Thirty years after the ring of the first bell, Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement and dons his gloves for his final fight; against the reigning heavyweight champ Mason 'The Line' Dixon.
In 1984, "Weird Al" Yankovic made a song called "Theme from Rocky XIII" parodying Survivor's "The Eye of the Tiger" that told of Rocky no longer boxing but now owning a deli and catering service. Parts of the story-line of this movie mirror this ... ...
Yet another quick knockout for Mason Dixon, almost perfunctory; the fans let him know how they feel about it.
At the end of round two, when the bell rings, Rocky's trainer Duke jumps through the ropes and falls into the ring. The towel on his shoulder hangs on the ropes. The next scene showing Rocky in his corner has Duke going through the ropes again with the towel still on his shoulder.
The first set of end credits features fans of all ages running up the front steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The second set of credits features a shot of Rocky standing alone at the top of the steps.
