This speech was from the last solo film of the character, which was 2006’s Rocky Balboa, which he gave when his son comes to see him at his restaurant. As Robert comes to know that his father will be going forward with his match against Mason Dixon, he approaches Rocky to tell him not to take the fight as it would end badly for the both of them.

But when he hears his son giving up, he delivers one of, if not the most powerful speech in the franchise’s history, which will forever be ingrained in the minds of the audience going forward. And it seems like more than a decade later, it’s still fresh in the minds of the young blood.

Part of the charm of the original Rocky franchise was its timelessness, which was the by-product of a simple yet impactful approach, which was the hardships of life.

From the first film of the original franchise to the latest movie in the subsequent Creed series, the focus of the films has always been more on what goes into making and shaping a fighter than the fights themselves. The franchises constantly remind us that life is full of hardships, but it’s up to us to either be broken by them or rise above them.
