HOME OF APOLLO CREED
When your gym trains a world heavyweight champion, you let people know about it. The fictional Delphi Boxing Academy in Philadelphia is where Apollo Creed got his start – and where his son, Adonis “Creed” Johnson, got an introduction to world-class competition (it cost him his prized Mustang for a couple years when Danny “Stuntman” Wheeler knocked him out in an impromptu sparring session). The Delphi Gym, run by Tony “Little Duke” Burton (his late father trained Apollo), is a historic place – and now VIP Fan Auctions is offering to the Rocky/Creed fan who casts the winning bid a three-piece screen-used collection of Delphi banners that hang in this legendary proving ground. The banners read: “Delphi Boxing Academy Celebrates World Champion Apollo Creed” in black and white; “Delphi Boxing Academy Home of Apollo Creed” (pictured) in grey and red; and “Delphi Boxing Academy” in red, white and black.
