Justin Trudeau
Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was once beaten up by Chandler

Muhammad Ali v Joe Frazier, Mayweather v Pacquiao, Holyfield v Tyson are just a few bouts that have gone down in boxing history. Despite Matthew Perry's recent admission that he once beat up Justin Trudeau, The Friends actor won't be getting into a ring with the Canadian PM any time soon.

The 47-year-old star has turned down the chance to take on the charismatic politician after some fighting Twitter talk from Trudeau on 1 April.

"I've been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn't wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?" Trudeau wrote on Twitter.

Although it was clearly an April Fool's joke, Perry wanted it make it clear that he has moved on from their playground rivalry and doesn't fancy his chances with the former professional wrestler now.

"I think I will pass at your request for a rematch kind sir (given that you currently have an army at your disposal)", Perry tweeted back.

Back in March, during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, Perry revealed they were school adversaries and that he bullied Trudeau when they attended Ottawa's Rockcliffe Park Public School

"My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau," Perry explained. "We both beat him up. I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't – so it was pure jealousy."

Perry added that, although he wasn't proud of his actions as a "stupid kid", he believed he was instrumental in deciding Trudeau's future career. "I think he said 'I'm going to rise above this and become prime minister'. He rose above both of us."
