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:

"What he did as a boxer is no different from what I do as a dancer. 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."

Except for all the hitting! LOLz!

Usher actually spent a ton of time and effort to get into character, so we can't wait to see glimpses of his performance!

Also, we'll be really disappointed if there's no song and dance number at the end of the credits… soooooo get on that!
