The good thing about the Rocky films are that each one is based loosely on a fighter in heavyweight boxing history, if Rocky was based on Chuck Wepners fight with Muhammad Ali and Rocky 2 is based on James J Braddock beating Max Baer. Rocky III is based on Floyd Patterson vs Sonny Liston (different ending admittedly) Rocky IV is based on um...
give that one a miss, Rocky V can be based on umpteen boxing stories but this one has a sniff of the George Foreman comeback. So Rocky aprt from the fourth always has a ring of truth about it.
Mason 'Dixon' Line is former world light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver.
All accounts up till now it is a good film and the 19th is booked in my diary (if I had a diary that is)
