Plot summary

(6 votes)

Rocky beats many opponents and fights Hulk Hogan in a Wrestler vs. Boxer charity match. They tie and Rocky retires. The town carves a statue of him and puts it at the top of the stairs. At the announcement Clubber Lang challenges Rocky to a fight. Rock accepts and slacks off on his training. Before the match Mick has a heart attack. Rocky loses in the second round and Mick dies. Rocky asks for a rematch.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before the second fight with Clubber and just after the pre-fight brawl, when the camera switches to the shot of Rocky and Apollo you can see a director's chair at the top left of the screen with "Mr. T" written on it. (01:22:50)

Question: Why is Clubber Lang allowed to box professionally, considering that his favorite KO punch seems to be right to the back of the head while the opponent is on their knees?

Answer: Clubber Lang worked his way up the professional ranks. If you notice, the challanger is still able to fight, the referee uses his own discresion to ignore the final punch as the match would have been called in Langs favour anyway
