Despite the rumors, Sylvester Stallone is alive and still punching.

A hoax circuiting across the internet over the weekend had many believing the beloved Rocky legend had passed away.

Never fear internet, the man himself confirmed the rumors were just that.


Please ignore this stupidity… Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching!
