With the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor boxing match being the hot topic as the fight was made official this week, many people have been giving their take on the big money fight set for August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sylvester Stallone, who starred in the classic Rocky movies was asked by TMZ recently about the match.

When asked who he thinks is going to win, Stallone fired back and asked TMZ who they think is going to win. When the representative from TMZ answered Mayweather, Stallone let out a “What?” in disbelief. Stallone was asked to confirm if he was rooting for McGregor and Sly replied, “I always got the underdog.”

“He’s a real life Rocky,” Stallone added.
