After his scheduled opponent backs out of a match against the reigning world heavy weight champion (Carl Weathers), the consummate showman decides to stage a fight against a local boxer and give him a Cinderella shot at the coveted belt. That is when an underdog contender named Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) steps into the ring. (And like the hero in the movie, the novice actor and his ensuing film franchise went on to win big at the box office as well.)
