He’s right over here.
We had to separate him. He was fighting with the other inmates.
Hey Donnie. Your father was a great man to me.
I don’t know him. Ain’t got nothing to do with me.
Well, I think you could be great too. So, what made you wanna fight?
My pop was a fighter, died before I was born. Bounced around foster care, in and out of
juvy. I’ve been fighting my whole life.
It’s not a choice for me. You see this guy here, staring back at you?
-It’s your toughest opponent. -Who’s next?
I believe that’s true in the ring, and I think that’s true in life.
Boom! Boom! Boom! So you’re gonna leave me too?
You know how many times I had to carry the heavyweight champion of the world
up these stairs because he couldn’t walk? Ribs broken, nose broken, eyes swollen shut.
What are you afraid of? I’m afraid of taking on a name and losing.
They’ll call me a fraud. You’re still caught in his shadow.
Every move that I make, Every punch that I throw,
Everything’s gonna be compared to him. You are Apollo Creed’s son so use the name.
It’s yours. This kid’s been nowhere, he’s never faced
nobody. You don’t know nothing about me.
You’re a false Creed. You do this, you’re going into a storm.
What’s wrong with you? Hey, hey, somebody help!
Rocky’s sick. If I break, I ain’t gonna fix it.
Everything I got is moved on. And I’m here.
You’re sitting here crying about nobody’s around for you
I’m here for you every day! I’m standing right
in front of you! Just like any other fight.
So if I fight, you fight. Bring back everything that’s ever hurt you
All the pain you had inside. Then he’ll know what we’ve been through.
You belong here. You should be able to grab one of these birds.
-You serious? -I am serious.
Chickens are slowing down.
