He is going back to where it all began. When you're down and out, the best shot is, simply, to Go for it!
When a doctor or a family member tells you that the only life you have ever know is over, that can be a pretty bitter ...
Tommy Gunn's first fight in the film takes place in the same hall where Rocky fights Spider Rico in the opening scene of Rocky (1976). Even the design of the opening shot of the scene is copied directly from the earlier film.
How ya doin', Mick?
After the fight is over, Rocky makes the statement that (paraphrased) he is sure that his kid has been watching the fight even though he should have already been in bed. With the time difference in Moscow, even if the fight had finished in Russia by mid-night then it would have been 6 p.m., or early evening in Philly.
In the closing credits Elton John's "The Measure Of A Man" plays while it shows stills from all five Rocky movies.
