At the conclusion, in the first round of the main event, the announcer states Rocky lands 9 of 13 punches, but he clearly throws more, roughly 30 punches thrown and he lands roughly 25.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Rocky applied for a boxing license in Rocky V, he was denied, as the doctors stated he had irreversible brain damage. In this movie, according to the licensing board, Rocky passed all of his medical exams with "flying colors." They cannot both be correct at the same time. However, Sylvester Stallone has addressed this in interviews, stating that the standards of acceptable health for boxing could have changed over time - and Rocky IS completely fit by modern standards. Additionally, he never got a second opinion and yielded to Adrian's advice to quit to protect his health.

During the scene when Steps is looking over Rocky's collection of championships and photos, it has title belts on the wall that Rocky never actually won in his career. However, 16 years have passed between Rocky V and this film (in which we don't see the events), and it is entirely possible that, in the time between films, Rocky managed additional fighters and THEY won the awards in question.

After the pre-fight prayer with Spider Rico, Rocky calls Spider Rico 'Pedro'. Spider Rico is played by Pedro Lovell. "Spider" is clearly a nickname, so it is possible the character's name is Pedro "Spider" Rico. As Tony Burton plays a character named Tony "Duke" Evers, and many other actors in the Rocky movies use their given names as their character names, this is not outside the realm of possibility.

Plot holes 

When Rocky Fights Dixon it shows his record as 57-23-1. He was 44-20 going into his first match with Apollo. He lost to Apollo, then beat him, then had 10 title defense victories. His record at that point was 55-21. After splitting with Clubber Lang he was 56-22. One more fight against Drago makes 57-22. The draw could have been the fight with Thunderlips in Rocky III, but where did the additional defeat come from?

Revealing mistakes 

In the montage for Mason before the fight, you can see "Tarver" on his trunks in at least one of the clips. Antonio Tarver is the name of the boxer who played Mason.
