How awesome would it be to witness Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone competing against each other in the boxing ring; starring the two actors, Grudge Match centres on Kid (De Niro) and Razor (Stallone), two aging boxers who come out of their retirement to fight one final bout, 30 years after their last match!
In a recent video interview, Robert De Niro says, ‘Boxing is a tough sport and I am just doing it as an actor. Sylvester has done like five or six movies and he is really into it and has got much more experience...We worked very well together.’
Speaking about his character, Robert De Niro says, ‘It’s a second chance for my character Kid to become what he has always wanted and waited years for, to have this final bout and see who is really gonna come out on top.’
Even Sylvester Stallone’s interview for the film has been released where he expresses his love for boxing. ‘I love the metaphor about it, I like the fact that it is real classicism where you break it down into man’s athletic ability and then couple it with his courage,’ says the ageless actor.
