Sylvester Stallone changed boxing on the big screen and today’s society forever. The story of Rocky is one of triumph with tremendous struggle physical and emotional. The he played Rocky Balboa has inspired me to keep focus and never give up that life will always knock you down that life is about taking you hits and keep moving towards your prize. I believe he deserved the lifetime achievement award because he has inspired my life for a lifetime.
