Chuck by Elisabeth Moss( Visual )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa.

It's the beginning of a wild through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame-but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up?
