Billy "The Iceman" Snow (born November 7, 1960) was a British boxer that fought Rocky Balboa. Apollo Creed suggested to fight him at first, but he decided to fight Rocky instead. He was from London, England and held the European, Commonwealth, British and English heavyweight titles. Portrayed as having a heart of a lion and the strength of an ox, Snow was similar to Rocky Balboa at the start of his career. In his earliest fights, Billy's temper got the best of him, making him quite prone to fouls. Billy appears in the 1988 Rocky video arcade game, the 2002 Rocky video game and the 2004 Rocky: Legends video game.
After his first loss to Rocky Balboa, Billy had a short retirement from boxing where he lost weight so he could fight in the Cruiserweight division. Eventually, he won the cruiserweight title and held it from 1985 to 1991, when he finally decided to quit boxing for good (similar to Union Cane).
