Football player/sportscaster Tim Tebow impersonated Rocky Balboa and performed “Eye of the Tiger” on “Lip Sync Battle.”
Although he is not much of a song-and-dance man, Tebow showed off a nice figure and a look of a boxer.
The teaser featured Tebow dressed as Rocky Balboa, the iconic movie character played by Sylvester Stallone in the “Rocky” films. Tebow was then seen undergoing intense training while “Rocky III” theme song, “Eye of the Tiger,” is playing in the background. The 6’3″ football quarterback then jumped into the rope before he takes off his sweat jacket.
Tebow will be competing against former “The Vampire Diaries” actress Nina Dobrev. Each will perform two songs before the members of the audience vote for the winner.

Both performances will be aired on Feb. 4, 2016. Who do you think will win this battle?
“Lip Sync Battle” is a show on the Spike cable network that features celebrities competing in lip sync song-and-dance numbers, CBS Sports noted. Hip-hop artist LL Cool J and supermodel Chrissy Teigen host the show. “Lip Sync Battle” already showcased high-profile celebrities in the past.
Recently, Channing Tatum impersonated ice queen Elsa from the movie “Frozen” and also had a showdown with wife Jenna Tatum. Beyonce also made an appearance alongside the “Magic Mike” actor.
Meanwhile, rumours of Dobrev’s return to “The Vampire Diaries” never die.
TVD showrunner Julie Plec earlier teased Dobrev’s come back.
In an interview with Variety, Plec said she was all for Nina’s return.
Plec said: “Yes, I miss her deeply, and would take her back in an instant if she called and said, ‘Hey, can I come back and play?’”
However, the chances of a comeback may not be in the show’s future. According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Dobrev is still upset with her ex, Ian Somerhalder. The two dated while working on “The Vampire Diaries” but broke up in 2013.
