Rocky (1976)

Question: When they promote the fight, why do they say January 1st is America's birthday?

Answer: They mean the entire year, 1976, is America's birth "day," being the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence. So the fight, taking place on January 1, is the "first sporting event on our two hundredth birthday."
