ROUGH CUT (NO NARRATION) They may be known for playing prominent boxers individually on screen, but for "Grudge Match" actors Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro have teamed up to play rival boxers in their sixties trying resolve their differences with one final boxing fight. To promote the movie, the pair turned out in London alongside several celebrated boxers for a sports-themed news conference on Thursday (January 9). The film shows how the two ageing boxers become viral internet sensations after their constant quarrels are caught on camera-phones. Stallone himself has fallen victim to the internet, after having a public spat on Twitter with his 'The Expendables' co-star Bruce Willis. Without the use of social media, Stallone nearly got himself into trouble at the news conference by stating "real guys don't dance" when asked if he'd do a film about dancing. A few minutes later, the actor took to the microphone to apologise for his faux-pas. "Grudge Match", which also stars Kim Basinger, goes on release in the UK on January 24.
