Almost half a century has passed since the series got its start in 1976’s Rocky, featuring Carl Weathers’ first appearance as the original boxing nemesis, Apollo Creed. Mr. T and Dolph Lundgren take their respective turns against “Sly” as Clubber Lang and the iconic Ivan Drago, featuring uplifting montage after uplifting montage, the likes of which we will never tire.

ESPN’s Dan Rafael confirmed the trilogy matchup between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder—originally planned for July 18—would be delayed, while the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have also been pushed back by 12 months.
Rocky may be a fictional character from a time long passed, but one of his most memorable quotes reminds us to keep fighting through trying times:
“It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”
