BBFC Ratings info
There is a mouthed use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder bad language includes ‘whore’, ‘son of a bitch’, ‘bastard’, ‘shit’, ‘ass’ and ‘screw you’. There is also infrequent use of discriminatory terms including ‘retarded’, ‘dago’ and ‘moron’.
There are scenes of boxing violence featuring occasional moderate bloody detail. A cut is made over a boxer’s eye to reduce the swelling, creating a brief blood spurt. There are scenes in which a drunk man behaves in an aggressive and demeaning manner towards his adult sister.
There are infrequent mild verbal sex references.

Sex & Nudity Reason
No Sex (implied sex). No Nudity. A scene of heavy kissing.
There are some pinups when Rocky breaks open a locker, quite brief and no nudity but scantily clad

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
Rocky is in a boxing match at the start. It is short but there is just normal boxing and a head butt. Some bruises and minor cuts.
Rocky's boxing match with Apollo Creed is quite long, many punches are thrown, Rocky's nose is broken, many bruises are shown on his face especially his eyes and he is knocked down many times. Apollo Creed is shown with many bruises and cuts as well. The dialog tells us that Rocky intends to punch Creed in the body and mentioned breaking ribs as a possibility to hamper Creed's breathing, and then in the fight, we learn that Rocky did break one of Creed's ribs and we see Creed listing slightly to one side. Rocky wants his eye to be cut due to heavy swelling from Apollo Creed's attack. Benny cuts him with a razor, blood runs down his face.
Some may feel the scenes in the meat locker to be "gore". The half-carcasses of cattle hang throughout ("sides of beef"), and Rocky angrily punches one. Then gets the idea of using them for training. He uses them in a supplement to punching bags, and gets his fists all bloody. He mentions that he is able to break the ribs in the sides of beef.
Around 5 uses of "whore".
Godd*mn is used 5 times one time being hard to hear
3 uses of a-s, 1 son of a b--ch, 1 bastard.
freaking loser, freaking moron are used.
After Rocky walked Little Marie home, she says "Screw you, Creepo!"
2 uses of "shit."
Some uses of "hell", and "damn."
Paulie says to Adrian that she's "busted" as an insult.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Another in which Adrian says she can't leave the house because she is cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving, and Paulie responds by taking the turkey out of the oven and throwing it out into the alley.
Another scene in which Adrian shouts at Paulie about his emotional abuse, about how he made her feel like a loser.
A scene when Paulie gets drunk and breaks stuff with the baseball bat.
Rocky and Apollo Creed's boxing match is both fun and unsettling just like seeing boxing in reality. The heavy bruising and both of them and the punches may cause people to flinch. Especially when Rocky's eyelids have to be cut, the brief spurt of blood may cause any to look away.
Some emotional moments.
