Epic Video Shows How Stallone And Weathers Choreographed The Rocky-Creed Fight

It wouldn't be surprising if a non-boxing fan thought Rocky Balboa was a real-life boxer. It's only a testament to how influential Sylvester Stallone was on the big screen as the character, with the franchise still producing films to this date.

It's time, though, for a trip down memory lane with some rare behind-the-scenes footage from the first film.

That's right, it's Stallone choreographing the big fight in the 1976 film with Carl Weathers, who played the heavyweight champion Apollo Creed.

Awesome video, right?

Anyone who has watched the film remembers how surreal the fight between Rocky and Creed was in the film -- that's not to mention the epic training montage of The Italian Stallion preparing for his big showdown.

Rocky proved to be both a commercial and critical success, leading to a further five sequels and a spin-off sequel in Creed.

Stallone will once again be returning as Rocky for Creed II, with the actor also penning the script.

Creed II is slated for release on November 21.
