In some of the fight scenes in the ring in this movie, Stallone actually had to stand on a box to reach Dolph! You, of course, don't see the box but it was there for some of the punches to drago's face, in order for him to reach Lundgren.
Sylvester and Dolph, at some points of the film, actually did box for real. Sylvester thought this would add to the realism. Well apparently it got too real, he injured his rib area and his heart temporarily!
During this film, it was still undetermined whether Burt Young
had got over his crush on Talia Shire, which might account for his great performance toward Rocky, his true feelings coming through as tension, anger, and jealousy.
The scene(s) where Rocky is supposed to be in Siberia are faked, he's in Wyoming...
Know some good info about the making of Rocky IV?

When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
