"Maynard was shrewd, and Maynard was quick, and he managed to beat almost everyone to the punch ó sorry ó when he recorded the theme from Rocky and watched it rise to number 28 on the pop charts. As blatant as Ferguson's rendition is, it was still the best rendition of the Bill Conti tune at the time (a lot better than the composer's own number one version) ó and Maynard Ferguson's heroic propensity for high notes and his underdog status as a hitmaker make it easy to link him with his celluloid counterpart. This record gave Maynard Ferguson the largest amount of exposure that he ever had." - AMG.
