I love Roger! And this is what ruined boxing! That shit right there, Rocky movies. That is not boxing it is street fighting with gloves. I hate all Rocky movies and why did Sly Stone get inducted to the Boxing Hall of Fame? BULLSHIT! The movie is going to be based off of Apollo Creed's grandson.

I don't see how anyone could be a fan of boxing and not love the Rocky series, for better or worse it brought attention and new fans to the sport. I like the actor whose supposed to be playing the lead character. I'm definitely checking it out

And speaking of dude, get yall assessment out and go see Fruitvale station you sellouts lol

I don't imagine anyone of the future 24/7's or the all access episodes surpassing that one. The trash talking was epic. I thought Hatton would just sweep it under the rug but he was game and matched Floyd step for step

Rocky didn't ruin boxing...not having a dominate US heavyweight "ruined boxing".

boxing is not ruined...nor has it ever been.

the Rocky saga really contributed nothing to boxing. all he did was take real life stories and turned them into a crappy series of movies that is a caricature of the real deal. he owes ali...he owes wepner....he owes frazier!!! it's fraziers statue that should be up in philly!!! not lame ass sylvester stallone. if anything...he helped fighters become more brain damaged with his bullshit.

No one expected an Englishman to talk that amount of shit and sound good doing it. It was good. I was dying laughing when Hatton was clowning Mayweather's pad work. It was great. But in the end he paid dearly for it. Gotta love British fans and Hatton!

I heard that is an excellent Movie! I wait until it comes out on Nextflix.

i'll tell you what....hatton had everyone sold. i knew better. i watched that fight in a spot that was packed to the gills with american hatton fans who boo'd floyd every step of the way! the funniest shit was when the fight was over and me and about the only 3 other mayweather fans at the joint started to chant "U-S-A!!! U-S-A!!! U-S-A!!!" they just dropped their heads in shame and filed out of that place very quietly. laugh.gif

Watching the Rocky movies nowadays, reveals all of the bad acting and unrealistic expectations of how a real boxing match is supposed to go, but they decent. I wont lie and sit here and say that I change the channel when I see a Rocky movie on. Lol

Lmao at the "sellouts" part...too funny! For some reason, I ALWAYS laugh when I hear somebody call a person (people) a sellout! It's usually said with strife, truth, and a nasty facial expression. laugh.gif

It was very entertaining and Hatton stood his ground and he stood his ground in the fight as well but Mayweather just showed how great he really is. I'm never going to forget that fight, that was the first Mayweather fight I went to and it was very memorable

I'm going to go check it out, crazy that it dropped the same day as the jury deliberations of the Zimmerman trial

Lol so true, when I see people call others sellouts the look they give is nothing short of a death stare, like they want you to know how serious they really are lol.

I can tolerate the Rocky movies, but looking back the acting in Stallone's part was comical. The fight scenes actually got better each movie but common sense tells us that a fight gets stopped if it resembles the mess in a Rocky movie. Where u can see a negative impact from the series us with fans, some of the fools actually believe a fight should be that way

I think it brought in fans so i won't say it contributed nothing. But it did and / or does have a negative influence on fans because some believe boxing should be that way

When they gave him that statue I felt that was huge disrespect to Smokin Joe

The real Rocky on that 30 for 30. I still want to know how much Wepner got from him, what ever it was it wasn't enough, he made an life for himself and many others off then back of this man and he wouldn't have even extended his hand if the courts hadn't of made him do it

Speaking of Stallone movies, anybody read that Victor Ortiz is gonna be in Expendables 3. Not to many fighters careers can flourish after being Ko'd twice in a row, but Ortiz is curving that notion.

I like the Rocky series. It was epic. Sly Stallone had nothing to do with the fact that boxing hit a decline. Is it 100% realistic? No. But how many sports movies are? I happen to think Rocky did a lot for boxing. Except Rocky 5....that shit was horrendous lol Ironically the first one centered around a real boxer lol

And you saw what happen to Tarver after that shitty movie. Yo, wasn't Tommy Gunn a real fighter? I know he got the AIDS virus in the 90s which is why he quit the sport
