Rocky actor Tony Burton dies aged 78
Tony Burton, who appeared in six Rocky films opposite Sylvester Stallone, has died at the age of 78. His cause of death is not known but his sister, Loretta Kelly, said he had regularly been in hospital over the past year. She added he had not received a diagnosis in that time but his health was so poor he had not been able to see recent spin-off film Creed. Burton played Tony "Duke" Evers, who trained both Rocky and Apollo Creed.
