“Two retired boxers (Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro) decide to settle a long-standing beef by heading back into the ring in this sports comedy from director Peter Segal. Back in the day, Billy McDonnen (Robert De Niro) aka ‘The Kid’ and Henry Sharp (Stallone) aka ‘Razor’ were the two biggest bruisers in the Pittsburgh boxing scene. Their fierce rivalry drawing nationwide attention, Razor and The Kid were deadlocked for victory when the former announced his retirement just before the decisive 1983 match that would have declared the supreme champion. Three decades later, enterprising boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr. (Kevin Hart) lures the two aging pugilists back into the ring for the fight that everyone has been waiting for. Meanwhile, when Razor and The Kid see each other for the first time in 30 years, the cameras are rolling when tempers flare. In no time that unscheduled scuffle goes viral, prompting both fighters to resume their intensive training in a bid to deliver the knock-out blow during the highly-anticipated match.”
