Rocky is a Philadelphia club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But as fate would have it, World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Creed chooses him to be his opponent for the big 4th of July bout. For Creed, the match is little more than an exhibition - he needs his five minutes of glory, but for Rocky it’s his one big moment.
