Sylvester Stallone already confirmed he's going to reprise his role in the highly anticipated "Rocky VI." However, the legendary boxing champion Rocky Balboa won't fight alone. He will have to face a tough rival. Who is he? It's heavyweight champion Mason Dixon.
As Stallone is about to portray Balboa, the question is who's going to play the challenger's role? Just now, it's reported that light heavyweight king Antonio Tarver informed Boxingtalk.com that his representatives are in final negotiations for a deal that would result in his getting the role of Mason Dixon in the film. Rocky Balboa to face Antonio Tarver? We'll see then.
"Rocky VI" tells about lonely and retired boxer Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement, intending to fight a few low-profile local fights just to keep his hand in. But when he's approached to fight a match with reigning heavyweight champ Mason "The Line" Dixon, Rocky's modest little comeback becomes the center of a media firestorm. Besides starring in, Stallone also is writing and producing.
