It was a tale of two Rockys when Sylvester Stallone and Andy Karl shared the onstage boxing ring at the Winter Theater hours before a recent show.Stallone spoke proudly of the character he created more than 40 years ago and how Karl has taken the legacy to new levels with the current Broadway show based on the film.Back in the early 1970s, a nearly destitute Stallone wrote the screenplay and bargained for the starring role. The actor-writer gave the underdog hero his own values and the journey ended with "Rocky" winning the best picture Oscar in 1977 .The 67-year old feels the story is in good hands with Karl. And so does the Broadway community: Karl was nominated for a best actor Tony.
