Back in the 1980s, Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, were the two biggest boxers in Pittsburgh. They shared a fierce rivalry that drew nationwide attention as they competed for the championship. Each had scored a victory against the other in two matches, but Razor abruptly announced his retirement without explanation on the eve of the 1983 decisive third match, effectively ruining both boxers’ careers. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr. tries to get the two aging rivals out of retirement and back in the ring so the two can finally settle the score once and for all. On The Kid and Razor’s first encounter after all these years, their long-festering feud leads to tempers flaring that erupt in an unintentional bout which instantly goes viral. As social media turns their local grudge match to a highly anticipated HBO event, both commit to intensive training to see who still has the punch to deliver the knock-out blow.

The DVD special features include deleted scenes. Exclusive to Blu-ray are an alternate opening, alternate endings with an introduction by Peter Segal and several featurettes: “The Bull & The Stallion,” “In the Ring with Kevin Hart,” “Ringside with Tyson & Holyfield,” “Blow for Blow with Larry Holmes” and “Kevin Hart Unedited.”
