Sylvester Stallone had a "wonderful" time punching Dolph Lundgren in the face for Creed II.

The actor was reunited with his nemesis from boxing movie Rocky IV – in which Stallone portrayed all-American boxing hero Rocky Balboa taking on Russian hardman Ivan Drago, played by the Swedish actor - and he recently enjoyed meeting him again for his latest movie.

Talking about his film franchise, Stallone exclusively told RadarOnline: "Rocky IV was the most popular of the original series. Dolph Lundgren, the villain, became a cult hero.

"I thought wouldn't it be great to bring it back 30-years later, but his son is the one who's going to wreak havoc.

"He's literally raised his son in a culture of hatred, like some societies do. They take their children and turn them into weapons.

"It has some nice twists and turns from it – and I get to punch Dolph in the face again, which is wonderful."

Rocky IV also starred Stallone's then-wife Bridgette Nielsen, who played the girlfriend of Drago in the movie, and who recently gave birth at 54!

In Creed II Stallone plays Rocky, who is trainer to Adonis Creed, son of his old sparring partner, who goes on to take on Dragos' son Viktor Drago. The movie is released on November 21.
