Usher Eyes Turn Towards Boxing Promoting

Usher has a confession…

 

He’d like to become a boxing promoter.

The Atlanta based singer was asked by TMZ if he’s interested in the sport after attending a pre-fight event for family friend Avery Sparrow, before his September 14th clash with Ryan Garcia.

The 40-year-old singer, who played Sugar Ray Leonard in a 2016 bio-pic on Roberto Duran, admitted he got bit by the boxing bug.

I’m obviously here for a reason,” Usher said of the sport. “Who knows? I may be bitten by the bug.”

Raymond commented that he greatly admires Al Haymon and Jay-Z, for their work in turning some boxers into major superstars, such as Floyd Mayweather and Deontay Wilder.
