After winning the ultimate title and being the world champion, Rocky falls into a hole and finds himself picked up by a former enemy.
In his interview with Jonathan Ross, Sylvester Stallone ranked Rocky III as a nine.
The worst thing that happened to you, that can happen to any fighter: you got civilized.
Before the final fight, the crowd scenes contain the picture boards of Rocky and Apollo in the background, making it obvious that it is the same crowd footage from Rocky II (1979).
"Rocky" is actually displayed on screen three separate times at the start of the film (first scrolling onto the screen from right to left (along with the number III), then spelled out with fireworks, and finally in simple text at the bottom right of the screen (again with III), several minutes later).
Late 2000's/early 2010's AMC broadcasts in the US used the sped-up 25 fps PAL video from a 24 fps film source. However, current AMC broadcasts in the US now slow down the film's original audio pitch and speed at 4%.
