“The Real Rocky” Gets His Due

Aug 8, 2006, 1:59 PM EDT

From the AP Wire:

Stallone has said that he had been working on a screenplay about a
fighter when he watched Wepner, improbably, nearly go the distance with
heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali in 1975.

"What I saw was pretty extraordinary," Stallone said during a 2001
interview that became part of a "Rocky" anniversary DVD. "I saw a man
they call ‘the Bayonne Bleeder‘ who didn’t have a chance at all against
the greatest fighting machine supposedly that ever lived."

Now that is a boxing nickname.
