It was like 1985 all over again when Dolph Lundgren and Carl Weathers came face-to-face in Venice Beach this week … and we could only think one thing — RUN, APOLLO!!!!!!
Remember, a juiced up Ivan Drago beat Apollo Creed to death during that exhibition bout in “Rocky IV” … why didn’t you throw in the damn towel, Rock!?!
But, here we are 34 years later … Apollo died after secretly knocking up a woman who had a kid named Adonis … and the rest is history!
There were rumors Carl Weathers was upset at Sylvester Stallone when the Rocky franchise came back with Creed … and Apollo Creed wasn’t a part of it — but all of that seems to be overblown.
Of course, Lundren’s Drago character DID come back to train his own gigantic Russian son in “Creed II” … a movie that made more than $200 mil at the box office.
Carl is now 71, Dolph is 61 and they both still lift … they ran into each other at the legendary Gold’s gym in Venice!
So, who would win in a real fight … Carl, Dolph or Sly?!
