Grudge Match Exclusive Interview With Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone & Peter Segal

De Niro and Stallone play Billy 'The Kid' McDonnen and Henry 'Razor' Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Thirty years later, they're planning to re-enter the ring and settle the score.

De Niro and Stallone play Billy 'The Kid' McDonnen and Henry 'Razor' Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can't refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all. But they may not have to wait that long: on their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral. The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event. Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again.

Synopsis

Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone star in this comedy about two retired boxers returning to the ring for one last fight. 30 years ago, Billy 'The Kid' McDonnen (De Niro) and Henry 'Razor' Sharp (Stallone) were boxing rivals but Razor decided to leave the ring for good the night before they were due to battle it out for the championship, which ultimately put an end to both their careers. With each of them having achieved a win in their previous two matches, the pair now have the opportunity to face each other a third and final time.
