PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Want to live like Rocky Balboa? The Italian Stallion's house is on the market.
The home in South Philadelphia was featured in the 1979 movie "Rocky II." In the sequel to the Oscar-winning smash, the fictional boxer played by Sylvester Stallone buys the house after he loses a bout to Apollo Creed but gains renown for his toughness.
The 1,036-square-foot row house has three bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms. Asking price: $139,000.
Real estate agent Joe Bianco says the home is for sale because the woman who lived there since the time of filming recently died.
He says the house was picked for "Rocky II" because the filmmakers "happened to like the front of the home and knocked on the door."
