Tim Tebow Strips Down to Perform ‘Eye of the Tiger’ as Rocky Balboa on ‘Lip Sync Battle’: Watch

Watch your back, Italian Stallion! Tim Tebow shows off his fighting skills — and a fair amount of skin — to perform "Eye of the Tiger" as Rocky Balboa in a sneak peek from Lip Sync Battle's Thursday, February 4, episode.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, 28, begins the segment by jumping rope while wearing a hoodie and red headband, much like Sylvester Stallone's signature boxing-champ character in the Rocky film franchise. Tebow then loses the sweatshirt to reveal his muscular physique in a skimpy tank top.

Cohost Chrissy Teigen even joins in on the fun by donning a pair of pink boxing gloves.

Tebow faces off in the episode against former Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev. "Eye of the Tiger," which was featured on the Rocky III soundtrack, was a 1982 hit for the band Survivor.

Watch the video above to see the former Denver Broncos quarterback throw a few punches.

Lip Sync Battle airs on Spike on Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST.
