With the release of the new movie Creed, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) has shifted his position from fighter to trainer, almost certainly for good. While Creed is not a Rocky movie in the strictest of terms, it does give us a reason to look back on the storied career of the silver screen's greatest pugilist, and the battles he had to overcome to reach those heights.

Here are Rocky’s opponents, ranked by toughness. Agree? Disagree? Let us know in the comments below. And vote in our poll at the end!

5. Clubber Lang
It seems strange putting Mr. T at the bottom of the list, but while the real man was as tough as they come, the character he played was not. Clubber Lang was by far one of the strongest people that Rocky Balboa fought in his career, but he wasn’t that tough. Lang won his match with Rocky with pure physical power, but he couldn’t take it nearly as well as he dished it out. Once Rocky gained the upper hand in the rematch, there was nothing Lang could do. He was done. He talked the best smack, though. #PaperChampion.
