NZ fighters follow in Rocky’s footsteps

By Tamati Tiananga

It has always been one of Rob Berridge’s childhood dreams to one day run up the steps of the famous movie Rocky III just like the actor Sylvester Stallone. It was like following in the footsteps of the great fighter himself Rocky Balboa.

Berridge arrived here on Friday and has settled in.

"He's never fought a southpaw but he would have been in camp training one hundred per cent against south paws. I don’t know what happens on fight night - we'll see. But I'm feeling pretty confident," says Rob Berridge in relation to his opponent for his upcoming fight.

Joseph Parker is also looking forward to his highly anticipated fight ahead.
