"Hands of Stone" recreates Roberto Duran's life punch by punch


Hands of Stone, the biographical film about the panamanian boxer Roberto Durán, has started its footage with an spectacular take implying dozens of extras to recreate a student riot that took place 50 years ago. The film follows the life of Roberto Durán, who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16-year-old and retired in 2002 at his fifties. In June 1980 he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard to capture the WBC welterweight title but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in the November rematch, saying "no más" (no more).
