Mostly Rocky's boxing career is going nowhere since he wins and loses fights in a local boxing club in Arlington. Until Undefeated Heavyweight Champion Apollo Creed who defended the title for six years and has successful 17 title defense is planning a huge boxing match against Mackley Green in January 1 America's Birthday. Since Green got injured with his right hand and out of the fight and his promoter told Creed all ranked are all booked up and half of them can't get in shape for six weeks.
