When Chuck Wepner decked Muhammad Ali in the ninth round of their 1975 world title fight, a boxing fan who took notice was a struggling actor/writer named Sylvester Stallone, who immediately began writing a screenplay called “Rocky.” The rest is history — not only for Stallone, but also for Wepner, the hardscrabble New Jersey pug who subsequently became a part of boxing lore.

On the April 23 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, we interviewed not only Chuck Wepner, but also the A-List actor who portrays Wepner in the new motion picture, “Chuck,” Liev Schreiber of “Ray Donovan” fame.

We’re sharing these memorable interviews today on a special edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to help introduce ourselves to our new audience at thegruelingtruth.net.

The regular edition of our show will be posted at thegruelingtruth.net every Sunday evening, sometime after 5:30 p.m. Pacific, 6:30 Mountain, 7:30 Central, 8:30 Eastern.
