"The script for the film - which is based on George Foreman's comeback bout - is 'Beautiful'"

"George, after getting whupped by Spinks, just sort of walked away from boxing and gained weight, took up charity work, but then one day discovered that the money had run out for the charity and himself. Nobody would give him a loan, and his friends told him that his ship had sailed. He just didn't have anything anymore. He was an overweight, out of shape, middle aged man of questionable diminished fame."

"George decided to go back to boxing, mainly small club fights, tiny venues, people calling him a joke, but he was winning, and around that 16th fight, people started to take notice, things began to turn around."

"Stallone wants to basically tell that story, the has-been giving it a run story, but he also has in ROCKY 6 a character that he's heading towards fighting, a new champ, which represents the modern black athlete which is very different from the Apollo Creeds or Alis of yesteryear."

" 'Rocky Balboa' is about everybody who feels they want to participate in the race of life, rather than be a bystander," Stallone said in a statement... "You're never too old to climb a mountain, if that's your desire."
