Real Life Rocky was actually at the fight that the story was based on

My autobiography coming out later this year has a theme that a REAL life Rocky ( me)defies the odds and knocks out wall street. I explained recently that Rocky was based on Ali and Wepner and I was ringside at the ALI wepner fight. Of course i was met with skepticism and called an out and out liar by more than one person. However thankfully this clip around the 7:38 mark clearly shows me and Joe Lanese Jr sitting in the 5th row between ali and wepner. I have an autograph that night from Redd Foxx who was sitting near me before he was announcing and said “dummy” for me .lol

Joe JR dad told us both he would give us 1000 each if Wepner won. My first big score almost happened as i saw Ali down. But of course he slipped. Not only did Wepner not come close to winning but he took a tremendous beating and went right to an Akron Hospital

he ALI-WEPNER FIGHT on 24 Mar. 1975 was the first major boxing match in Cleveland since the SCHMELING-STRIBLING FIGHT of 1931. The uneven contest matched the reigning heavyweight champion of the world, Mohammed Ali (formerly Cassius Clay), against Chuck Wepner, a liquor salesman from Bayonne, NJ. Because Wepner was not among the World Boxing Council’s top 10 contenders, the contest was not sanctioned as a title match, but it was promoted as if it were by the flamboyant local promoter, Don King. The fight, held at the Richfield Coliseum, was preceded by a televised bout between George Foreman and Oscar Bonavena; both spectacles were seen at the Coliseum and 98 locations in Greater Cleveland via closed circuit TV, and broadcast throughout the world. Regardless of the outcome, Ali was guaranteed $1.5 million and Wepner $100,000; ticket prices ranged from $10-$75, and 4,200 were quickly sold.

When Ali arrived in Cleveland 10 days prior to the fight, he was out of condition, but he jogged through the Metroparks and focused attention on his religion by underwriting a mosque in the Lee-Harvard area. Before 14,000 fans, Ali employed his game plan for 9 rounds until Wepner stepped on his toe, causing him to fall. Ali turned on his opponent, scoring a technical knockout in round 15, as the referee ended the fight when Wepner obviously was too weak to continue. Wepner was sent to an Akron hospital, while Ali basked in victory.

“What I saw was pretty extraordinary. 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.”

stallone said that on the rocky dvd

But, despite all this public admiration, Chuck Wepner still wasnt happy. He claimed that Sylvester Stallone had gone back on a promise to pay him for being Rocky’s inspiration, but Stallone in turn claimed that Wepner had already made enough money from making appearances as ‘the real Rocky.’

In 2006 Lawyers for Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Wepner filed notice that the lawsuit had been settled for undisclosed terms.

wow its been almost 40 years and i actually was dressed nice that night . Go figure

A brilliant person shared this with me. All my life all I wanted was to be”myself”. After 50 plus years I can say I don’t think the world has yet changed me. I just hope and pray I don’t grow complacent. Share this if it resonates with you like it does me.

CBS Releases Unaired Footage Of Obama Refusing To Call Benghazi A Terror Attack

The above video is from a September 12 interview “60 Minutes” did with President Obama in the wake of the terror attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. CBS decided against airing this segment in their original broadcast but released it on Sunday night, just two days before the election.

In the interview, Obama would not clearly say whether he thought the attack was terrorism. Transcript below.

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?

OBAMA: Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.

KROFT: It’s been described as a mob action, but there are reports that they were very heavily armed with grenades, that doesn’t sound like your normal demonstration.

OBAMA: As I said, we’re still investigating exactly what happened, I don’t want to jump the gun on this. But your right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt. And my suspicion is there are folks involved in this. Who were looking to target Americans from the start. So we’re gonna make sure that our first priority is to get our folks out safe, make sure our embassies are secured around the world and then we are going to go after those folks who carried this out.

KROFT: There have been reports, obviously this isn’t the first time…there have been attacks on the consulate before. There was an attack against the British ambassador. Do you…this occurred on Sept. 11. Can you tell me why the ambassador was in Benghazi yesterday? Was it to evaluate security at the consulate?

OBAMA: Well keep in mind Chris Stevens is somebody that was one of the first Americans on the ground when we were in the process of saving Benghazi and providing the opportunity for Libyans to create their own democracy. So this is somebody who had been courageous, had been on the ground, had helped to advise me and Secretary Clinton when we were taking our actions against Muammar Qaddafi. And is somebody who is very familiar with the train. He was doing the work that he does as a diplomat helping to shape our policies in the region at a time when things are still fairly fragile. But I think it’s important to note that we have a Libyan government in place that is fully cooperative, that sees the United States as a friend that recognizes we played an important role in liberating Libya and providing the Libyan people an opportunity to forge their own destiny. And in fact we had Libyans who helped protect our diplomats when they were under attack. But this is a country that is still rebuilding in the aftermath of Qaddafi. They don’t necessarily always have the same capabilities that countries with more established governments might have in helping to provide protection to our folks. But beyond that, what I want to do is make sure that we know exactly what happened, how it happened, who perpetrated this action, then we’ll act accordingly.
