His dream is to appear in the next Creed film, which he openly expressed during the event.

On Philadelphia's inaugural 'Rocky Day’, which celebrated the 47th anniversary of the film released in 1976, Sylvester Stallone encountered a young fan, with whom he shared a wholesome moment. The nine-year-old Ro Knight approached the iconic Rocky statue and recited an iconic Rocky monologue like an Oscar-winning actor.

“Let me tell you something you already know,” he shouts with determination. “The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are; it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.”
