    Description

    A Boxing Robe from "Rocky IV." Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1985. White satin, with rounded lapels, three front pockets, back with royal blue stitching reading "Balboa," with red satin self-belt, heavily distressed with faux blood and dirt; worn by Stallone as "Rocky Balboa" when he fought "Ivan Drago" [Dolph Lundgren].

    "I remember this robe because as I was directing this scene of waiting in the locker room before we go out to start the fight, in real life, I was very, very sick with a temperature of about 104. I was just sweating through this robe. Even though it didn't weigh much, it felt like a blanket on me. I remember how incredibly hot I was -- I couldn't wait to get into that ring so I could take it off and start the fight."
