The actor, who has been working out at 2-week-old West Hollywood gym Unbreakable, was challenged in the ring by the Dallas Cowboys' Orlando Scandrick, while Hammer put on "Eye of the Tiger" to stir things up.

This story first appeared in the July 25 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

For his biopic role as the late boxer Arturo Gatti, Entourage's once-pudgy Turtle, Jerry Ferrara, has been hitting two-week-old West Hollywood gym Unbreakable five days a week to be trained by owner Jay Glazer, the Fox NFL Sunday correspondent known for working with football players in the off-season.

THR hears that the Cowboys' Orlando Scandrick challenged Ferrara in the ring in early July, and Armie Hammer, who is in near-daily prepping to be a soldier for Mine, put on "Eye of the Tiger" to stir things up.
