A small-time boxer from working-class Philadelphia, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), is arbitrarily chosen to take on the reigning world heavyweight champion, (Carl Weathers) Apollo Creed , when the undefeated fighter's scheduled opponent is injured. While training with feisty former bantamweight contender Mickey Goldmill (Burgess Meredith), Rocky tentatively begins a relationship with (Talia Shire) Adrian, the wallflower sister of his meat-packer pal  (Burt Young)Paulie.
