My best birthday present was a sudden revelation that I had to write the kind of screenplay that I personally enjoyed seeing. Unwilling to go bankrupt, Rocky decides to participate in a Schirach Schuld more fights, including the one against Union Cane, but Adrian demands that Rocky should see a doctor first. Rocky then quickly starts to beat Tommy without giving him a chance, knocking him down. He felt in his mind that Rocky was primarily a feature film, and he did not see it as being translated for cable, so there was a 12 Meter Tief bone of contention. In addition, Rocky also has an exhibition match against the World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion, "Thunderlips" Hulk Hoganwith the match ending in a draw. The Beste Horrorfilme 2012, Glenn Belz, had total hours of flying time, 35 of them at night, and had no instrument rating.
Rocky Marciano started fighting as a professional boxer in , winning a fight against Harry Bilizarian. He then went on to win his first 16 fights. In , he beat Jersey Joe Walcott for the world heavyweight championship.
Marciano defended his title six times. He retired in and died in Marciano and his three sisters and two brothers lived across the street from the James Edgar Playground, where Marciano spent countless hours playing baseball.
At a young age, he worked out on homemade weights and did chin-ups until he "was totally fatigued. Marciano attended Brockton High School and played baseball and football, but got cut from the varsity baseball team when he violated rules by joining a church league.
He dropped out of school in the 10th grade and began jumping from job to job, one of which was a floor sweeper position at Brockton's shoe factory.
In , Marciano was drafted into the Army and sent to Wales, where he ferried supplies across the English Channel to Normandy.
He completed his service in March at Fort Lewis, Washington. While awaiting discharge, Marciano represented his unit at Fort Lewis in a series of amateur fights, winning the Amateur Armed Forces boxing tournament.
In March , he fought as a professional competitor, knocking out Lee Epperson in three rounds. Later that year, after trying out for the Chicago Cubs baseball team and being cut, Rocky returned to Brockton and began boxing training with longtime friend Allie Colombo.
Marciano's workout regimen included a minimum of seven miles of running per day and wearing heavy training shoes specially designed for him by a local shoe mogul and admirer.
However, he was cut from the school baseball team because he had joined a church league, violating a school rule forbidding players from joining other teams.
He dropped out of school after finishing tenth grade. Marciano then worked as a chute man on delivery trucks for the Brockton Ice and Coal Company.
He also worked as a ditchdigger, railroad layer  and shoemaker. He was a resident of Hanson, Massachusetts ; the house he lived in still stands on Main Street.
After the war ended, he completed his service in March at Fort Lewis , Washington. Marciano's amateur record was 8—4. His amateur career was briefly interrupted on March 17, , when Marciano stepped into the ring as a professional competitor at the Valley Arena Gardens of Holyoke, Massachusetts , being billed as "Rocky Mackianno of Westover Field".
He was controversially beaten by Coley Wallace. There, he knocked out George McInnis, but hurt his hands during the bout and was forced to withdraw from the tournament.
That was his last amateur bout. In late March , Marciano and several friends traveled to Fayetteville, North Carolina , to try out for the Fayetteville Cubs, a farm team for the Chicago Cubs baseball team.
After failing to find a spot on another team, he returned to Brockton and began boxing training with longtime friend Allie Colombo.
Although he had one professional fight against Lee Epperson on his record, Marciano began fighting permanently as a professional boxer on July 12, That night, he notched a win over Harry Bilazarian 3—6—0.
He won his first 16 bouts by knockout, all before the fifth round and nine before the first round was over.
Don Mogard 17—9—1 became the first boxer to last the distance full 10 rounds scheduled with "The Rock", but Marciano won by unanimous decision.
Early in his career, he changed the spelling of his last name, "Marchegiano". The ring announcer in Providence, Rhode Island , could not pronounce it, so Marciano's handler, Al Weill, suggested they create a pseudonym.
The first suggestion was Rocky Mack, which Marciano rejected, deciding to go with the more Italian-sounding "Marciano".
Marciano won three more fights by knockout, and then he met Ted Lowry 58—48—9. Marciano kept his winning streak alive, beating Lowry by unanimous decision.
