Sylvester Stallone shared an Instagram photo of him shaking hands with former World heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson. Rocky Balboa and Iron Mike announced the release of the first-in-series documentary about memorable fights in recent boxing history called One night.
The Hollywood star made a joke about Tysons handshake: ‘Notice Mike accidentally almost breaking my hand in the second shot. His hands are like sledgehammers. Luckily I didn’t get mad!’.
Mike Tyson also posted one of the photos on his Instagram page with the rhythm of the Rocky theme song in caption. Both Stallone and Tyson fans rushed to comment and suggest a match between the big-screen and a real-life boxing legend.
However, the occasion for the photo is not a clash between these two, but a new Stallone’s documentary.
The Hollywood actor and producer Sylvester Stallone invited Mike Tyson to be interviewed about the night when undefeated champion Anthony Joshua got dethroned by Andy Ruiz on June 1 at Madison Square Garden. ‘One Night: Joshua vs. Ruiz’ will be the first documentary in Sylvester Stallone’s Balboa Productions and DAZN new feature documentary series called ‘One night’.

Soon to be seen on the @dazn_usa NETWORK. Notice Mike accidentally almost breaking my hand in the second shot. His hands are like sledgehammers. Lucky I didn’t get mad! #balboaproductions
