The Real Rocky
A new documentary is out about boxer Chuck Wepner A.K.A. “The Bayonne Bleeder” who was the inspiration for Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky” films but never got a cut of the billion-dollar franchise. Naturally, Wepner was also inspired by the films… inspired to sue.
“The Real Rocky” premiered on ESPN on October 25th, but check local listings for re-screening.
