Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone get into character and
practise their punches at Grudge Match premiere
Playing boxers is something these two know well, so it comes as no surprise that Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro couldn’t resist a quick bout on the red carpet.
The actors looked to be having a great time posing for photographers at the premiere of their latest movie, Grudge Match, in New York on Monday.
They play aging boxing rivals who get back into the ring for one last fight, but Stallone, 67, looked eager to prove he was the stronger competitor.

The former Rocky actor jokingly held his fist to his companion’s face as De Niro, 70, feigned a look of fear.
The stars where then seeing laughing away, before De Niro got his own back with a mock punch to the jaw.
Dressed in a tweed flat cap, the Silver Linings Playbook star looked fairly casual for the event in a blue polo shirt, navy blazer and grey trousers.

While Stallone opted for a dark suit and black jumper, before posing with fellow costar Kim Basinger who opted for masculine attire.
Wearing a tailored navy blue pin-striped suit to the event, the 60-year-old was a far cry from her feminine blonde bombshell image, but looked absolutely stunning.
The pair play two aging fighters returning for one match some thirty years after their last meeting, a fight that effectively finished their boxing careers.
