I wouldn't commpare Raging Bull to Rocky; Rocky is 100 times better.
the biography of Rocky does state the studio make Raging Bull because of Rocky II

It was on the Rocky documentary on the BIO channel. The success of Rocky II provided to the studios that boxing movies were bankable and they moved forward with Raging Bull.

Green Rep this shit if you never saw it and enjoyed it.

As far as opponents went - Drago's fight with Stallone was better, but Apollo was the more enjoyable figure in the series. I liked the fight in Rocky II better.

1 - Rocky IV
2 - Rocky
3 - Rocky VI
4 - Rocky III
5 - Rocky II
6 - Rocky V
