(crowd cheering)

(commentator) It's blind instinct.

But now it is Creed coming back

with the left hand!

What's keeping these two guys up?

A tremendous closing moment!

Here comes Balboa back, but

the champion's back with another left.

A right hand! It's Creed.

Now it's Balboa! Now it's Creed.

A tremendous left by Rocky.

They're dead in the centre, toe to toe!

(cheering)

(woman screams)

One!

Two!

Creed will retain the title.

If neither gets up, Creed will win the title.

- Four!

- Get up, my man.

God!

Six.

Each fighter is trying to beat the count!

Get up there!

Eight!

- Nine!

- The champ is down.

Ten!

He's done it at the last second!

He made it!

Rocky Balboa has shocked the world!

He is the new heavyweight

champion of the world!

Ladies and gentlemen...

...in a stunning upset,

scoring a win by knockout...

...the new heavyweight

champion of the world...

...Rocky Balboa!

(Rocky) Excuse me. Excuse me.

I just wanna say one thing...

to my wife, who's home.

Yo, Adrian. I did it!

I love you. I love you.

(# "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor)

# Risin' up, back on the street

# Did my time, took my chances

# Went the distance

Now I'm back on my feet

# Just a man and his will to survive

# So many times, it happens too fast

# You change your passion for glory

# Don't lose your grip

On the dreams of the past

# You must fight just to keep them alive

# It's the eye of the tiger

It's the thrill of the fight

# Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

# And the last known survivor

Stalks his prey in the night

# And he's watching us all with the eye

# Of the tiger

# Face to face, out in the heat

# Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry

# They stack the odds

Still we take to the street

# For the kill, with the skill to survive

# It's the eye of the tiger

It's the thrill of the fight

# Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

# And the last known survivor

Stalks his prey in the night

# And he's watching us all with the eye...

# Of the tiger

# Risin' up, straight to the top

# Had the guts, got the glory

# Went the distance

Now I'm not gonna stop

# Just a man and his will to survive

# It's the eye of the tiger

It's the thrill of the fight

# Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

# And the last known survivor

Stalks his prey in the night

# And he's watching us all with the eye...

# Of the tiger

# The eye of the tiger

# The eye of the tiger

I want Balboa. I want Balboa.

You hear that, old man? You tell Balboa.

Nobody can beat me. Tell him what I said.

And he's next. I'm gonna kill him.

Nobody can stop me.

You tell Balboa that. I'm comin' after him.

I want a shot at the title if Balboa's

got the guts to meet me in the ring.

My whole life's been directed

towards this title.

I live alone. I train alone.

I'll win the title alone. I want him.

He can't duck me forever.

He can run, but he can't hide.

Another southpaw,

champion Rocky Balboa...

... isn't worried about much these days.

He's defended his title for the tenth time...

... and will face the world heavyweight

wrestling champion in a charity benefit...

... with all the proceeds

to go to a local youth foundation.

I'll have to give him credit. Mr Balboa

stays busy. He's a true sportsman.

It looks like the no. 1 contender, Clubber

Lang, will have to play the waiting game.

But that should be a great match-up.

(man) Paulie, take it easy, OK?

(barman) Hey, you goin'?

Hey,

don't forget to give Rocky my best, huh?

You know, I've been comin' here years.

How 'bout you give me,

Paulie, your best once?

Take it easy, Paulie.
