“Rocky Balboa” has grown to be one of my all time favorite movies. Definitely my favorite Rocky movie of all time (and I love all of them… except #5). The scene below is a one of the main reasons why I love this film so much, and the message this scene carries is hard hitting for me. (pun maybe intended) Watch this scene and then check out my thoughts.
You might notice that Rocky is wearing a “Dempsey” t-shirt under his jacket. Former Heavyweight Champion Jack Dempsey once said:
“A champion is someone who gets up, even when he can’t.”
