    I chose those two because neither did well in the subcontinent.

    I'm a huge Ivan Drago fan, but he never beat Rocky so his record against the best is dubious.

    That being said Ivan Drago's away record is impressive (beat Apollo Creed in the US).

    Terrible writing but Drago was the man.

    "According to Rocky: The Ultimate Guide, Ivan Drago wasn't permitted to resume his boxing career after his loss to Rocky Balboa because of the special circumstance that he could not officially turn pro in the USSR. Ivan Drago turned professional after the fall of the Soviet Union and accumulated an impressive 31-1 (31 KO) record while also winning a portion of the Heavyweight title. He never unified the title or fought the very top contenders (as a pro) because of promotional politics. It is possible that Drago defeated Tommy Gunn for the Heavyweight Championship (Timewise, Tommy was the Champion as of 1988 and the Soviet Union fell in 1991). Drago seems to have retired the Champion, perhaps due to lack of success. The Heavyweight title may have gone to Mason Dixon's unnamed opponent. His only defeat as a pro or an amateur fighter was at the hands of Rocky Balboa."

    What makes Balboa's victory against Drago so impressive was that it was done on Drago's home ground.

    Like the WACA for Australia, Moscow was always seen as a graveyard for tourists. Tough to adjust to those conditions imo.

    Drago's victory in USA just as good. Killed Apollo Creed.

    That was beating up on a minnow though. Creed was past his best by that time.
