The Top Ten
1 Ivan Drago Ivan Drago is a fictional character in the 1985 film Rocky IV, in which he is Rocky Balboa's rival and the main antagonist. He is portrayed by Dolph Lundgren.

Rocky 4 was my favorite Rocky movie because it shows a boxer fighting back for the respect of his country. Rocky's toughest fight was against Drago, in my opinion. It's so intense, and what other boxing fight has 15 piled rounds of extreme punch strength? A fight of endurance, speed, and strength. If any of you have seen Rocky 5.

At the start, they show Rocky trying to overcome symptoms of his hands shaking in the change room due to brain trauma after the fight against Ivan Drago. Later in the movie, the doctors tell him he has a form of Cavum Septum Pellucidum in which Rocky suffers forgetfulness and minimal post-traumatic stress from Tommy Gunn's car speeding off, and Rocky hears echoes of the crowd and Drago punching him from top-down. This fight was a tough fight for Rocky, but he wins with determination, heart, and courage!

2 Apollo Creed (Rocky II)

This is the fight where Rocky wins his title, and he fights really hard for 15 rounds to endure Apollo Creed a second time. Apollo in this movie is much stronger than he appeared in the first Rocky, as he didn't take his training seriously.

The amount of determination that Rocky had to overcome in this fight is ridiculous. Rocky's second toughest fight!

He's quicker, stronger, smarter, and very hard. Rocky won a fluke. If Apollo had fought for the third time without being overconfident, he would have won. His disadvantage is that he is very confident.

3 Clubber Lang

The first fight Rocky defends his title and loses to Clubber Lang in Rocky 3. He felt bad about Mickey (his trainer) dying, which caused his confidence to severely drop to a minimum. However, I like this movie because Apollo steps in to help Rocky win his self-respect back and teaches him to fight differently, quicker, and gains more hand speed by using more jabs instead of hooks on most occasions. The reason I chose this fight as third is that it is only a short fight of three rounds but a tough fight of two American boxers. Great fight!

4 Apollo Creed (Rocky)

Rocky goes the distance and allows himself to draw and cause Apollo Creed to win by points decision only, a great fight but wasn't tougher than the fights listed above.

5 Thunderlips
6 Mason Dixon

I don't understand how Rocky gets brain damage yet fights 20 years later as an older man, but anyway, Rocky wins his pro-boxing license to fight Mason Dixon. A whole 10 rounds are fought, but the fight is very overrated. 80s boxers were much stronger and had much more punch power than boxers in this modern era.

Put Rocky 3 or 4 in his prime against Mason Dixon and you will find Mason gets crushed with Rocky's strength. All Mason has is speed. Not the toughest fight in my opinion, but to fight in the ring in your late 50s, not bad at all!

7 Tommy Gunn

What happens is that the fight was in the street. Tommy Gunn gave a good fight, but Rocky Balboa won with the support of the nosy friends who tried to lynch Tommy Gunn.

Well, Tommy Gunn was not the toughest opponent for Balboa, but Rocky was fighting against two opponents at once: Tommy Gunn and brain damage.

He was an amazing fighter and we see him fight Clubber Lang, Ivan Drago, Mason Dixon, and Apollo Creed.

8 Spider Rico

Spider Rico was a terrible fighter who fights dirty and is a bum at talking. It's obvious Rocky wins as you see the look on his face when he gets headbutted. No, it was a terrible fight.
