Apply WD-40 or any type of penetrating spray and let it work for at least 20 minutes. If the bolt is strong you can simply place a properly sized socket wrench over the bolt and use a box-end wrench (one with a closed-end/doughnut-hole) as leverage on the handle. If you're doing it correctly the 2-tools will resemble a wide V. Works like a charm.

How do you remove a stuck bolt from a circular saw?

What bolt and where is it stuck ? If it is the bolt holding the blade on, generally you hold the blade and loosen it. If this isn't possible for some reason, I would put a wrench on the head of the bolt, a 6 sided box end wrench instead of a 12 point. Hold the wrench on the head so it doesn't pop off and smack the end of the wrench down with a hammer. If you have access to one, an impact driver should do it. If it is some bolt on the saw itself, it would depend on where it was and what you can use to take it out.
