Roberto Manos de Piedra” to the big screen


Compiled by the El Reportero’s staff

Latino Boxing Legend Roberto Duran challenges Donald Trump to get inside the ring with him and “see how strong he is.”

Defending his country and culture for over 50 years, Roberto “Manos de Piedra” Duran, who is considered a national treasure in Panama, said if he could get one person inside the boxing ring today, it would be Donald Trump. “To see how many Latin people he wants to deport, and see how strong he really is.” Duran further explained that his disrespect to the Latino community has become a cultural war and he would proudly do what he could to defend his people.

Duran was promoting the upcoming film HANDS OF STONE which opens later this month, starring Edgar Ramirez as Duran himself, Usher as his infamous rival Sugar Ray Leonard, and Robert De Niro as legendary boxing trainer Ray Arcel.
