Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone and the WBO light middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez work on a “secret project”.
Sylvester Stallone posted a video on his Instagram that shows him face to face with Saul Alvarez. The pair circles in the boxing gym with “Canelo” throwing punches at “Rocky”.
“Movie boxing choreography with reigning world champion Canelo Alvarez! Reenacting the scene when Rocky is taking punches from clubber Lang… Champion Canelo throws a beautiful left hook, a weapon you don’t want to see up close and personal,” Stallone captioned.
Earlier this month Alvarez posted a related video on his page on Facebook. “Secret project with Sylvester Stallone #TEAMCANELO,” he captioned.
“Sly” can be often seen in the fight gym. In November Demi Lovato posted a clip “just knocking out Rocky” where she playfully spars the legend. Although there is no indication on the actual movie project with Stallone and Alvarez the rumors emerge regarding the Rocky 8 film.
Mexican boxer Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (48, 34 KOs – 1 – 1) is the WBO light middleweight world champion. He earned the belt last September against British Liam Smith. To date he has faced a unique defeat against Floyd Mayweather in 2013. Riding the 6-fight winning streak he is fighting Julio Cesar Chavez Jr on May 6 in Las Vegas. As of December 2016, Box Rec ranked Alvarez as the world’s best boxer, pound for pound.
