The South Philadelphia row house that was featured in the 1979 movie “Rocky II” is up for sale.
In the sequel to the Oscar-winning smash, boxer Rocky Balboa — played by Sylvester Stallone — buys the house after he loses a bout to Apollo Creed but gains fame.
It’s no mansion — just one-thousand square feet, with three bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms.
The asking price is 139-thousand dollars.
Real estate agent Joe Bianco says the woman who lived there since the time of filming recently died.
