The man threatening to sue Sylvester Stallone over his Rocky movies has issued a new warning to the actor - he could destroy him in a boxing fight.

CHUCK WEPNER - the New York club fighter who wants money from Stallone for allegedly basing the boxing movies on his life story - has laughed at the possibility of settling the dispute in the ring, insisting the star is no match for him.

The 64-year-old says, "There is no long right arm of Sly Stallone - the guy's not even a fighter.

"So when people ask, 'Why don't you two just duke it out?' I just want to laugh."
