'Sugar' Ray Leonard steps back into the ring to help Hugh Jackman in 'Real Steel'

"Sugar" Ray Leonard is making another comeback, but this time it's in the movie ring.

Leonard worked as boxing consultant for Hugh Jackman in the new movie, "Real Steel." Leonard says he had to teach Jackman to "detach himself" from his actor self to be able to play the robot boxer. He put styles from all different boxers into the 'life' of these robots. Leonard says it 'all came together' and its a great movie that everyone will like.

"Sugar" Ray Leonard talks with Ali Velshi on American Morning about the process of making this movie.
