Rocky Balboa, one of the greatest on-screen boxers of all time is back for one final bout with greatness in the upcoming movie "Rocky Balboa".
After five, count them five, incredible boxing movies, Sylvester Stallone is back in the ring to face his final foe.
Who was the best? Who was the greatest? (like we don't already know.)
As a aging and widowed restaurant owner, the two-time heavyweight boxing champion is pulled back into the limelight by an computer animated match between himself and the reigning champion, Mason Dixon.
That ol' familiar Rocky theme song is back (I never get tired of hearing it and it's a great first-thing-in-the-morning song to really start your day off pumped) and check out the flash of Stallone's six-pak abs at around 1:44 -- dang he is looking cut. Pretty amazing considering he's a couple candles past what would be an average man's prime.
The movie is set for release by Columbia pictures December 22, 2006. Watch the movie trailer:
The greatest underdog story of our time.
