Chuck Wepner (Schreiber) is a liquor salesman and father, but his modest prizefighting career is his passion. Always an underachiever, his life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on Muhammad Ali in a highly publicized title fight. Rocketed to sudden fame after going 15 rounds in the ring, he becomes the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, and even becomes the inspiration for the character Rocky Balboa. However, as his fame begins to fade, he has to decide what he is willing to do to keep it.
