Buddy Shaw was a boxer that fought Rocky Balboa. He was from New York City, New York, and was ranked 5th among heavyweight contenders in 1975.

When Mac Lee Green was forced to drop out of a scheduled fight with Apollo Creed due to a hand injury, Apollo suggested Shaw as an alternative, but was was told that Shaw had moved to California and gained 50 pounds.

After a 10 year retirement from boxing, Buddy Shaw lost an incredible amount of weight, and he attempted to make a comeback and win the heavyweight title from Union Cane. Unfortunately for Shaw, he retired after a loss to Mac Lee Green.
