The pair prepare in binary fashion. The Soviet boxer uses high-tech machinery to gear himself for the American, who trains in snowy conditions, throwing logs and chopping down trees in an epic training montage.

They eventually fight, trading leather in a thrilling back-and-forth exchange with Rocky ultimately knocking out Drago in dramatic fashion in the final round.
