Have you ever wondered what would happen if the boxers from Rocky and Raging Bull went up against each other? If so, you are (almost) in luck!
In Grudge Match, Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro step back into the ring one last time for the fans. The pair will portray retired Pittsburgh boxers, Henry “Razor” Sharp (Stallone) and Billy “The Kid” McDonnen (De Niro) who, for more than thirty years, have carried an unsettled grudge.
What caused this rift? The two were set to face-off for a title match when, unexpectedly, Razor chose to retire – the night before the big event! In the process, both of their careers were ruined and, until now, there was nothing that could be done to redeem themselves.
The aging boxers are presented with the opportunity of a lifetime – one last rematch in the ring. It sounds great but, soon enough, they quickly begin to realize that they aren’t as young as they were during their fighting days.
Grudge Match also stars Kevin Hart and Kim Basinger and hit theaters on Christmas.
