The 77-year-old made an on-brand appearance after his success playing the fictional boxer Rocky Balboa.
Stallone stood between Usyk and Fury who both appeared surprised by the shock cameo.
But it was the fans watching on from home that were left in complete bewilderment with many of them taking to social media to react.
One wrote: “How random..Sylvester Stallone is here at this conference.”
While another added: “Safe to say I wasn’t expecting Sylvester Stallone to rock up.”
A third joked that Usyk would need a miraculous Rocky-style moment if he hoped to beat Fury.
They wrote: “Usyk will need a rocky script to pull this off.”
The press conference itself seemed to be written for the Hollywood screens too with drama during the face off.
Fury and Usyk ended up butting heads and had to be separated before any premature blows were thrown.
And The Gypsy King felt like he had scared his opposite by planting his forehead on the Ukrainian.
He said: “I think he’s scared to death. He’s rattled. His balls are twitching now, boys. His a***hole is flapping.”
