Two-year-old Charlie Magilavy from Ohio might be Rocky Balboa's biggest fan...And maybe his greatest future opponent.

Since his dad Zack posted this video of Charlie "working out" (i.e. mimicking Sylvester Stallone's every move) in this Rocky II clip, it's been viewed almost three million times. And it's no mystery why.

Truly channeling Rocky Balbloa.

"It brings a smile to our face every time he asks to 'work out with Rocky.' He takes his workouts very seriously," Charlie's dad wrote in his Facebook post.

BUT no one is more impressed with Charlie than Rocky Balboa himself.

Sylvester Stallone took to Twitter and Instagram to praise Charlie and float the idea of challenging him to a fight in a faraway Rocky sequel.