Four more knockout wins then followed, including a five-rounder on December 19, , with Phil Muscato 56—20—0 , an experienced heavyweight from Buffalo, New York , being the first "name fighter" Marciano faced.
Three weeks after that fight, Marciano beat Carmine Vingo 16—1—0 by a sixth-round knockout in New York that almost killed Vingo.
La Starza may have come closer than any other boxer to defeating Marciano as a professional. The scoring for the bout was 5—4, 4—5, and 5—5. Marciano won on a supplemental point system used by New York and Massachusetts at that time.
The scoring system did not award an extra point for a knockdown and Marciano scored a knockdown in the fight. Referee Watson decided the bout, scoring it for Marciano.
Both boxers were undefeated before the fight, with La Starza's record at 37—0. Marciano scored three more knockouts in a row before a rematch with Lowry 61—56—10 , Marciano again winning by unanimous decision.
After that, he scored four more knockouts and, after a decision over Red Applegate 11—14—2 in late April , he was showcased on national television for the first time, knocking out Rex Layne 34—1—2 in six rounds on July 12, On October 27, , the year-old Marciano took on the year-old Joe Louis.
After four more wins, including victories over year-old Lee Savold 96—37—3 and Harry Matthews 81—3—5 , Marciano received a shot at the world title.
Walcott dropped Marciano in the first round and steadily built a points lead. In the 13th, Walcott used his trademark feint to set up his right hand, but Marciano's "Suzie Q" landed first, a powerful right hook causing Walcott to slump to his knees with his arm draped over the ropes.
He lay motionless long after he had been counted out and Marciano became the new World Heavyweight Champion. At the time of the stoppage, Walcott was leading on all scorecards, 8—4, 7—5, and 7—4.
His first defense came a year later — a rematch against Walcott, 39, who this time was knocked out in the first round. Next, it was Roland La Starza's turn to challenge Marciano.
After building a small lead on the judges' scorecards all the way through the middle rounds, Marciano won the rematch by a technical knockout in the 11th round.
Then came two consecutive bouts against former World Heavyweight Champion and light heavyweight legend Ezzard Charles , 33, who became the only man to ever last 15 rounds against Marciano.
Referee Ruby Goldstein scored the bout in rounds for the champion. Marciano won the return fight by an eighth-round knockout. Marciano knocked him out in the ninth round.
Marciano's last title bout was against year-old Archie Moore, on September 21, The bout was originally scheduled for September 20, but because of hurricane warnings, it had to be delayed a day.
Marciano was knocked down for a four-count in the second round, but recovered and retained his title with a knockout in round nine.
Marciano announced his retirement on April 27, , aged After only a month of training in nearly four years, Marciano decided against it and never seriously considered a comeback again.
After his retirement, Marciano entered the world of television, first hosting a weekly boxing show on TV in and later appearing in the Combat! For a brief period, he worked as a troubleshooting referee in wrestling Marciano was a good wrestler in high school.
He continued as a referee and boxing commentator in boxing matches for many years. The house still stands as of In late July , shortly before his death, Marciano participated in the filming of The Superfight: Marciano vs.
The two boxers were filmed sparring, then the film was edited to match a computer simulation of a hypothetical fight between them, each in their prime.
It aired on January 20, , with one version having Marciano winning and the second version having Ali winning. On August 31, the day before his 46th birthday , Marciano was a passenger in a small private plane, a Cessna  heading to Des Moines, Iowa.
It was night time and bad weather had set in. The pilot, Glenn Belz, had total hours of flying time, 35 of them at night, and had no instrument rating.
Belz tried to land the plane at a small airfield outside Newton, Iowa but the aircraft hit a tree two miles short of the runway.
Flying with Marciano in the back seat was Frankie Farrell, 28, the oldest son of Lew Farrell , a former boxer who had known Marciano since his childhood.
The National Transportation Safety Board report said, "The pilot attempted an operation exceeding his experience and ability level, continued visual flight rules under adverse weather conditions and experienced spatial disorientation in the last moments of the flight.
