Stallone shares rehearsal footage from a cut Rocky/Drago fight in Creed 2

Creed II, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren

Although CREED II was very much Adonis Creed's (Michael B. Jordan) story, the film still dove deeply into the mythology of the ROCKY franchise, namely with the return of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), the man who killed Adonis' father in the ring in ROCKY IV. Naturally, Ivan and Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) have a bit of a history together, and although they do have something of a face-off in CREED II, their confrontation could have gotten much more physical.

Stallone shared a piece of rehearsal footage for a fight between Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago which would have taken place after the events of the first bout between Adonis and Ivan's son, Viktor. Check it out below.

"This was an early rehearsal for a short fight ROCKY was suppose to have with DRAGO in CREED 2 It took place in the hospital just after Adonis had been terribly beaten by Drago’s son," Stallone says in the Instagram post. "Adonis Is in much pain and tells me to leave ... Drago And the promoter show up with filmcrew ! They were planning on going upstairs to harass the beaten fighter but ROCKY stops them !!! It would’ve been extraordinary!, But regretfully it was cut ... Pity." While it would have been nice to have seen Rocky and Drago trade blows once again, it was probably for the best that it didn't end up in the final cut of the film.

CREED II is slated to hit DVD/Blu-ray on March 5, 2019. You can also get the film on Digital if that's your bag.
