Throughout the ring, Ivan Drago was the Soviet boxer who had killed his former opponent and good friend Apollo Creed throughout an exhibition match months prior. After a 15-round warfare, Rocky knocks out Drago inside seconds on the clock and delivers an inspiring speech about change to a beforehand hostile crowd who’s now in the course of a standing ovation… after which, roll credit.
The plot of Rocky IV, the fourth installment within the profitable Sylvester Stallone film’s franchise, took tens of millions to theaters within the 80’s and touched the hearts of many others since then, together with the younger Jose “Shorty” Torres. A lot in order that, when he had the possibility, Torres didn’t assume twice about reenacting what’s one in every of his favourite films.

Shorty is about to depart his hometown of Chicago, roughly 800 miles away from Rocky’s Philadelphia, and go all the best way to Russia to tackle the most important problem of his profession, one that may have enormous implications in his future.