He had hoped to return in the early morning for his 46th birthday celebration with his wife. His wife Barbara Marciano died five years later at the age of 46 due to lung cancer, and is entombed next to him.
In , Nat Fleischer , a boxing historian and founder of The Ring , named Marciano as the 10th all-time greatest heavyweight champion. In his bout with light heavyweight champion Archie Moore, for example, he missed almost two-thirds of the odd punches he threw when he had Archie against the ropes, a perfect target for the kill.
John Durant, author of The Heavyweight Champions , wrote in p. He never faced top fighters like they did. It was not Rocky's fault, of course, that there was a lack of talent when he was boxing.
He fought them all and that is what a champion is supposed to do. Rocky travels to Los Angeles to visit a hospitalized Donnie, who lashes out at him for abandoning him.
With Donnie becoming detached from his family, Donnie's stepmother and Apollo's widow Mary Anne Phylicia Rashad contacts Rocky in helping him out of his slump.
Donnie and Rocky make amends, and Rocky accompanies Donnie as Bianca gives birth to their daughter, Amara. When Amara is revealed to be deaf, Rocky advises him that they should not pity her condition, and instead treat her fully with their love.
Rocky and Tony "Little Duke" Evers Wood Harris take Donnie to a decrepit location in the California desert to retrain, describing it as a place where fighters are "reborn".
Donnie undergoes a rigorous and brutal training regimen with Rocky, focusing on fighting from the inside and training his body to repeatedly absorb the heavy impact he knows he will receive from Viktor in the ring.
Rocky accompanies Donnie as they hold their rematch with Viktor in Moscow; Donnie withstands Viktor's blows and wins the match after Drago throws in the towel.
Rocky doesn't join Donnie's celebration, saying that it's "his time," and watches in contentment from outside the ring. Rocky later travels to Vancouver where he reunites with Robert and meets his grandson Logan for the first time.
Rocky is now 72 years old. On July 23, , in an interview with Variety , Stallone said that a Rocky direct sequel and prequel are in development.
Producer Irwin Winkler said "We're very high on it" and those negotiations are underway for Stallone to write and star in the feature.
Stallone said the plot of the movie would be about Rocky befriending a young fighter who is an undocumented immigrant. He takes him into his life, and unbelievable adventures begin, and they wind up south of the border.
It's very, very timely. Stallone also said there are "ongoing discussions" about a Rocky prequel television series, which he hopes will land on a streaming service and the series will likely follow a young Rocky Balboa as professional boxing hopeful.
Stallone said Winkler is hesitant on making the series saying that "There was some conflict there, yes.
He felt in his mind that Rocky was primarily a feature film, and he did not see it as being translated for cable, so there was a big bone of contention.
They were married for 26 years. The two have a son, Robert Balboa Jr. After Adrian's death in , Rocky and his brother-in-law Paulie live together for a short time, then Paulie moves in with an unnamed girlfriend.
Now living completely alone again, Rocky cannot come to terms with present-day living and constantly thinks about the past.
With the help of Paulie and reunited long-time acquaintance Marie, Rocky begins to move on with his life and in the process restores his relationship with his only child, Robert.
Rocky's relationship with Marie is established as platonic in the film, but a hint of romantic interest is revealed with a kiss on the lips the night before the last fight of his life.
Balboa was also inspired by other fighting legends: Joe Frazier , for his Philadelphia origin, training methods and victory against Muhammad Ali the inspiration for Apollo Creed , and Jake LaMotta , for his Italian -inner city roots, ability to absorb many blows and his rivalry with Sugar Ray Robinson , which heavily resembled Rocky and Apollo's.
However, it was the not-so-legendary Chuck Wepner who inspired the movie and Balboa's underdog personality. Early in my acting career I realized the only way I would ever prove myself was to create my own role in my own script.
My best birthday present was a sudden revelation that I had to write the kind of screenplay that I personally enjoyed seeing.
I relished stories of heroism, great love, dignity, and courage, dramas of people rising above their stations, taking life by the throat and not letting go until they succeeded.
