The final fight between Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) might be the most iconic final fight ever featured on film. Why? The fight tells the story of a likable underdog getting his chance to challenge the likable undefeated heavyweight champion of the world. It’s a thrilling fight, and undoubtedly helped the film win Best Picture at the 1977 Oscars. In this episode, we discuss low budget filmmaking, gut punches and Apollo’s beautiful jab. Enjoy!
