Everything you need to know about Sylvester Stallone and Mike Tyson entering the Boxing Hall of Fame was summarized nicely by the folks at the Associated Press in their opening line.

Mike Tyson broke down in tears and cut short his speech, and Sylvester Stallone proclaimed, “Yo, Adrian, I did it!” as they were inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, N.Y.

And with that, Sly Stallone — a guy whose ties to the sport are based solely on his involvement in the award winning “Rocky” movie series — is part of a hall of fame for athletes who have achieved greatness in their sport.

Next thing you know, they’re going to put up a statue of the guy in the city the fictional the movie was based in.
