    I have to feel it was a very, very intentional joke because of the team.

    Rocky Balboa was known as the Italian Stallion. What was Apollo Creed's ring nickname, at least in the first Rocky movie (which I re-watched last night)?

    Sidenote: The freaking cinematography in that movie is horrendous. Even my 11-year-old daughter made note of how many times a boxer's head snapped back when a punch clearly didn't land.

    Stallone apparently wrote out the fight blow-by-blow in the script. Video apparently exists of him and weathers speaking the parts as they film as in “I’m going to punch with a left hook, you dodge and come back with a body blow.”

    By Rocky IV, Creed apparently picked up a half-dozen other nicknames.
    Love "The Count of Monte Fisto."

    At the time of Rocky’s first fight with Apollo, what was his fighting record?

    Oh God, I used to know this. I think it was something like 42-20 with 38 knockouts or something like that.

    Here’s another Rocky question: What did he weigh at the time of his exhibition match with Thunderlips?
