If you think the action in today's robot boxing flick "Real Steel" is almost a little too real, there's a good reason for that: Sugar Ray Leonard.

The world champion boxing legend may be known mostly for his quick hands, but he's quickly making a name for himself in the cutthroat world of the movies as well -- and now in a new interview with PopSugar he's spilled the beans on exactly how he helped train Hugh Jackman for "Real Steel."

So what lessons did the one-time "Dancing With the Stars" contestant pass on to Jackman? And is there a reason Jackman's robot Atom bears more than a passing resemblance in the ring to the lightning-fast Leonard? Head over to PopSugar to find out. Just remember to keep your gloves high.
