Plot summary

(6 votes)

After Rocky goes the distance with Apollo Creed, he returns to his everyday life. He retires from boxing, marries Adrian, but had trouble finding a real job. Meanwhile, Apollo Creed loses the respect of the boxing world for not beating an amateur like Rocky, and dismisses the fight as a fluke, challenging Rocky to a rematch. Adrian disapproves of Rocky fighting again, but when she falls into a coma giving birth, she inspires Rocky. Rocky trains again, and defeats Creed in the final round, becoming Champion of the World.

Continuity mistake: In the first round of the fight, Apollo Creed decks Rocky. When Rocky falls, he lands in the neutral (yellow) corner, but when he gets up he is standing in his own (black) corner. (01:36:55)

Question: What made Apollo change his mind about wanting a rematch?

MikeH

Answer: Creed won the fight, but watched as the media and the public viewed it as a questionable victory. At the end of the fight, Rocky had defeated him, and the only reason he was still standing was that Rocky was holding him up to keep punching him. Creed had a huge ego, and couldn't stand people thinking he only technically won.
