Rocky Balboa vs. Apollo Creed
Here it is -- the most influential and iconic bout in the history of Hollywood. Rocky's battle with Apollo Creed has been reworked in countless ways across numerous genres; it's evoked in virtually every scrappy-underdog tale. However, none have been quite able to match the original for spine-tingling tension. Even its over-familiarity (it plays on Jumbotrons in sports arenas virtually every night) hasn't dulled its impact; in addition to being breathlessly exciting and dramatically potent, it doesn't end quite the way you'd expect.
