I keep getting asked how I feel about Sylvestor Stallone being in the Boxing Hall of Fame.
1) Congratulations to Mike! I'm sorry I wasn't there to see him inducted this year. He deserves it.
2) I like that Rocky gave an uplift to boxing as a whole. In that respect, I would have liked to see the writers, all producers and all actors inducted, as a whole. Maybe the whole Rocky film staff.
I think the guy the movie was based on The Bayonee Bleeder, Chuck Wepner, who is in the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame, should have been represented.
His 1975 fight in Cleveland with Ali was legendary!
Because I'm doing my own movie now, that's all I'll say.
