BEDFORD HEIGHTS, Ohio, July 14 (UPI) -- Sylvester Stallone responded to a video of a toddler in Ohio who recreated his training scene from the original Rocky film.

Stallone re-uploaded the video of the little boy named Charlie as he mimics Rocky's various exercises in time with the film, which can be seen playing in the background.


This kid makes me so proud that it touches a heart so young," he wrote.

Stallone also joked that the video may indicate he would have to fight the boy as Rocky in "Rocky 10."

Charlie's father Zack Magilavy shared the original video on his Facebook page, saying that Rocky is his son's "favorite boxer" and that he hoped the video would somehow reach Stallone.

"It brings a smile to our face every time he asks to 'workout with Rocky,'" he wrote. "He takes his workouts very seriously."

Magilavy said he is glad to foster his son's admiration for Stallone's character, but says he makes sure that the young boy's television time is "very limited" and that he is not allowed to watch the actual fight scenes in Rocky.
