DescriptionA Pair of Boxing Trunks from "Rocky Balboa" (aka "Rocky VI"). Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 2006. Black velour, bright yellow satin stripes down either leg, elasticized waistband, front waistband stitched in yellow thread "Rocky," purposely distressed with faux blood on right side; worn by Stallone as "Rocky Balboa" in his final fight versus "Mason 'The Line' Dixon" [Antonio Tarver].
"These trunks use the same colors as as the high school that I never graduated from -- Lincoln High School in Philadelphia. This was an ode or callback to those days, a sign of respect, that they then became Rocky's colors. We even made the ring ropes yellow to remind me of Lincoln High School. That's where the idea of these Rocky colors came from, but the school is now gone, it doesn't exist anymore. This was just a bit of nostalgia on my part that Rocky would wear black and yellow. Also, there was a scene shot for Rocky II that I never put in the movie where Rocky goes back to his high school and they give him an honorary degree while he's wearing these same colors. I wanted something memorable and classic for the last fight that Rocky would ever participate in, the battle against Mason Dixon. These trunks were perfect to me, so comfortable, so classic, and it's the way I wanted to look for the final round, for the final installment of Rocky. The trunks are also very significant because Rocky, in his last fight ever, goes back to the same colors of Rocky II when he was still, in his mind, a challenger, a fella who had to get off the canvas many times to succeed. These colors represent the working class nature of who this character really is so, in a sense, with these black and gold trunks, Rocky has come full circle in his life."
