Why do the Soviet trainers and Ivan Drago wear clothing made by Adidas? Rocky IV was shot at the height of the Cold War. There is no way that the Soviets would have chosen a Western (West German) manufacturer to produce their gear!

Who can give me the exact results of the two fights between colin jones vs kirkland laing?
Well, I think that even during the Cold War, the Soviet Union did have trade relations even with some western nations. Even if Adidas came from West-Germany, it was possible that the product was imported by the Soviet Union due to its well-known quality and close proximity (it being European-made). If I'm not mistaken, even the Sabonis-led Soviet national basketball teams back then were outfitted by Adidas.
I'm 24 yrs. old and will be boxing with a 51 yr. old cop who is overweight. Where should I punch him?
