Rocky -- Rocky Balboa is a struggling Philadelphia boxer who is scorned by his gym's owner, patronized by a loan shark and rebuffed by a shy 'plain-Jane', whose butcher brother keeps engineering a romantic match.  Rocky would have remained in this rut had not heavyweight champion Apollo Creed come up with the Bicentennial gimmick to give a chance for a 'nobody' to become a 'somebody'.  The "Italian Stallion" trains earnestly and goes the distance...against all odds!
Rocky -- A small time boxer gets a once in a lifetime chance to fight the heavyweight champ in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect.

Quotes:
From Rocky III (1982)
Title announcer: We'd like to announce the presence at ringside of a true champion; the Master of Disaster, the Count of Monte Fisto, the one, the only Apollo Creed!
[Creed enters the ring and walks over to Lang]
Clubber Lang: [slaps Creed's hand away] Get out of my face! I don't need no has-beens in my corner. And you better wipe that look off your face before I knock it off. You wanna jump, JUMP! Come on! Come on, Creed! Come on!
Apollo Creed: [Creed walks away to speak to Rocky] Do everybody a favor and knock this chump out.
