Sources said the fight was minor and no one was seriously injured. They have not yet revealed, however, what led to the fight.
Crews for the upcoming movie have been filming in several locations in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.
The movie focuses on the grandson of Apollo Creed, the fictional rival of the famous Rocky Balboa, who is now working with Balboa to help become a boxing champion. It will be the seventh film in the "Rocky" franchise.
Along with Stallone, the film stars Michael B. Jordan, who will play Apollo’s grandson, and is directed by Ryan Coogler. Coogler’s first film, “Fruitvale Station,” garnered critical acclaim and also starred Jordan in the lead role as Oscar Grant, an Oakland man who was killed by a police officer.
