I think so, too, cos firstly he told him to act like this and secondly they all got so much money that one stay week in hospital didn't matter that much. lol

Really? Dolph said in an interview that Sly was cool about that and had no hard feelings.

i read somewhere that Dolph punched Stallone in the stomach and it pushed his diaphram by his heart, and stallone had to be in the hospital for 2 weeks.

Dolph said that it made him feel like a kid not realizing his own strength!

Yeah and Sly had a few broken ribs, too!!! O.o
Then it says that Mr. T wasn't that brutal but he looked almost the same when punching hardly.

stallone also said that he liked to fight Dolph the best because Mr.T gave him "rug burns" with his hair! :shock: it was so funny when he said that though!

i found a very interesting interview about that punch with sly...(unfortunately in german)

"Ich dachte Rocky und Drago hassen sich so stark, dass sie sich wie wildgewordene Amateure gegenseitig die Köpfe einschlagen sollten. Also sagte ich zu Dolph Lundgren, dass er mich vernichten sollte und er tat es auch. Er schlug mich immer wieder und wieder sehr hart, bis ich schreiend 'cut' rief. In der selben Nacht klopfte mein Herz wie wild und es fühlte sich schwerer an. Ich wurde zu einem Arzt gebracht und das nächste was ich wusste war, dass ich für 11 Tage in intensiver Behandlung bin. Einer der Schläge brachte mein Herz zum schwellen und es hörte auf zu schlagen. Da dachte ich mir, das ist echt zuviel." so der Rocky-Darsteller.

New Rocky set will be out in December

It's not a publicity, it really done. That's probably the reason why dolph have same gloves than sly in the begining of the movie and smaller gloves than sly after ?!?

I'm just reading that :

During filming of the training scenes in Russia (actually shot in Wyoming), Stallone began complaining of chest pains after having gone through the exercise where he pulls the sledge of rocks into the air. A doctor's examination revealed that he'd damaged his heart. Production was shut down for two months in an effort to prevent a possible heart attack.


Some of the fight scenes between Rocky and Drago where real as director Stallone wanted the action to look as authentic as possible. As a result, Dolph Lundgren accidentally broke three of Sly's ribs.

There is 10 other articles that say the damage was done from a punch by Dolph and not the sled. I don't thing the sled story is acurate, that would more likely hurt his back, it would not cause heart damage. Something physically has to obstruct the heart or hit it to cause damage. A punch would cause those problems.
