Chuck Wepner attends red carpet screening of “Chuck” in Philadelphia

Philadelphia, Pa. – Chuck Wepner appeared at a red carpet screening of the biographical sports drama, “Chuck,” Thursday evening at the Prince Theater in Philadelphia. 

He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber) was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It’s the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame—but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by a committed performance from Liev Schreiber, Chuck is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption. Elisabeth Moss and Naomi Watts costar.

“A lot of people fall down,” Wepner told YC when asked what advice he would give to a hopeful young person with big dreams. “Dust yourselves off and get back up.” 

When asked what caught him by surprise in the film, whether it be a memory or a specific moment, Wepner replied “I never realized what a real bastard I was.”

The film opens in Philadelphia today.
