benefit and respect of Kyle. Usher is in contact and is nearby. He really is playing things close to his vest because there [are] still so many other emotions going on."
It's nice to know that even in this most awful time, at least Usher is there for his ex-wife.
We're sure she could really use someone to lean on right now.
Way to be a man, Usher.

We can't even BEGIN to imagine how devastating and scary this must be.
Tameka Foster's 11-year-old son, Kyle Glover, who is also the stepson of Usher, is in critical condition after being hit in the head with a jet ski while sitting in an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Georgia.
