60-year-old Stallone to star in 'Rocky VI'

The LST Sports Desk has been hard at work the last few days, covering everything from the Astros playoff run to teenage girls playing golf. The logical extension of all this is fictional boxing. Well here you go:
Do you still remember this boxer named Rocky? Sylvester Stallone is ready to one more close-up in a role that first brought him to the spotlight in 1976. He will direct and star in Rocky VI, which probably starts filming this December in Los Angeles. In the film, lonely and retired boxer Rocky Balboa is back on the ring to take part in a few low-profile local fights. But then he is offered to challenge the reigning heavyweight champion, enigmatically named Mason "The Line" Dixon, and that’s where Rocky finds himself in the middle of the media frenzy.

I know what you're thinking: "But Rocky V sucked!" And you're absolutely right. That's why I think this one will be much better. There's no way Stallone will bring the Stallion out of retirement for a stinker. It also begs the question: What's your Rocky lineup? Clearly, "Rocky" was the best of the series, and "Rocky V" the worst. But how does the middle stack up? Here's mine:

  1. Rocky
  2. Rocky IV
  3. Rocky II
  4. Rocky III
  5. Rocky V
What do you think?
