Sylvester Stallone Pays Tribute Late 'Rocky' Co-Star Tony Burton

Sylvester Stallone is paying tribute to the late actor Tony Burton after he passed away earlier this week.

Tony Burton who played the character of Duke brilliantly in all six Rocky movies… Rest in peace,” the 69-year-old actor captioned a screencap from the movie on his Instagram account.

Tony played the role of Duke, the trainer of Rocky’s longtime rival Apollo Creed.

Unfortunately, Tony was never able to see the new movie Creed before he died as he was too sick at the end of his life to watch the film.
