apollo

Apollo Creed was one of the most talented heavyweight champions of all time. He was also one of the most bombastic showmen in boxing – and when Apollo (played by Carl Weathers) gave Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), a local journeyman fighter with a hammer for a left, it launched one of the greatest rivalries in sports movie history. That rivalry would ultimately turn to friendship, and when Apollo died in the ring at the hands of Soviet Ivan “The Siberian Bull” Drago (Dolph Lundgren in Rocky IV), it would not mark the end of the Creed legacy. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a framed pair of Apollo’s star-spangled trunks that hang on the wall of the mansion of his widow and fighter son Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan).
