Oscar nominee Sylvester Stallone is taking it back, way back to the original "Rocky."

The action legend, 69, took to Instagram to post a bunch of classic, rare photos from his character's legendary fight with Apollo Creed in the 1976 movie.

The "Creed" star started posting photos yesterday with the caption "Flashback! Rocky versus Apollo Creed! 1976… One of my favorite photos." Then he posted 20 more! Stallone is experiencing his own personal comeback, winning a Golden Globe and being nominated for an Oscar for his performance in the movie.
