DescriptionA Pair of Boxing Trunks from "Rocky III." Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/United Artists, 1982. Golden yellow satin, black elasticized waistband (now faded to dark brown), black satin side trim (now faded to dark brown), black stitching on right leg reads "Rocky;" purposely distressed with faux blood on front and especially back, tear on seam of right leg; worn by Stallone as "Rocky Balboa" when he fights "Clubber Lang" [Mr. T].
"These trunks represent how at this time Rocky was not paying attention to what really mattered in his career which was focus. He was unfocused and more into glamour and his image. And he had gotten a little unrealistic, thought he was invincible. These trunks represent the 'golden boy' image which eventually led to his downfall. So there's a reason why everything in this film is a certain color -- the golden gloves, the golden shorts - it was to represent the mistake he was making by moving away from the seriousness of his craft and going towards the more glamorous side. It cost him. His ego got in the way and that's what the story is built on."
