I've been able to see this before it's release date so I'll avoid giving too much away in this review. To ...
The fight scene happened right after an actual boxing event, so people who were there for a pay-per-view match got to see the ending scene. This was Sylvester Stallone's choice so he can make the fight as realistic as possible by actually taking and giving hits.
Yet another quick knockout for Mason Dixon, almost perfunctory; the fans let him know how they feel about it.
When Rocky Fights Dixon it shows his record as 57-23-1. He was 44-20 going into his first match with Apollo. He lost to Apollo, then beat him, then had 10 title defense victories. His record at that point was 55-21. After splitting with Clubber Lang he was 56-22. One more fight against Drago makes 57-22. The draw could have been the fight with Thunderlips in Rocky III, but where did the additional defeat come from?
