He claimed to end up being the motivation for the Rocky films, and fought 15 very long and hard rounds against Muhammad Ali in 1975. He put together a profession record of 35-14-2. He was a bouncer in a golf club before going after his boxing profession. While he stated the Rocky movies were predicated on his existence, inventor Sylvester Stallone vehemently disagrees. He was wedded 3 x. His third wife is usually Linda Wepner. Although he dropped the battle, he gained a huge amount of respect for just how he competed against the fantastic Muhammad Ali.

|6||Wepner, a professional boxer, gained a following in the Bayonne, New Jersey, area, after never having been knocked down in more than 130 fights. Boxing promoter Don King heard about him and set up a championship match in 1975 between Wepner and champ Muhammad Ali, figuring Wepner would be not much more than a sparring partner for Ali, who would knock him out after a few rounds. To everyone's surprise, Wepner not only made it into the 15th round but actually floored Ali with one punch in the ninth round. Ali came back, however, and TKO'd Wepner at 2:41 of the 15th round, thus ending Wepner's no-knockdown string. As Wepner got up, stumbling against the ropes, the referee stopped the fight, giving Ali the TKO. Actor Sylvester Stallone saw the fight and was so impressed with Wepner that he began to write a script about it, which eventually became "Rocky".|
