— Rocky Balboa has come home.
The winning bidder turned out to be Stallone, Sports Collectors Daily reported.
The bronze statue, one of two replicas of the original used in the 1982 film, “Rocky III,” had been located at the San Diego Hall of Champions, which is now closed. It was created by sculptor A. Thomas Schomberg. The original stands near the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The statue was cast in bronze in 1980, and after filming for “Rocky III” ended, Stallone donated the statue to the city of Philadelphia.
There is an engraved gold plaque on the statue’s base that reads, in part: “Rocky Balboa, Created in 1980 for the Movie ’Rocky III’ by A. Thomas Schomberg Edition #2/3.”
A third copy of the Rocky statue was created by Schomberg in 2006 and remains at the Schomberg Studios in Evergreen, Colorado, Sports Collectors Daily reported.
Stallone shared an Instagram video that shows the statue being brought into his home, noting that Rocky would “rise again” and that, “He’s down, but not out.”
My goodness you NEVER know who's going to drop in during Christmas vacation!? Sadly, We have no Available bedrooms in the house so he'll probably have to get himself a hotel room.. A very Merry Christmas to one and all and always KEEP PUNCHING ! Ps (The original one is still in Philadelphia this was the back up statue that was made at the same time )
Stallone also shared an Instagram post on Christmas Day, posing with Arnold Schwarzenegger in front of the statue.

NEW YORK — While promoting her show “Grace and Frankie” with co-star Lily Tomlin, actress and activist Jane Fonda revealed she underwent surgery to have cancer removed.
Fonda was doing an interview for Build, a live interview series, Monday and mentioned the surgery as why she had a bandage on her lower lip.
“I just want to explain the bandage. I just had a cancer taken from my lip,” she said. “I thought it was going to heal in time before I came (for the interview). It’s fine. I just wanted to explain it. I don’t normally go around like this.”
“The world is falling apart. What’s a lip?” Fonda joked when praised by the interviewer for still showing up to face the press.
Fonda and Tomlin went on to discuss their Netflix show, how they do and don’t resemble their characters, the importance of social activism and other topics during the lively interview, which can be watched in full on the Build Series website.
On Tuesday, Fonda quickly made mention of the procedure during a “Today” show appearance with Tomlin.
“I had a little cancer,” she said, waving her hand.
While posing for pictures during press rounds, Fonda covered her mouth, saying on Instagram, “I’ve found a clever way to disguise my lip bandages from removal of cancer.”

MIAMI — Enrique Iglesias is taking a break from his ulta-private life to share the first photo of one of his twins with the world, and so is his rumored wife, retired tennis star Anna Kournikova.
E! News reported that the singer, who welcomed twins with Kournikova in December, shared the first photo of himself snuggling one of the babies on social media on Instagram with the caption, “My Sunshine.”
Kournivoca posted a similar photo an hour later on her Instagram page with the same caption. In the image, she cradles one of her babies in her hands and gives a kiss.
The couple kept Kournikova’s pregnancy a secret from the public for the duration until they welcomed the babies, a boy and a girl, late last year. According to TMZ, the twins were reportedly named Nicholas and Lucy.
Iglesias and Kournikova started dating in 2001 when the retired tennis star appeared as his love interest in the music video for his hit single “Escape.”
