Does Handel's Agrippina contain the theme from Rocky?

I was listening to Handel's opera Agrippina I distinctly heard the first few bars of the theme from Rocky. Google does not seem to agree.

Listen to this performance
Compare with "Gonna Fly Now"
Is this a modernization added to the specific performance of Agrippina I'm listening to? Or is it just not notable enough to be easily searchable on Google or Wikipedia? I tried listening to another performance and couldn't find the same part.
