Rocky Balboa, a small-time boxer, gets a supremely rare chance to fight heavy-weight champion Apollo Creed in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect.
Rocky is not the character's actual name. His real name is Robert Balboa - this was seen in a rough script from the second film. He took the nickname from real-life boxer Rocky Marciano.
