Plot Outline:

Was Chuck Wepner the inspiration behind Sylvester Stallone's Oscar-winning Rocky? Wepner's life - from his bouts with Sonny Liston and Muhammed Ali to wrestling Andre the Giant and even a bear - all seem to make it clear he has as good a claim as anyone to be proclaimed "The Real Rocky". -- Chris Kavan

A look into the life of Check Wepner - boxer, liquor distributor and, as the title suggests, probably a great inspiration to Sylvester Stallone and his Rocky films. Presented as a kind of working-class hero/boxer Wepner had his troubles, but after years of staying silent, finally decided he deserved some credit. Good job once again ESPN.
