Answering the question about the tradition in the 'Rocky' movies to take a full-on punch at a seminal moment, and if he took one square on the chin, Majors replied that he took a couple of it and added that he loved it. He further went on to say that he was humbled by the opportunity to be a part of the 'Rocky' franchise. While talking about his co-star Jordan, Majors noted that he and Sylvester Stallone created a lineage and said that even though he is a villain in the movie, he wanted to give his absolute best to honour the lineage.

Further, Majors admitted that he has caught him a few times and taken and given some body shots. He said, "I took a couple, I think. I loved it. I’m just so humbled by the opportunity to be a part of the 'Rocky' franchise. Sly, Michael B Jordan, it’s like, if I’m gonna be in that lineage, even as a baddie, I wanna go for it. So, yeah, [Michael] might caught me a few times. I took some body shots, and gave out a few, too."
