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)
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.
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: The smaller quicker fighter that Rocky is sparring with before the fight is real life champion Roberto Duran.
