The Rocky Statue

A mysterious statue depicting a boxing silhouette has been gifted to the city of Philadelphia from an anonymous donor wishing for his hometown to be inspired.

The statue, which is made of bronze and weighs more than 500 pounds, was anonymously donated by a representative in the name of Rocky Balboa . Local sources state that the representative arrived with one condition: the statue should be installed in a location where it can provide motivation to those who would desire it.

Crowds of people have already begun gathering around the statue, which was found to have a tag hanging from its neck reading “It’s not how hard you hit, but how hard you get hit that counts,” a quote from the Rocky movie franchise. The quote is symbolic to the city of Philadelphia, which was founded by an individual who experienced frequent beatings before attaining greatness.

The statue’s sculptor, Paul Di’anno , stated that he created the work with a moody backdrop to provide inspiration for those who are not only in need of motivation but also feel beaten down.

The statue is located in the heart of the city, at the intersection of North Broad and Poplar streets.

Mayor Jim Kenney said that he was thrilled with the gift, which he called a “symbol of hope” for Philadelphians.
