Fans of the “Rocky” movies have a lot to cheer about right now. Chuck “The Real Rocky” Wepner, the boxer who inspired Sylvester Stallone to write the Rocky script after watching the March 24, 1975 Muhammad Ali-Chuck Wepner fight, is being featured in several productions all fans can enjoy. ESPN’s 30 by 30 series of documentaries recently produced “The Real Rocky” (airs Oct. 25th) and “The Bleeder”, starring Leiv Schreiber portraying Wepner, will hit theaters in 2012. “The Bleeder” is not another Rocky movie,” Wepner said. “It’s a movie about the Real Rocky”.
Wepner’s life story has truly been an amazing tale of strength, failures, success and love. These experiences have shaped him into the true champion that he has always been. But times are different now, and Wepner is stepping back into the ring with a company called “WeGoLook.com”.
