Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone could co-star in a boxing film


When it comes to boxing films, there are few better than ‘Raging Bull’ or ‘Rocky’ out there. Stars Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone both did some of their finest work there, and now comes word that they both might be co-starring in another boxing flick. The Wrap is reporting here that they’ve got a project called ‘The Grudge’ in the works about two retired boxers who face each other one last time. After the jump I’ll rank my favorite boxing films, but for now…I’m excited about this one. It’s got the potential to be something real fun.

I’m actually one of those people who prefer ‘Rocky’ to ‘Raging Bull’, but I think they’re both brilliant. Here’s how I’d rank the 10 best films about boxing:

1. Rocky
2. Raging Bull
3. Million Dollar Baby
4. Rocky Balboa
5. The Fighter
6. Requiem for a Heavyweight
7. The Hammer
8. Somebody Up There Likes Me
9. Cinderella Man
10. The Hurricane
