R | | Biography, Drama, Sport
A drama inspired by the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner, who had a once in a lifetime bout with Muhammad Ali that would inspire the film, Rocky (1976).
Chuck tells Linda the bartender that she takes a good license photo, but New Jersey didn't start putting photos on licenses until the late 1990s.
Chuck Wepner served his prison time in East Jersey State Prison in Rahway, NJ, not Northern State Prison in Newark, NJ, as depicted in the movie. This is where he met Sylvester Stallone while filming "Lock Up" in 1989.