But I had so many ideas in my head, I couldn't focus on any one. To cheer myself up, I took the last of my entertainment money and went to see the Ali -Wepner fight on closed circuit TV.
Chuck Wepner, a battling, bruising club fighter who had never made the big time, was having his shot. It wasn't at all regarded as a serious battle.
But as the fight progressed, this miracle unfolded. He hung in there. People went absolutely crazy.
Wepner was knocked out in the 15th and final round, almost lasting the distance. We had witnessed an incredible triumph of the human spirit and we loved it.
That night, Rocky Balboa was born. People looked on him as the all-American tragedy, a man without much mentality and few social graces.
But he has deep emotion and spirituality and good patriotism. And he has a good nature, although nature has not been particularly good to him.
I have always seen him as a 20th Century gladiator in a pair of sneakers. Like so many of us, he is out of sync with the times. To all this, I injected doses of my own personal life, of my frustration at not getting anywhere.
Rocky Balboa fights as a southpaw left-handed. In the second film, against Apollo Creed, he comes out orthodox and Mickey intends for him to switch back to southpaw late in the last round, but Balboa refuses saying "no tricks, I ain't switching".
Mickey tells him that Apollo is ready for him if he continues using his right and so towards the end of the round, he does indeed lead with his left.
The real reason for this is Sylvester Stallone tore his pectoral muscles in training, [ citation needed ] but the idea was probably taken from the great left-handed boxer "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler who would sometimes come out orthodox to confuse opponents.
Rocky was an all-or-nothing brawler coming into his first bout with Creed; however, under the training of Mickey, he began to develop his boxing skills which he eventually mastered.
During his reign as world champion, he became a class hybrid fighter, possessing the qualities of an inside fighter, brawler, and swarmer.
With the exception of his rematch against Clubber Lang where he fights as an outside fighter , he often advances quickly upon his opponents, driving them into the ropes in order to attack the body.
Balboa's best attribute is without question his near-superhuman ability to absorb a multitude of the hardest hits without falling — an attribute he often employs on purpose to wear down his opponents, sacrificing defensive strategy to land his own punches.
Because of this rare talent, Balboa can afford to keep his hands in position to strike rather than up high to block.
Because he takes more punches than he throws, it is easy to overlook his incredible punching power. Rocky also has an uncanny ability to sense weakness in his opponents, often capitalizing on every shift in momentum possible.
He is acknowledged as having the most devastating body attack in the sport, with his body blows causing internal bleeding in Creed and breaking Drago's ribs.
After going two rounds with Balboa, Ivan Drago told his trainer in Russian , "He's not human, he's like a piece of iron.
Rocky Balboa was named the 7th greatest movie hero by the American Film Institute on their Years The Rocky character is immortalised with a bronze statue erected near the Rocky Steps in Philadelphia recalling the famous scene from the original Rocky movie.
In , Sylvester Stallone was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame for his work on the Rocky Balboa character, having "entertained and inspired boxing fans from around the world".
A poll of former heavyweight champions and boxing writers ranked Balboa as the best boxer in the film series. Hasbro intended to license Rocky and make him a member of the G.
Joe toyline, as they had with wrestler Sgt. Slaughter and began negotiations with Stallone's representation.
Marvel Comics ' G. Joe: Order of Battle profile book came out during the negotiations and included Rocky as a current Joe member, specializing in hand-to-hand combat training and an example of what it means to persevere under seemingly impossible odds.
Balboa also appeared on the cover of the issue. In the meantime, Stallone's agents made a deal with Coleco to produce Rambo figures in order to compete with the G.
Joe line. Hasbro, who was working on a toy prototype  at the time, decided to end negotiations at that point. Marvel ran a retraction in the third issue of the limited-run series indicating that the character was not, and never had been, a part of G.

At the same time, Rocky begins dating Adrian. Rocky helps Adrian to become more self-confident and stand up for herself. Rocky confides in Adrian before the fight that, although he figures that he may not win, he wants to at least " go the distance.
