FIGHT hero Ryan Rhodes is back in action next month but not in the boxing ring. His next showdown is against a WRESTLER!

And today it was announced that WWE all time great Bret 'The Hitman' Hart, regarded as Pele of the wrestling world, is coming out of retirement to watch the fight and meet fans at iceSheffield, on Saturday, July 11.

Rhodes, aged 32, who is also expected to fight for a boxing world crown later this year, has agreed to a Rocky-style boxer v wrestler grudge match against Scott Gallagher, following bad blood between the two.

Rhodes, a wrestling fan, was with family at ringside when Gallagher jumped over the ropes and squared up to him at a recent 1PW wrestling show, at Doncaster Dome.

Press the green play button to see our exclusive video coverage of the rumpus when the two came face to face and it all kicked off.

Johnny Nelson, the former WBO Cruiserweright world champ, and Kell Brook, the British welterweight, had to restrain pal Rhodes, who pushed the Scotsman away when banter got out of hand.

Rhodes, ranked eighth light middleweight in the world by the WBC, has been warned he could suffer serious injury in the wrestling ring and end his lifelong dream of a becoming a world champ boxer.

But today he confirmed that he has signed for the main event at Steel City Ice Rage: Total Meltdown. Tickets are now on sale - full details below.

Rhodes said: "I'm hoping they can make this a special world title fight. If it is I might be a wrestling world champ before I get a shot at the boxing title. But even if there's no belt at stake, my reputation is. Gallagher was disrespectful to me in front of my family and friends. He wants a fight he's got it. I'm not bothered that it's in the wrestling ring. I've not decided whether it will be gloves off, or on for me.

"I can't wrestle but I've been watching Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler. All I need now is my boxing fans and wrestling fans to cheer me on. Gallagher is the bad guy. It will be like the Rocky film when Stallone faced Hulk Hogan. But I'm planning not to be thrown out of the ring. Gallagher is no Hogan."

Rhodes said of Bret Hart's appearance: "I grew up watching him in the ring with Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Bill Goldberg and all the greats. I love wrestling. But I'm a boxer. So it will be the most unusual fight of my career. I don't think I'll be doing it again."

Hart, a WWE seven times world champion, is known as "The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be". He will fly in from Canada to hold the winner's hand aloft. He will also take part in a rare Q&A fan meet and greet, signings and instant photographs, before the show.

1PW, the new established big name in British wrestling, will mark its Sheffield debut in asociation with LGI Enterprises - with a line-up of other WWE, TNA and Ring Of Honour superstar names on the bill, including ROH Champion Jerry Lynn, ex WWE star Colt Cabana and TNA giant, The Masked Monster Abyss. "The Vigilante" Johnny Moss, Kevin Thorne, Doug Williams, Martin Stone, Project Ego, Pac and Rockstar Spud are due to appear. Line up is subject to change


Must be desperate for the money, just when his career was looking up aswell

No disrespect but I bet this as all been staged from the word go. Why would Rhodes consider going in a ring when he as no experience and if he lands awkward he could end up in a wheelchair. Floyd Mayweather Jr against Big Show was a success and Floyd had to do 10 weeks training in a training camp with Al Snow and a few others before he could go in the ring.

I would hope so, otherwise Rhodes is a complete tit.

The only guy named Rhodes I can see fighting Bret 'The Hitman' Hart nowadays would be Dusty Rhodes. Just think, if Ricky ever did this (perish the thought), it would be Hitman vs Hitman.

I actually followed the old WWWF wrestling as a kid back in the 70's. Everyone talking about Cotto's popularity with the Puerto Rican community and him being a huge draw at Madison Sq Garden got me thinking back to 25 years ago when Puerto Rican wrestler Pedro Morales used to have huge following among New York's Puerto Ricans and fill up Madison Sq Garden on a regular basis with just as enthusiastic a crowd as Cotto's. Being from the Boston area, I used watch Pedro fight 'the Gahden' all the time. Any other old time wrestling fans here?

The way that the interview was held tells me that it was staged. The way Nelson and Brook were standing behind and all seemingly in matching clothing.  I hope it wasn't staged as i would not like to see such dramatics come into boxing in the way that wrestling is carried out.
