Bent had the eye of the tiger as he pipped Delph in the hotly-contested pace race.
Ian Taylor came in a very creditable third after mapping out the route run by Rocky in the brilliant boxing movie of 1976.
All three also had their pictures taken in front of the Rocky Statue, which is located at the foot of the steps that grace the entrance to Philadelphia Museum of Art.
And you couldn't wipe the smile off Bent's face as he revelled in the knockout performance.
He would have been forgiven for shouting out: "Yo Fabian, I did it!"
