Ivan Drago (portrayed by Dolph Lundgren) was an amateur boxer and Olympic gold medalist from the Soviet Union armed with a punch over 2,000 psi. Although he was able to kill Rocky Balboa's friend and later trainer, Apollo Creed, he was not able to defeat Rocky.
The Soviet Union was extremly arrogant of Drago's abilities, however, Drago never really bragged about it. His wife, Ludmilla Drago, spoke for him almost every time. He was given several names, such as the Siberian Bull, the Siberian Express, and even Death from Above, referring to Drago's height and Apollo's death at the hands of Drago.