On January 1, , at the Philadelphia Spectrum , Rocky has his match with Creed, who did not take the fight seriously during training. In the first round, Rocky knocks Creed down, the first time he had ever been knocked down in his career and Creed responds by breaking Rocky's nose, the first time in his career.
Creed soon realizes that, although Rocky does not have his level of skills, he has crippling, sledgehammer-like power and is determined to keep fighting.
The match becomes a long and grueling battle for both competitors. Up into the 14th round, Rocky is nearly knocked down but manages to get back up and delivers some hard body shots, breaking Creed's ribs just before the bell.
The 15th round comes to naught and Rocky manages to pummel Creed until the bell rings once more. It is the first time an opponent had lasted the full 15 rounds against him and as a result, it ends up with a split decision , Creed wins the fight and holds on to his title.
Both combatants, battered beyond belief, agree that there would be no rematch. Rocky clearly doesn't mind about the outcome, as he only wanted to go the distance with Creed.
After the match, Adrian climbs into the ring and embraces Rocky saying, "I love you! After the match, Creed changes his mind and demands a rematch under the stress of being humiliated by the press for failing to beat Rocky convincingly, as well as his own knowledge that he didn't give his best in the match.
Creed demands a rematch with Rocky, stating that he would fight him 'anywhere, anyplace, anytime' to prove to the world that Rocky's feat was merely a fluke.
Rocky initially declines and retires from boxing, having surgery for retinal detachment , a condition that could lead to permanent blindness.
He marries Adrian, who convinces him to live outside boxing. However, Rocky, a grade-school drop-out, soon realizes that he has no white-collar skills beyond the eighth grade and, in fact, has dyslexia.
At first, Rocky seems to be unaffected by Creed's smear campaign, but his inexperience with money causes him to run into financial troubles.
Rocky struggles to find employment with decent pay, when he is fired from a commercial studio, turned down for an office job and even laid off at the Shamrock meat packing facility.
Despite Adrian's objections, and after Creed insults Rocky on national television and the newspaper, he agrees to the rematch.
Without Adrian's support, however, Rocky becomes greatly discouraged and cannot concentrate on his training whatsoever, leaving Mick frustrated and worried.
The now-pregnant Adrian goes into preterm labor on the job due to stress and slips into a coma after giving birth to her first child, Robert Jr.
When Adrian is out of the coma, she promises her full support to Rocky. Together, Mickey and Rocky train hard, focusing on Rocky's speed and improving his right-handed punching Rocky being a southpaw.
At the same time, Creed is also focused on his training, taking this match much more seriously than the previous time. The rematch is set for Thanksgiving.
The match goes on for the full 15 rounds again, with both Rocky and Creed falling to the canvas after Rocky lands a succession of left hands.
As referee Lou Fillipo exercises his count to the limit, both Creed and Rocky struggle to get back up and Creed falls back down in exhaustion.
Rocky is able to get back up from sheer determination, beating the count and winning the rematch by knockout, thus becoming heavyweight champion of the world.
Over the next three years, Rocky has successfully defended his title in ten consecutive matches against various contenders, amassing a wealthy fortune and worldwide fame in the process.
In addition, Rocky also has an exhibition match against the World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion, "Thunderlips" Hulk Hogan , with the match ending in a draw.
T , who has risen to the top of the rankings. Rocky begins having some issues with his trainer, Mickey Goldmill, due to his revelation of having faced "hand-picked" challengers that were "good fighters, but not 'killers'" which Lang seemingly is.
Mickey insists that he would step down as Rocky's manager if he chooses to fight Lang, but Rocky convinces him to train him for one last match.
However, just like Creed in the first film, Rocky does not put his heart into the training properly, and this reinforces Mickey's belief that Rocky has become too comfortable or "civilized" as champion.
Before the match, pandemonium erupts backstage, with Lang shoving Mickey out of the way during a trash-talk exchange of words with Rocky, causing Mickey to suffer from cardiac arrest.
Distraught over Lang's cold indifference, Rocky requests to call the match off, but Mickey and others urge him on, so Rocky goes to fight Lang no matter what.
