Millions watched a moive. One man lived it.

Uncover the story of the "Real Rocky," Chuck Wepner, the man who went almost the full 15 rounds with Ali in 1975 to inspire the Oscar-winning movie. Chuck Wepner is a liquor salesman from Bayonne, NJ who drives a Cadillac with "Champ" vanity plates. A former New Jersey State Heavyweight Boxing Champion, he took abuse from Sonny Liston, got his nose broken by Muhammad Ali, and inspired Sylvester Stallone to write Rocky which won three Academy Awards. Wepner was left out of the Rocky glory, and his career took turn after strange turn as he worked to stay in the spotlight: he went on to fight Andre the Giant as "The Assassin" and boxed a 900 pound bear. Twice.

Director Jeff Feuerzeig tells Wepner's real-life story, which in many ways, is actually more captivating than the one that has raked in more than $1 billion.
