Rocky Balboa might have finally met his match.

A video has gone viral of a young boy named Charlie training alongside his favorite fictional boxer as he watches Rocky train for his fight against Apollo Creed in Rocky II. In the video, which his father posted on Facebook, the boy — still in diapers — mimics Rocky’s workout moves, including pushups and jumping rope.

Now, Rocky himself has weighed in: Sylvester Stallone, who has played the legendary character in seven films over the past 40 years, posted the video of Charlie’s workout on Instagram with the caption, “This kid makes me so proud that it touches A heart so young… Maybe I have to fight him and ROCKY 10!!!”

This kid makes me so proud that it touches A heart so young … Maybe I have to fight him and ROCKY 10 !!!