During the match, Rocky's mind is not fully set, and is easily knocked out in the second round, losing his title.
After the match, Rocky visits Mickey, who then dies of a heart attack , devastating Rocky. After the funeral, a depressed Rocky wanders the streets of Philadelphia until seeing the statue at the steps.
In a fit of rage, Rocky throws his motorcycle helmet at the statue and takes off until he visits Mickey's now-abandoned gym. In the gym, Rocky meets Apollo Creed, who explains to Rocky, that when they fought, he won because that he was competitive.
He has the 'fire' Creed no longer has and the former champion convinces Rocky that he needs to get his fire "the eye of the tiger" back.
While training on the beach, Adrian and Rocky furiously debate, while Creed trains Rocky to help get him "back to basics. Fighting with a style very reminiscent of Creed's own boxing technique mixed with his own style, Rocky wins the rematch against Lang by K.
After the match, Rocky and Creed meet again in Mickey's Gym, with Creed taking his "payment" for his training services: one last rematch, just the two of them, no spectators.
Creed, past his prime but in good shape, again not taking his opponent seriously, takes a serious beating by Drago in the first round, despite Rocky's orders to stop the fight.
In the second round, Creed continues to be brutally beaten by Drago, falling limp in the ring and dying. Feeling responsible for Creed's death and riddled with guilt by Drago's cold indifference, Rocky decides to take on Drago himself, but to do so, he has to surrender his championship.
Rocky travels to the cold mountains of Russia and undergoes rigorous training, even after being berated by Adrian, who said that Rocky couldn't win against such a vile man like Drago.
After much needed training, his match against Drago takes place on Christmas Day in Moscow. With Evers assuming the role as his new trainer, Rocky trains hard using old-school methods within the mountainous terrain of Krasnoyarsk , Siberia , while Drago trains with state-of-the-art equipment and steroid enhancement.
During the match, Drago gains the upper hand in the early moments, but in the second round, Rocky strikes back against Drago with a haymaker to the eye, cutting him.
The match goes on in a bloody back-and-forth battle, with the Soviet crowd, who originally roots for Drago, beginning to cheer for Rocky, while Drago's handler becomes increasingly upset over his inability to finish Rocky.
In the end, Rocky's superior stamina and determination to win perseveres and defeats the heavily favored Russian in the fifteenth round.
After the match, Rocky gives a passionate 'thank you' speech to the crowd while receiving a standing ovation both from the crowd and the politicians in attendance.
Shortly after the bout with Ivan Drago, Rocky realizes that while he is showering, he may have sustained some type of injury during the fight.
His hands tremble relentlessly, and he tells Adrian that he is tired and wants to go home, but accidentally addresses her as Mickey. They challenge him to a title fight called "Lettin' it Go in Tokyo.
Once returning home, Rocky goes to say goodnight to his son, Robert Jr. Paulie unknowingly had Rocky sign a power of attorney over to Rocky's investment accountant, who had embezzled and squandered all of his money on real estate deals gone sour.
Unwilling to go bankrupt, Rocky decides to participate in a few more fights, including the one against Union Cane, but Adrian demands that Rocky should see a doctor first.
Rocky's doctor, Presley Jensen, reveals that Rocky is suffering from a condition called Cavum septi pellucidi , which is brain damage caused by extremely heavy blows to the head.
The effects are seemingly permanent and irreversible. With such a condition, it would make it impossible for Rocky to continue boxing in any state.
At Adrian's urging, as well as with the doctor's support, Rocky gravely acknowledges that it is time to retire and he reluctantly does so.
His only remaining asset is the now-closed Mickey's Gym, which had been willed by Mickey to Robert, making it virtually untouchable by the IRS.
After selling their mansion and auctioning some of their belongings, Rocky and the family now return to the old neighborhood, moving back into Adrian and Paulie's old house in South Philadelphia.
Rocky asks Adrian, "Did we ever leave this place? Tommy slowly becomes an excellent fighter, but suffers from constantly being put in Rocky's shadow; he is nicknamed "Rocky's Robot" by the media.
