Continuity mistake: After the final fight Rocky is walking to the dressing room and waving to the fans. He then stops and hugs Spider, then Marie and her son and then Duke and they walk off. The camera then goes back into the ring where they announce Dixon has won. But in the bottom left of the screen you can see Duke still in the ring but he had already left and had gone back into the dressing room.

Duke: To beat this guy, you need speed. You don't have it. And you've got calcium deposits on most of your joints, so sparring is out.
Paulie: I had that problem.
Duke: So what we'll be calling on is blunt force trauma. Let's start building some hurtin' bombs.

Question: Wasn't Rocky supposed to have a brain injury from Rocky V, that prevents him from fighting?

MikeH

Answer: This is true, however it was something invented for Rocky V that was supposed to be from Rocky IV that was only introduced into V after. V is considered to be the worst film of the series with very poor reception. Stallone himself has even gone on record saying that he hates V. So this sixth film almost pretends that film never happened. V is still technically canon with this film, however six basically ignores a lot of problem with that film and tries to recton it. Does this create inconsistencies and continuity issues with the series? yes. Is the film better for it? Definitely. So where as that was supposed to be the case after V, they pretty much said with this film that no... we are not doing that any more pretend V didn't happen... but it did happen. It's a soft reboot in a way.
