One of the best boxing movies I have ever watched. The movie seems so much like "Rocky" because it was based on Chuck Wepner's life. He may not be remembered by many fight fans, but he may just be best remembered for the movie about his life "Chuck"J!

A true story of prize fighter Chuck Wepner upon whose life much of the original film Rocky was based on. The life of a prize fighter is not pretty and in this case you might call it amazing. The actors play Sylvester Stallone and Mohamed Ali are stunningly right on. "Chuck", I was rooting for you the entire movie!
