This week you can meet two of the mechanical boxers from Hugh Jackman’s robot fighting movie Real Steel, opening Oct. 7.

“Atom” and “Noisy Boy” will hold a meet-and-greet 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in the main plaza at Chase Field, 401 E. Jefferson St., Phoenix. Plan on it being crowded, as the Diamondbacks will be hosting the Dodgers for a 6:40 p.m. game.

Jackman plays a washed-up boxer who lost his chance at a title when 2,000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring – but now he’s tired of being a promoter, and sets out with his son to build and train a champion. The movie also stars Lost alumna and Hobbit elf-in-waiting Evangeline Lilly.

Here’s a profile of the visiting boxer bots, courtesy of DreamWorks:

ATOM: Atom may not be the biggest or flashiest bot in the ring, but he is the most extraordinary. He is the “hero” robot, but his origins are less than prestigious. Most likely designed as a sparring bot, Ambush was found discarded in a junkyard. However, Atom has a programming feature that makes him special—a shadow function that allows him to mimic any boxing move.

NOISY BOY: Noisy Boy is a former league bot, created by world-famous robot designer Tak Mashido. When Noisy Boy started losing fights he was exiled to boxing exhibitions in South America and Asia. He’s now back but no longer league caliber, so he’s fighting in underworld venues. Noisy Boy’s World Boxing League stats list him as 1,120 Lbs., 8’5 1/2” tall, with a 38 mph max punch speed.
