Chuck Wepner is a liquor salesman from Bayonne, NJ who drives a Cadillac with “Champ” vanity plates. A former New Jersey State Heavyweight Boxing Champion, he took abuse from Sonny Liston, got his nose broken by Muhammad Ali, and inspired Sylvester Stallone to write Rocky, which won three Academy Awards. His career took turn after strange turn as he worked to stay in the spotlight, including a fight against Andre the Giant (as “The Assassin”) and some boxing with 900 pound bear.
