5. ROCK BALBOA VS. MASON "THE LINE" DIXON IN ROCKY BALBOA (2006)

Sylvester Stallone's 2006 return to the Rocky franchise initially seemed like little more than a cash grab, but the movie proved to be pretty decent. What was even more impressive was the physique that Stallone sported for the flick. Of course, it was revealed after his arrest for attempting to smuggle steroids into Australia that Stallone was on the “Body by BALCO” diet, but that doesn’t change the fact that he was more shredded than Enron’s financial documents in Rocky Balboa.

The shape that Stallone was in made it believable that the much older Rocky could hang with the terribly named world champion, Mason "The Line" Dixon. In the film, the two have a brutal boxing match that is easily the equal of the earlier Rocky pictures. Color us surprised that Stallone put together such a good film nearly three decades after the original, but we just hope he slows down on more Rocky movies before he needs a wheelchair ramp to get into the ring.
