Rocky Balboa is a struggling Philadelphia boxer who is scorned by his gym's owner, patronized by a local loan shark and rebuffed by a shy plain-Jane, whose brother keeps trying to engineer a romantic match. Heavyweight champion Apollo Creed comes up with the Bicentennial gimmick of touting a new fight as the chance for a nobody to become a somebody while planning to easily win the bout himself. But someone forgets to tell Rocky, who trains earnestly for the fight, and comes out swinging.
