“It's not about how hard you can hit,” said Rocky Balboa. “It's about how hard you can get hit.” He and other famous movie boxers do quite a bit of both in this movie mashup of cinema’s most inspiring scenes in the ring. Sylvester Stallone, who will reprise his iconic role as Rocky in Creed, is well-represented, as is Robert De Niro, who took on Stallone in Grudge Match. They’re joined by other bloody, bruised fighters from big-screen boxing history, from The Set-Up to The Fighter.
