In the aftermath of his celebrated exhibition match with World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Creed, Rocky enjoys his success. He marries his sweetheart Adrian, buys her an expensive fox fur, a sports car for himself, and a luxurious new home. When a projected stint in T.V. commercials fails because he is unable to remember his lines and cannot read the "dummy cards" being held for him, Rocky is forced to work as a meat porter. When the abattoir later makes him redundant Adrian, now pregnant, tries to support them by working in a pet shop. Rocky believes he has no future as a boxer and accepts a menial job at the gym run by his former trainer Mickey. Apollo Creed, however, angered by repeated taunts that his last fight with Rocky was fixed, is eager for a re-match. Adrian is against it, and doctors have warned Rocky that with his injured eye another fight could seriously damage his sight.
