If rocky had've followed Apollos gameplan, would he still have beaten Clubber Laing?

no he shunned the hit and move tactics in order to absorb punishment thus allowing Clubber to exhaust himself.

Yes.  Because Clubber was gassing out in a hurry.  With Rocky's confidence early in the fight going through the roof, so did his past habits and abilities to absorb a punch.  So he chose to exhaust Clubber by making him try to kill Rocky with every punch rather than making him gas out by missing for 5 or 6 rounds.  Remember...in training camp, Apollo estimated that employing this style would cause Rocky to run low on fuel himself after about 7 rounds.

cant be fucked with Creed. It will no doubt be all Urban and Hip Hoppy like everything ever made nowadays and little to do with the actual movies.
