Continuity mistake: When Apollo Creed is approaching the ring for the rematch at the end of the film, his robe starts off done-up, next shot shows it undone and the towel around his neck loose, and then in the last shot it's back to being neat again with the robe done up. Even when he enters the ring it's all neat and tidy. (01:32:40)
Rocky and Apollo both fall to the floor in the 15th round after Rocky catches Apollo with a good punch, Rocky beats the 10 count by getting to his feet on 9, while Apollo slumps back down. Rocky wins the title.
Employment Manager: Can I be honest? No one's going to offer you an office job. There's too much competition. Why don't you fight? I read somewhere you're a very good fighter.
Rocky Balboa: Yeah, well, was ya ever punched in the face 500 times a night? It stings after a while, ya know.
Trivia: An estimated 800 children from a local school were used as extras for the scene in which Rocky runs through Philadelphia.
