Rocky taking tons of hits from Ivan Drago who hits over 3x harder than the average boxer is enough to ensure he won't go down (also keep in mind Apollo Creed died from less hits).

Rocky at this point is nearing his prime too (Rocky 4), so he's definitely the more skilled one. While Adonis has some decent W's, he has nothing on Rocky beating Apollo Creed in Rocky 2, who I don't believe Adonis has reached parity with yet, considering narrative.

Also by feats, Rocky hits way harder, was able to send a fatass grown man off his feet with one punch.

being on par with Apollo Creed (who beat all time great George Foreman In Universe) definitely implies he's more skilled too.

Do you have a source for this? If so then that's pretty cool. I know that Rocky Marciano, Joe Frazier, and Muhammad Ali all exist in the Rockyverse, didn't know that Foreman did as well.

Rocky. He has by feats close to superhuman levels of durability. Creed can’t put him down.

Rocky stomps. The rematch with Lang was IMO his peak in terms of speed and skill, while being his usual durable self.

Just found this statement from Stallone where he states that Creed II Adonis would easily knock out Clubber Lang in 3 rounds or less

IMO, this fight is a lot closer after seeing this statement, which at least puts Adonis on the same level as Rocky 2 Rocky

@mrsportsguy13: I agree, Donny in Creed 2 is above Rocky 3 lvl, to be fair though both characters (Rocky and Adonis) just need a proper training montage with popular music and they can practically take on God lol.

Both movie franchises are essentially the same dude with different skin tones