As Rocky is training Tommy, he becomes so distracted that he ends up neglecting Robert. On Christmas Eve, Tommy visits the Balboa residence and tells Rocky he wants to team up with Duke, but Rocky explains that dealing with Duke would be a dirty business.
Adrian attempts to comfort Rocky, but Rocky's frustration boils over. After they reconcile, Rocky meets Robert and they finally pick up the pieces.
Rocky is still anxious as he watches the match with Tommy facing off against Union Cane on television with Paulie.
As the match starts out small, Rocky begins to emote through the first couple of seconds of the fight as Cane becomes effective in hurting Tommy.
As Tommy begins to make his adjustments as Rocky taught him, Rocky then mirrors his punches on a punching bag, which leaves his family concerned.
Tommy wins the world heavyweight title from Union Cane by knockout. However, Tommy is booed and ridiculed in the press conference, since he had never gone up against a "real contender" he is not regarded as a real champion or heir to the belt.
This motivates Tommy, with prodding from Duke, to publicly challenge Rocky to a fight. While Rocky is at a local bar, Tommy steps in and insults Rocky.
Paulie insults Tommy back and is sucker-punched by Tommy. Rocky confronts Tommy and challenges him by saying "you knocked him down, why don't you try knocking me down?
When Duke intervenes and says that Tommy "only fights in the ring", Rocky explains to him that his "ring's outside". As both fighters head to the alley, Duke tries to persuade Tommy to not fight a street fighter , but Tommy squares upon him, saying that he does not own him and wants his respect.
Rocky then quickly starts to beat Tommy without giving him a chance, knocking him down. Rocky tells Tommy that, even though he admires him, he actually ruined their relationship.
With Rocky's back turned, Tommy sucker punches him and starts attacking some of the bystanders on the side.
Tommy gains the upper hand and tackles Rocky through a steel door into the street. The two engage in a street fight, which quickly garners the attention of the media, while also catching Robert and Adrian's attention as well.
As the neighborhood gathers round to witness the fight, Tommy's punches begin to slow Rocky in his tracks due to his condition and he is knocked down, disoriented with Paulie at his side.
Tommy is then restrained from finishing Rocky off. Glimpses of Ivan Drago, his loss to Clubber Lang during his first fight with him and Mickey's burial start to cloud his mind until he hears Mickey's voice, telling him that he is the champion and to get up.
As Tommy walks away, convinced that he finally got what he wanted, Rocky rises up and calls him out for one more round and Tommy happily obliges.
An adamant Duke reminds Tommy that if he loses this, he will terminate their association. In a shocking turn of events, Rocky uses his brawling abilities to punish and humiliate Tommy.
With his back against a gate, Rocky dodges several hooks from Tommy and manages to push him towards the gate, shoving him with brute force and a powerful left hook knocking Tommy down again.
Duke threatens to sue Rocky if he touches him and becomes infuriated at Tommy. Tommy gets up and tackles Rocky to the ground and later lifts him up.
Just as Robert joins the crowd, Rocky breaks free from Tommy's grip and performs a reversal that sends Tommy spiraling into a pile of trash cans.
Both men now exchange punches with Rocky being the aggressor, making Tommy miss his shots. Rocky is then caught by a series of punches by Tommy, just as Adrian joins the crowd, but manages to parry Tommy and begins to walk him down with his devastating shots.
As Adrian and Robert tend to him, Rocky tells Adrian that she was right. The neighborhood's cheer is then silenced by Duke as he tries to sarcastically commend Rocky.
He confronts Duke, who still continues to threaten him with a lawsuit. Since Rocky and his family have been declared bankrupt, Rocky clenches his fist and uppercuts Duke to the gut which lifts him off the ground, sending him to the hood of his own limousine, telling him "Sue me for what?
Rocky, Adrian, Robert, and Paulie walk away in good spirits as the neighborhood continues to cheer him on. Some time later, Rocky and his son run up the Philadelphia Museum of Art , where Rocky gives him a valuable possession of Mickey Goldmill's that had been passed on to him by Rocky Marciano.
