Billy 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. Portrayed as having a heart of a lion and the strength of an ox, Snow was sort of like a young Rocky Balboa at the start of his career. Billy appears in the 1988 Rocky video arcade game, as well as the Rocky: Legends video game.
After his first loss to Rocky Balboa, Billy Snow knew he couldn't beat him, so he retired and planned to stop boxing until Rocky had lost. He didn't come out of his retirement until 1991 after Tommy Gunn was stripped off his title. Billy won the Heavyweight title and kept it until 2000, when he finally decided to quit boxing for good (similar to Union Cane).
