De Niro and Stallone to square up

Robert De Niro is set to meet Sylvester Stallone in the boxing ring

Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone are set to do battle in the boxing ring in new movie Grudge Match.

The stars of Raging Bull and Rocky will play two retired fighters persuaded to step back into the ring for one last match, it has been confirmed, after Deadline first reported the news last week.

The fight promoter who makes it all happen will be played by Kevin Hart and the film will be directed by Peter Segal for Warner Bros.

Stallone, 66, recently showed off his physical fitness in The Expendables 2 but De Niro, 69, said earlier this year he didn't think he would ever regain the physique he had when he starred in boxing film Raging Bull.

The meeting between these stars of two boxing classics is set to be the ultimate on-screen fight.
