But Rocky lays low for several months. First he marries Adrian (Shire) and the two move into a nice new house. Rocky also buys a new sports car and a dog. But Rocky is unable to find a new job. He tries TV advertising, but can't read the cue cards correctly. He takes a job at a meathouse for awhile but ends up getting laid off. Eventually, begged by his former trainer and egged on by Apollo, he decides to start fighting again, despite his wife's reservations.
Rocky's training goes very badly at first - his heart isn't into it due to Adrian's disapproval. Now pregnant, she overexerts herself at work and ends up in a coma. Very upsettedly, Rocky visits her in the hospital and prays for her recovery. Eventually she does. Shortly afterward she has a son and names him Rocky Junior. Now she wants Rocky to fight the champion and win the championship. With her approval, Rocky is now able to put all his energy into training. Eventually the big day arrives and Rocky puts on a mean fight! (I won't give away any more details!)
