1-Ivan Drago- Rocky IV:

Out of all of the opponents Stallone’s Rocky Balboa fights in the Rocky franchise, Ivan Drago is easily the most dangerous. As played by future fellow action icon Dolph Lundgren, Drago is a gargantuan Soviet boxer that makes his mark on the professional boxing world by killing former world champion Apollo Creed in the ring in an exhibition bout. And Drago did it deliberately. I don’t think Drago would have said “If he dies, he dies” while staring directly at Stallone’s Rocky Balboa if killing Creed wasn’t something he sort of planned on doing. Now, you could argue that it was Creed’s fault that he died in the ring because he could have forfeited the fight after the first round, when it was obvious that he was absolutely no match for Drago, but Drago didn’t have to hammer Creed as hard as he did, either. Drago was in control of the fight from the beginning. And since the fight was “just” an exhibition, what difference would it have made if Drago himself stopped the fight?

As for Drago’s eventual fight with Balboa, the only reason Drago lost the fight was because it was in the script and he had to. Stallone may be a big guy himself and tough and whatnot, but how the hell would he go toe-to-toe against a guy as gigantic as Dolph Lundgren? There’s no way Stallone would win that fight. There’s no way Stallone could win that fight. So Drago had to lose because he was the villain and it was a movie. Otherwise, Drago rules the world.

How the hell are you going to fight a guy that says “I must break you” and he can really do it without breaking much of a sweat? How?
