About This Quiz

The Rocky series is a collection of seven films centered around the sport of boxing. It stars Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa, an everyday man who trained his butt off to be just like his idol, Rocky Marciano. Since the first movie, the Italian Stallion has been going up against competitor after competitor to prove he was number one. 

If you're a huge fan of the franchise, you'll know that Creed is the first movie where Rocky doesn't star as a fighter, but mentors the illegitimate son of the legendary boxer, Apollo Creed. In this film, we see an old Rocky who learns he has cancer and has to fight for his life again, this time, against an opponent who has no hands. But you already knew this right? 

As of now, an eighth film (Creed II) is in production and will feature one of Rocky's previous opponents (Ivan Drogo). And while we have a bit of a wait before this one is released, you don't have to wait a second longer to test your Rocky knowledge. Will you be able to stand side by side with Rocky, or will you be kicked out of the ring for being a failure? Let's find out.
